NOTES AND QUERIES:

Cross-posted at Renaissance 2011 & Medieval 2011

I currently work as a lecturer here although not in this field. The teaching load is largely composition classes, and not literature despite what the ad portrays (2 comp: 1 lit). The composition classes are highly demanding: with mandatory conferences with students and bi-weekly mandatory staff meetings. The department is nice, but not very social. Rent is expensive in the area (for the pay). Lecturers are on yearly, renewable contracts... although we have been told nothing about that process.

I work here too. There is an error in the ad--PhD in hand by Sept. 1 2011--not 2010, so if you're in your last year in a PhD program do apply. Also, the department is committed to seeing that literature lecturers teach mostly literature--with the faculty and chair in agreement (2 Lit, 1 Comp). This year was an anomaly in that due to an unexpected increase in another field, composition courses were left understaffed. Another search is underway to solve this problem for next year. Perhaps the person above is reluctant, but our chair is very approachable and would welcome a chat about the renewal process, and I'm quite friendly!

Wartburg College (IA)Edit

"Full-time, tenure track position beginning fall term 2011, includes excellent benefits. Teach seven undergraduate courses or equivalent per year distributed among Fall, Winter, and May terms from among the following areas: British literature, general education courses including composition, introductory and specialized courses in the major. Advise majors and minors. Develop and teach departmental and general education courses as needed. Engage in scholarship and service activities appropriate to a college with a liberal arts emphasis.

Required: PhD with a research focus in British literature, college level teaching experience in British Literature and composition, ability to demonstrate a record of dynamic and creative teaching, and a willingness to support the mission of the college. Preferred: Strong candidates will be generalists capable of teaching the full British literary survey, with a demonstrable interest in teaching interdisciplinary courses in our general education curriculum. Candidates who complement departmental strengths through scholarship or teaching experience in one or more of the following areas are desirable: history and structure of English, cultural studies, drama and/or poetry. Willingness to conduct biennial courses in England also desired."
