The Center for Jewish Studies is pleased to announce that following a national competition, it has received a grant from the Jim Joseph Foundation to fund a two-year long teaching fellowship in Jewish studies. Like the other programs awarded the grant, the Center for Jewish Studies was chosen because of its past record of achievement and its vision for future growth. The Jim Joseph Teaching Fellow will be appointed at the rank of Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of History. In addition to teaching four courses a year, the teaching fellow will help to raise the visibility of Jewish studies and related cultural events on campus and beyond.
The Jim Joseph Teaching Fellowship is part of the Jewish Studies Expansion Program (JSEP), a new initiative of the Foundation for Jewish Culture, supported by the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation and the Jim Joseph Foundation.
