There is a 3/2 teaching load, and members of the department teach introductory as well as advanced-level courses. We seek an outstanding faculty member with a demonstrable commitment to undergraduate research, student learning, diversity, and inclusive pedagogy. The successful candidate will contribute to Bucknell’s commitment to the liberal arts through teaching courses that emphasize critical writing and are part of the college’s core curriculum.

Application materials include a cover letter, CV, a statement addressing your experience and potential as a teacher, a statement addressing your scholarly interests, and three letters of recommendation. Applications will only be accepted through Bucknell's online career center (http://careers.bucknell.edu). Review of applications will begin on November 5th and continue until the position is filled.

About Bucknell: Founded in 1846 and located along the banks of the Susquehanna River in historic Lewisburg, Pa., Bucknell University is an undergraduate-focused institution that stands uniquely at the intersection of top-ranked liberal arts, engineering and management programs.
