Assistant/Associate Professor in American Literature, Texas Christian University

The Department of English at Texas Christian University invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track position in American literature at the rank of assistant or associate professor to begin in August 2024.

We welcome candidates with a specialization in American literature to contribute to our undergraduate and graduate curriculum and to actively mentor and direct graduate students. Candidates with expertise in teaching and researching in areas with important social implications such as environmental studies (including from Indigenous perspectives), multiethnic literatures (especially Asian American), or law and literature are especially encouraged to apply. We see this position as building on recent hiring in the English department in decolonial and anti-racist pedagogies and practices as well as a recent cluster hire in research related to diversity, equity, and inclusion in the AddRan College of Liberal Arts.

The position carries a 3/2 teaching load (with a one course reduction for two years if pre-tenure), a competitive salary, and internal research support. In addition to teaching duties, the successful candidate will mentor undergraduate and graduate students, carry out a scholarly research agenda, and contribute service and leadership at the department and university levels.
