Kennesaw State University is now accepting applications for a nine-month, tenure-track Assistant Professor of English (Disability Studies and Global Anglophone Literature) in the Department of English to begin August 1, 2022. The Department of English seeks a collaborative and collegial teacher-scholar for a tenure-track position in disability studies with a specialization in Global Anglophone, transatlantic, and/or diasporic literatures.


Strong scholarship that can successfully compete for external funding along with a commitment to excellence in teaching and engagement is expected of all faculty members in the Radow College of Humanities and Social Sciences at KSU. The standard teaching load is 3/3. Faculty in the Department teach in a variety of modalities, including face-to-face, hybrid, and online. 


This nine-month tenure track position includes the following responsibilities:

  • Teaching undergraduate courses in Disability Studies and Global Anglophone Literatures in the English B.A. program in face-to-face, hybrid, and online modalities
  • Providing service to the department, college, university, and/or professional community
  • Pursuing a consistent schedule of scholarship/research activity and productivity
  • Developing courses in medical and/or environmental humanities


An earned Doctorate, or a foreign equivalent, in English or a closely related field is required. ABD will be considered; however, degree must be earned before start date.

Ideal candidates will have a promising record of scholarship in Disability Studies and Global Anglophone Literature, or related areas. 

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.
