Visiting Assistant Professor of English (Modern/Contemporary Americanist) – Flagler College

Flagler College is seeking a Visiting Assistant Professor of English who specializes in Modern & Contemporary American Literature.  Secondary specializations are open, though the possible ability to teach Fiction in the Writing Track would be a particular strength.  More generally, someone with a strong generalist background and capable of teaching multiple areas at the undergraduate level would be especially welcome.

The appointment will be for one year (2021-2022), with the possibility of renewal thereafter based upon departmental needs.  The position may become a full-time line in the future, and the Visiting Assistant would be a candidate for that position if desired.


The annual teaching load is a 4/4.  The Fall schedule will include freshman composition and a variety of 300/400-level offerings; but in terms of specifics at the upper-division level the department will be flexible to accommodate the strengths/interests of the candidate.
