Tenure-Track Assistant Professor of English in Race and Literature

Job No: 496831
Position Type: full-time
Location: Lewisburg, PA
Categories: English

Bucknell University's English Department seeks to hire a tenure-track assistant professor of race and literature with a specialization in African American and/or African-diasporic literature in any historical period beginning August 2022. The ability to teach Critical Race Theory is required. Candidates should have a PhD in English or a related field by the start date, demonstrable excellence in teaching, and a robust scholarly program, and will 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 current strengths in race and ethnic studies; gender, queer, and sexuality studies; intersectionality and literature; and environmental and medical humanities. This position is part of a Bucknell cluster hire focusing on race in conjunction with the departments of Education, History, and Sociology.

There is a 3/2 teaching load, and members of the department teach introductory as well as advanced-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, in addition to the gateway course for the Race and Literature concentration.

Bucknell University, an Equal Opportunity Employer, 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. 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 writing sample, sample syllabi, and three letters of recommendation. Applications will only be accepted through Bucknell's online jobs portal: http://jobs.bucknell.edu. Review of applications will begin on October 19 and continue until the position is filled.
