Faculty Positions in Nineteenth-Century British literature and culture
Department of English
Arts and Science
The Department of English at New York University invites applications for two tenure-track positions in Nineteenth-Century British literature and culture to begin September 1, 2020, pending budgetary and administrative approval. The successful candidate must be in possession of a relevant doctoral degree and must demonstrate scholarly excellence and a commitment to both graduate and undergraduate teaching. While the primary focus of recruitment will be appointments at the level of assistant professor, the department can consider appointing an exceptional associate professor. Applications are especially welcome from candidates in the following subfields: critical race studies; indigeneity and colonialism; gender and sexuality studies; environmental studies and ecocriticism.
Candidates should submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation and a 20 to 25-page writing sample via Interfolio link: http://apply.interfolio.com/66942. Because diversity is such an important part of the NYU mission, we request that applicants include a separate paragraph in the application letter telling us how diversity figures into their past, present, and future teaching, research, and community engagement.
Applications should be received by end of business on October 3, 2019 for full consideration.
The Faculty of Arts and Science at NYU is at the heart of a leading research university that spans the globe. We seek scholars of the highest caliber, who embody the diversity of the United States as well as the global society in which we live. We strongly encourage applications from women, racial and ethnic minorities, and other individuals who are under-represented in the profession, across color, creed, race, ethnic and national origin, physical ability, gender and sexual identity, or any other legally protected basis. NYU affirms the value of differing perspectives on the world as we strive to build the strongest possible university with the widest reach.
