Visiting Assistant Professor of English in British Literature of the Long-Nineteenth Century

Job No: 496709
Position Type: full-time
Location: Lewisburg, PA
Categories: English

Bucknell University's English Department seeks to hire a one-year visiting assistant professor of British literature of the long-nineteenth century with a specialization in theories of race and empire. The position will begin in August 2021 and candidates must have a Ph.D. in hand by that time. Candidates must demonstrate excellence in teaching and be able to contribute to the Literary Studies Program's Race and Literature Concentration. We are especially interested in areas of research and teaching that build upon the department's strengths in race and ethnic studies; women's writing; gender, queer, and sexuality studies; intersectionality and literature; and environmental and medical humanities.

There is a 3/3 teaching load, and members of the department teach introductory as well as intermediate-level courses. We seek an outstanding faculty member with clear evidence of commitment to undergraduate teaching and research, student learning, diversity, and inclusive pedagogy. The successful candidate will contribute to Bucknell's commitment to the liberal arts through teaching courses that emphasize critical writing and are part of the college's core curriculum.

The department welcomes applications from members of groups that have been historically underrepresented in higher education. We believe that students learn best in a diverse, inclusive community and we are therefore committed to Bucknell's efforts to create a climate that fosters the growth and development of a diverse student body. We seek a teacher-scholar who has a demonstrated commitment to diversity and high impact educational practices (writing intensive courses, interdisciplinary courses, global learning, etc.).

Application materials include a Cover Letter, CV, and Diversity Statement (one-page statement describing how commitment to diversity is present in the candidate's teaching, research, and mentoring). Candidates invited to submit for a second round will be asked for a teaching philosophy, sample syllabi, and three letters of recommendation. All materials must be submitted through Bucknell's career site ( Review of applications will begin on May 3, 2021, and continue until the position is filled.
