Description

The Department of English at Johns Hopkins seeks, over the coming two academic years, to appoint four scholars of outstanding reputation at the rank of tenured Professor or tenured Associate Professor. These appointments will contribute to a historic, transformative expansion of a department long recognized for its singular contribution to literary study. Applicants should hold a PhD in English, Comparative Literature, or a related field and have produced a significant body of scholarly work. Applications from scholars in any subfield of literatures in English, including comparatists with substantial expertise in English-language writing, are welcome.

The Department is conducting a broad and inclusive search and is committed to identifying candidates who through their research, teaching, and service will contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community. We strongly encourage applications from women and members of other social groups historically underrepresented in higher education in the humanities.

Consistent with the University’s goals of achieving excellence in all areas, we will assess the comprehensive qualifications of each applicant.
