The Department of English at Skidmore College invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor in creative writing/fiction. We are particularly interested in candidates who can add to the diversity and excellence of our academic community through their research, teaching, and service. Normal teaching load is 4-5 courses per year depending on credit hours. All professors are expected to participate fully in the life of the college, including advising, faculty governance, department activities, and periodic teaching in the college’s First Year Experience program.

Ph.D., M.F.A., or equivalent required. Desired qualifications include a significant record of publication with major independent, university, or commercial presses and a range of reputable journals. Applicants must demonstrate excellence in teaching fiction workshops at the college level as well as a commitment to undergraduate liberal arts education.

To ensure full consideration, application should be received by October 15, 2018.

All applications will be acknowledged; interviews will be held via video conferencing in early January. Individuals from underrepresented groups and who have experience teaching students from a diverse range of backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply.

Skidmore is a highly selective liberal arts college that fosters creative approaches to teaching and learning. With its relatively small size and student-faculty ratio, the College is a close-knit academic community. Skidmore’s faculty of teacher-scholars are devoted to the instruction and mentoring of approximately 2,400 talented undergraduates from some 47 states and 46 countries.
