Selected Job Openings:
The English, History, and Religion departments of Kalamazoo College announce a new, cross-disciplinary appointment in Pre-Modern Culture. All of the positions dealing with literature, religion, and history in the West before 1800 have now been rolled into a single position, allowing these three departments to expand their offerings in European and American history and literature since 1995. The person hired to this position will be responsible for covering all events of cultural significance in the West from 600 CE to 1800 CE. Teaching load is 3-2, but the candidate may offer additional courses if s/he feels that such are necessary. Candidate should have secondary interests in sub-colonial literature post-1995. Publications in modern Japanese architecture a plus.
Carleton College is hiring an Assistant Professor in Modernism. Our program emphasizes a low student-faculty ratio and we are proud of the large number of our majors who design innovative independent studies. Faculty teach a 2-2 course load in order to allow for plenty of student contact time and to develop a cutting-edge curriculum. Candidates must provide evidence of excellence in teaching and a commitment to a liberal arts education. Tenure and promotion decisions will be based entirely on scholarly publications and research output.
Rutgers University’s French Department is now accepting applications for a position in 17th and/or 18th and/or 19th and/or 20th with a strong preference for a period that students give a shit about. Successful candidates will confirm our elusive yet steadfast commitment to interdisciplinarity, as well as be excited about participating in our cross-cultural transnational community of scholars. Work on globalization, intercultural communication, gender, translation, the French Revolution, and Jacques Rancière a must. Teaching load is 4 elementary French classes per semester, two of which will be on-line.
College of Wooster, in rural Ohio, has an opening for an assistant professor. We will only consider applications from ivy-league Ph.D.s who will contribute to our elite aura (which is all we have going for us anyway) and who will leave within three years. Teaching load is 5/5. Preference given to those with no teaching experience whatsoever. We are especially interested in candidates who held research fellowships and didn’t have to even TA while they were in graduate school. Research productivity in new hires is discouraged as anti-collegial and will count against you for tenure.
Alfred University, a private university in New York, is pleased to announce several vacancies or impending-vacancies in our English department as a result of multiple retirements and (fingers crossed!) negative tenure decisions. Accordingly, we invite applicants in STEM fields to replace at least two of these vacancies and to serve our university’s new Schools of Medicine and Engineering. Salary commensurate with combined 9 salaries of exiting/terminated faculty in English by 2014.
Additional vacancies expected in Philosophy and Romance Languages may also allow for administrative hires in Public Relations, Faculty Management, and Enrollment Science as well.
