University of Nebraska - Omaha (NE) - TT Asst. Professor of EnglishEdit

The Goodrich Scholarship Program (the Nebraska State-funded program founded in 1972 by the Nebraska State legislature) is an academic unit of the College of Public Affairs and Community Service at the University of Nebraska, Omaha. Annually, the program offers full-tuition and general fees scholarship to incoming college students who demonstrate high academic potential and high financial need, who are Nebraska residents, and who enroll at the University of Nebraska, Omaha; the 2018 cohort consists of 60 students (aka scholars). The program has produced over 1,900 graduates. Many Goodrich scholars are first-gen college students and PELL grant recipients. Goodrich is committed to cultural and intellectual diversity in its pedagogy, curriculum, and student programing. Goodrich has its own required freshman/sophomore curriculum (a gateway curriculum that is a part of the university’s General Education curriculum).

We are seeking a full-time tenure-track Assistant Professor of English (with an already earned PhD in English from an accredited school) to teach certain required courses in the Goodrich freshman sequence, which includes English Composition, Autobiographical Reading and Writing, and Perspectives on US American Culture (a 6-credit hour course offered in the spring semester). The successful teacher-scholar candidate must have demonstrated excellence in teaching (with at least two years of experience teaching lower-level undergraduate classes) and must have demonstrated a potential for excellence in research and service. The university’s official faculty workload consists of 12 hours every semester. A research-active/productive faculty usually has a 3-credit course release which means a teaching load of 9 credit hours (usually 3 courses) and a research load of 3 credit hours every semester. Every semester, a research-active/productive Goodrich faculty teaches 2 classes (6 hours) in Goodrich and a third class (3 credit hours), usually a graduate or undergraduate course (in another department or unit) open to all UNO students. Goodrich faculty have different disciplinary backgrounds which currently include philosophy, urban studies, psychology, and English, so what third class a faculty member teaches depends on the faculty’s disciplinary interests and expertise. Furthermore, faculty/staff work closely together through Goodrich’s support services to advance the academic and career goals of our Goodrich scholars. Salary: competitive.

To apply, go to https://unomaha.peopleadmin.com/postings/7093 and complete the online University of Nebraska, Omaha job application form; note that except for item 5 below, the following documents must be attached to the electronic application: 1. Cover letter, 2. Curriculum Vitae (including e-mail addresses for three references), 3. Transcripts (graduate and undergraduate), 4.
