The Department of English at Rutgers-New Brunswick seeks a tenure-track assistant professor in African American Literature and Culture. We have particular need for colleagues with expertise in Black Feminism and / or Early African American Literature but encourage applications from scholars who work in any area of African American literary studies. This position will be based in the English department but will hold a partial appointment in Africana Studies, an interdisciplinary department bringing social scientific and humanities perspectives to bear on the culture and society of African, African American, and African diasporic peoples. Successful candidates must have the Ph.D. in hand (in English or a related field) by Fall 2024 and be ready to take on duties including undergraduate and graduate teaching and research. Rutgers English is home to a top-tier graduate program and a large and dynamic undergraduate major; our faculty and student population reflects the rich diversity of New Jersey.
