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.

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.

Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster (DEU) - W2-Professorship (TT Assoc. Prof. equivalent) - Book StudiesEdit

The English Department (Englisches Seminar) of the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster is filling a W2-Professorship (Tenure-track Associate Professor-equivalent) position in Book Studies, to begin on 1 October 2019.

The successful applicant will demonstrate broad expertise in English histories of the book. The professorship covers the historical and contemporary interdisciplinary study of the production, distribution, and reception of printed and digital texts in the Anglophone world. This will include both specific characteristics of written communication and their function in society and culture. We expect an emphasis in at least two Anglophone regions and two historical periods. Additionally, we are seeking expertise in book history, modern forms of text production and reception, material culture, digital culture, legal aspects of the academic study of the book, or print capitalism and print nationalism. We are looking for candidates who employ a diversity of methodological approaches, including empirical methods.

The successful applicant will be a creative and dynamic academic with an international reputation and network. Candidates should demonstrate the ability to teach at the college level in English, and to supervise students at the B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. levels of the English Department. All faculty members are expected to contribute to the administrative committees of the department.

Demonstrable qualifications at the date of employment will include a completed Ph.D. in the field with high marks and evidence of pedagogical skill. Additionally, we expect evidence of introductory-level academic employment in the form of an assistant professorship, a German Juniorprofessur, a habilitation, a postdoc, or or a fellowship at a university, an academic research institute, or at a government agency or private research institute focusing on the book industry, either in Germany or abroad.

The WWU Münster advocates for gender equality and hopes to increase the number of women in research and teaching. We therefore explicitly encourage women scholars to apply. In cases where all other qualifications are equal, women applicants will receive preferential consideration. The same is true for applicants with disabilities.

Please submit a CV (lebenslauf), an overview of your academic formation (akademischer Werdegang), transcripts (zeugnisse), a list of publications (schriftenverzeichnis), and a list of courses taught (Liste der durchgeführten Lehrveranstaltungen). At a later stage of the selection process, you may be asked to also submit writing samples.

Please submit your application materials by 14 September 2018 as a PDF to dekanat.fb.philologie@uni-muenster.de. Please use the phrase "Application: W2-Professur für Book Studies" in the subject line. Alternatively, you may send the materials by mail to:
