The English Department and the Program in Environmental Thought and Practice at the University of Virginia invite applications for a tenure-track or tenured position in Environmental Humanities to begin Fall 2016 at the rank of assistant or associate professor. These hires are part of a broader, multiyear initiative on Humanities 2020: Research, Discovery and the Common Good funded in partnership by the Andrew H. Mellon Foundation and the College and Graduate School of Arts & Sciences. Applicants should provide evidence of sustained critical and pedagogical engagement with literature in relation to environmental and ecological studies, with Ph.D. in English or a related field in hand by August 25, 2016.

The candidate appointed to this position will teach two courses per semester, with courses shared and, where feasible, cross-listed between English and the Program in Environmental Thought and Practice. Teaching will include both undergraduate and graduate courses, with the expectation that the candidate will teach lower-division service courses as well as specialized seminars at the upper division and graduate levels while contributing service to both units. We are particularly interested in candidates whose work focuses on environmental and ecological themes (broadly construed) in relation to literature and culture before 1900. While we hope to make an appointment at the advanced assistant or associate level, we are open to applications from new or recent Ph.D. recipients as well. During the first year of the appointment the new hire will be appointed as an Andrew W. Mellon Fellow of the Institute of Humanities and Global Cultures and will receive one course release. The Fellow will be an actively engaged member of the IHGC community and will serve on the IHGC Faculty Advisory Committee.

  • I haven't heard a thing.  The wording did say "we hope to have scheduled interviews by 12/15," but that's not much solace.  Rest assured you have peers also in torment out there.  :(

  • Also posted at Womens/Gender/Queer Studies 2015-2016
  • FYI, on the first page of the application, the site suggests uploading a CV to make the process quicker. It doesn't make it quicker. It tries to autopopulate all of the fields with all of the wrong information pulled from your CV. Took me twenty minutes before I realized how long it was going to take and ended up redoing the whole application. Easier and quicker to enter the info manually.
