Assistant Professor of English (Publishing and Professional Writing)

Department of English


Kennesaw State University is now accepting applications for a nine-month, tenure-track Assistant Professor of English in the Department of English to begin August 2022.


A commitment to excellence in teaching, complimented by strong scholarship, engagement and service is expected of all faculty members in KSU’s Radow College of Humanities and Social Sciences.


Specific responsibilities include:

  • Teaching undergraduate and graduate publishing and professional writing courses (and possibly courses focusing on the candidate’s secondary area of expertise) on a 3/3 load in various modalities, including face-to-face, hybrid, and online;
  • Producing quality and significant discipline-specific research/scholarly/creative activities;
  • Contributing to the service efforts of the department, university, profession, and community;
  • Supporting the professional interests and experiences of students through internships, community/work-based initiatives, and engagement.


PhD, MFA, or its foreign equivalent, in English, writing, or a closely related field is required. Candidates who are ABD may apply; however, degree must be earned by the hire date.


Ideal candidates will have a background in publishing and professional writing in either academic or industry settings with a promising record of research or creative activities in these areas.


Qualifications to teach or develop courses in at least one of these secondary support areas is also preferred: feature writing, editing, career development, book design, digital/interactive storytelling, and/or book history/history of the publishing industry.


KSU’s student population is as diverse as the population of the Atlanta metro area and includes a high proportion of traditionally underrepresented groups and first-generation college students.

We prefer candidates who share the Department of English’s explicit commitment to teaching diverse communities and our belief that our diversity is our strength. Individuals from historically underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged to apply.
