Do you want to focus on research only or do you enjoy teaching? If the latter is the case, the US can offer you many job opportunities.
I received the announcement below from Andrew Nicholson, through the Indology mailing list.
The South Asia Studies Department at the University of Pennsylvania invites applications for a full-time appointment as Lecturer in Sanskrit. The appointment will begin in August 2014 and includes teaching six courses per academic year. This appointment will be for one academic year with the possibility of annual renewal for up to an additional two years, contingent upon a satisfactory performance review and approval of the Dean.
The appointee will be expected to contribute to the long-term quality, stability and development of the Sanskrit program at Penn. Candidates must have research and teaching experience in Sanskrit. A PhD or near-PhD is strongly preferred. Preference will be given to candidates with proven creativity and pedagogical success in the design and delivery of courses, particularly at the elementary and intermediate levels of instruction.
Submit a cover letter, CV, and a statement of teaching philosophy and methods via the University job search web site.
Also submit the names and contact information of three referees who have agreed to provide letters of reference. The University will contact the referees with instructions on how to submit their letters.
Review of applications will begin immediately and the process will continue until the position is filled.
Have you ever taught in the US? How good/bad was your experience?
