Assistant Professor of English (Eighteenth-Century and Romanticism)
The English department at Kenyon College, a highly selective, nationally ranked liberal arts college in central Ohio, invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track Assistant Professor position in eighteenth-century literature and Romanticism, to begin July 1, 2020. Scholars with research and teaching interests in transatlantic studies, environmental humanities, gender and sexuality studies, disability studies, and/or the digital humanities are particularly welcome, as are candidates who can broaden the English department’s curricular diversity and contribute to one or more of Kenyon’s interdisciplinary programs, including African Diaspora Studies, Comparative World Literature, Environmental Studies, Latino/a Studies, and Women’s and Gender Studies. The teaching requirement will be five courses per year (divided 3:2 or 2:3) and will include courses at all levels of the curriculum. Additional responsibilities will include contributions to the life of the English department and the College (including advising students, directing honors projects, and participating in faculty governance). Evidence of teaching excellence at the undergraduate level is required. Candidates should have completed a Ph.D. by August 2020. A completed application must include 1) a cover letter detailing research interests, teaching experience, and teaching philosophy with information on ways that issues and practices related to diversity, inclusion, and equity have been or will be included in teaching and advising; 2) a Curriculum Vitae; and 3) a writing sample of up to 30 pages. Applicants should also submit the names and email addresses of at least three references, including at least one who can attest to the applicant’s teaching effectiveness and potential. These references will be prompted by email to upload their letters of recommendation to the application website at a later stage. All application materials must be submitted electronically through Kenyon’s website at http://careers.kenyon.edu. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position has been filled; to ensure full consideration, candidates should submit preliminary materials by November 1. Applications will be acknowledged by automatic response. Preliminary interviews will be held by Zoom, Google Meet, or Skype, with on-campus interviews to follow. An Equal Opportunity Employer, Kenyon encourages diversity and welcomes applications from women and minority candidates.
