Statement on the TAAF Grant Read

Visiting Assistant Professor, English


Review begins March 11

Bucknell University’s English Department seeks to hire a visiting assistant professor of Multiethnic Literatures of the United States. The two-year position will begin in August 2024. PhD in English or a related field is desired by the start date; candidates who have successfully defended their dissertation but do not yet have the degree in hand may also be considered. Candidates must demonstrate excellence in teaching, 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 Literary Studies program’s strengths in race and ethnic studies; race and empire; women’s writing; gender, queer, and sexuality studies; intersectionality and literature; and environmental or medical humanities.

There is a 3/3 teaching load, and members of the department teach introductory as well as intermediate- and 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 teach courses that emphasize critical writing and contribute to Bucknell’s core curriculum and its commitment to the liberal arts.
