The successful candidate will teach a variety of courses in early modern literature and culture, as well as a historical survey course on premodern literatures in English.

Candidates must demonstrate a record of excellence in both research and teaching. Evidence of research excellence will be shown through research of an internationally competitive caliber, demonstrated by publications in leading journals and/or with leading presses in the relevant field; or a research pipeline that is at a high international level; presentations at significant conferences; awards; and strong endorsements from referees of high international standing. Evidence of excellence in teaching will be demonstrated by teaching accomplishments, and the teaching dossier (including a statement of teaching philosophy, teaching evaluations, and sample syllabi) submitted as part of this application, as well as strong letters of reference. The successful candidate is expected to be able to communicate effectively as an undergraduate and graduate teacher.
