Job description

ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF SPANISH, College of Arts & Sciences
2060/J0418

The Department of Romance Studies at Boston University invites applications for the tenure-track position of Assistant Professor of Spanish in colonial and postcolonial Latin American studies, beginning July 1, 2019.

We believe that the cultural and social diversity of our Department is vitally important to the excellence of our academic programs, and we encourage applications from candidates who will contribute to the diversity and inclusiveness of our teaching, research, and learning.

The candidate’s work should focus on Colonial Latin America (15th–18th centuries) and the cultural interactions between Spain and Africa, Asia, and the Americas. We seek a candidate who can address the relevance of colonial Latin American literature within contemporary transatlantic or postcolonial studies. Subfield is open, but we are interested in interdisciplinary approaches to Mesoamerica, the Andean region, the African diaspora, or indigenous studies. Interest in translation studies is highly desirable. The successful candidate will teach at both the undergraduate and graduate level.

DO NOT APPLY THROUGH THE BOSTON UNIVERSITY HR WEBSITE.

Applicants should submit a letter describing teaching and research interests; two representative writing samples; recent teaching evaluations; and three letters of recommendation through Academic Jobs Online. Application deadline: November 15, 2018. Inquiries about the position may be directed to Prof. Christopher Maurer, interim chair, [email protected].


We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. We are a VEVRAA Federal Contractor.
