Assistant Professor - English
The Department of English at Regis University seeks qualified candidates for a tenure-track position beginning in the 2020-2021 academic year, with a starting date of August 1, 2021. The teaching load is 3/4. Candidates must have the ability to teach composition, beginning and advanced creative writing, early American literature, and core literature classes with a demonstrated record of teaching excellence. Secondary specializations include film studies, women and gender studies, and literary publishing. While Regis values research (and a record of sustained scholarship is required for tenure), a commitment to inclusive teaching is essential; the candidate must demonstrate the skills to work effectively with racially, socioeconomically, and religiously diverse student populations.
The department invites applications from and is committed to hiring qualified candidates from groups that are underrepresented in our discipline and among our faculty. We welcome candidates who bring diverse cultural, ethnic, gender, and religious perspectives to their teaching and scholarship. The successful candidate will have equal responsibilities in teaching, service, scholarship. Service expectations include service to students directly associated with the courses taught, participation within the department and on committees, and any service activities written into the position’s contract.
Ph.D. in English, creative writing, or a related field at the time appointment begins; record of successful teaching; strong potential as a colleague in the work of English Studies.
