The Department of English at the University of Oregon invites specialists of Asian American Literature to apply for the position of assistant professor to begin Fall 2014. We seek candidates who demonstrate potential for outstanding research and teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels. We are a diverse and growing department with strengths in British, American, and Anglophone literary studies, as well as in environmental humanities, queer and gender studies, rhetoric, disability studies, folklore, and film and media. We are especially interested in scholars whose research and teaching will help enhance the department’s existing strengths in the cross-examination of race, gender, class, disability, ethnicity and ecology, empire and imperialism, and (post)colonial and (trans)national cultural formations; and we encourage applications from candidates who have experience working with students from diverse backgrounds.
Minimum Requirements: Ph.D. in English or related field in hand by time of appointment.
Salary is competitive.
Candidates are asked to apply on line at www.academicjobsonline.org by submitting an application letter, a curriculum vitae, a writing sample of approximately 20 pages, and contact information for three referees by November 15, 2013. Please do not have letters of recommendation sent to Academic Jobs Online; we will request three letters of recommendation at a later point. If you are unable to use this online resource, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange alternate means of submitting application materials. Application materials received after November 15, 2013 will not be considered.
