19th c. British Lit. (Pre-MLA Deadlines) - Full-Time / Tenure-TrackEdit

Bridgewater State University (MA) - TT Asst. Professor - Nineteenth C. British Lit. (1789-1914) - PHONE INTERVIEW STAGEEdit

Bridgewater State University is a four-year comprehensive university in southeastern Massachusetts, serving over 10,000 undergraduate and graduate students via opportunities for close student/faculty interaction and a commitment to social justice. Two-thirds of our students are first-generation college students, students of color, and/or Pell Grant recipients. BSU is committed to the achievement of academic excellence by students from diverse backgrounds. BSU is primarily a teaching institution with ample opportunity for research (especially in collaboration with students), where faculty teach a 4/4 load with opportunities for course reductions and reassignments for service and research.

The successful candidate joins a vibrant campus supportive of literature and writing that includes a Visiting Authors Series, thriving Undergraduate Research program, and nationally recognized student journal, The Bridge. In addition to the literature major, the English Department houses numerous concentrations and minors, including those in Writing & Writing Studies, Film Studies, Childhood Studies, American Studies, Irish Studies, and Ethnic and Indigenous Studies. The Department also offers a Master's degree in English. Faculty are encouraged to teach and design courses according to their particular areas of interest. Our mission is to cultivate critical reading, writing, and thinking through the study of language, interpretation of literature, and the creation and analysis of texts. In doing so, we aim to develop ethical and discerning individuals prepared for civic, professional, and intellectual life.

Essential Duties: The Department of English at Bridgewater State University seeks applicants for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of English in nineteenth-century British literature with the ability to teach across the long nineteenth century (1789-1914). The successful applicant will design and teach upper-division and graduate courses in 19th century British literature and lower-division courses in composition or literature, as well as advise undergraduate and graduate students. Continuing scholarly activity and active participation in departmental and university-wide professional activities are expected.

Required Qualifications: PhD in English and university teaching experience required.

Applicants should be strongly committed to excellence in teaching and advising, and to working in a multicultural environment that fosters diversity. They should also have the ability to use technology effectively in teaching and learning, the ability to work collaboratively, evidence of scholarly activity, and a commitment to public higher education.

Since faculty in the Department teach first-year writing, preparation in composition will be an advantage.

Preferred Qualifications: Candidates with a publication record or comparable professional preparation are preferred.

Candidates whose experience has prepared them to contribute to college and university initiatives in digital pedagogy and scholarship and/or interdisciplinary collaboration are particularly encouraged to apply.

BSU is actively seeking to diversify its workforce and encourages candidates to discuss the perspectives or experiences they bring to their teaching and scholarship that would contribute to this goal.

Special Conditions for Eligibility: Please be aware that employment at Bridgewater State University is contingent upon completion of a successful background check.

EEO Statement: Bridgewater State University (BSU) is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer which actively seeks to increase the diversity of its workforce. We are dedicated to providing educational, working and living environments that value the diverse backgrounds of all people.

Teaching is reduced for junior faculty during the first five years for scholarly development, and all faculty are actively encouraged to seek external funding. Opportunities are available for faculty development, travel awards, and research with students. Lehman College and CUNY internal funding is available through competitive grants for scholarship support.

University of California, Riverside (CA) - TT Assistant Professor of Global Nineteenth-Century British Literary and Cultural Studies - CAMPUS VISIT STAGEEdit

Starting Date: July 1, 2018

Qualifications: Minimum requirements are a PhD. or "All But Dissertation" by the time of appointment.

Salary: Salary is commensurate with education and experience

The English Department at the University of California, Riverside has immediate needs in this area. We especially wish to attract scholars whose work engages nineteenth-century Britain’s global contexts, an emphasis that will complement our departmental strengths in transnational, hemispheric, and diasporic literatures. “Global contexts” may be conceived in diverse ways, whether as imperial and colonial power; as part of the Black Atlantic, Pacific, and other regional constellations; as a node within international political, cultural, and industrial connections; as related to environmental contexts or eco-critical methods; and other literary, cultural, theoretical, historical, and scientific interpretations of “global” not anticipated in this list. We are interested in scholars taking the very newest approaches to the field, beyond the limitations of conventional understandings of “Romantic” and “Victorian.” We seek a scholar whose work will create the richest connections across the department and campus.

We encourage applicants to visit our departmental website for information about our undergraduate and graduate programs as well as our faculty: http://www.english.ucr.edu

Application Procedure: Please provide a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a sample of teaching evaluations, a statement of contribution to diversity, a statement of research and teaching, a writing sample and a minimum of three recommendation letters. Materials should be uploaded using UCR's online applications system: https://aprecruit.ucr.edu/apply/JPF00792 .

Applicants who use Interfolio may utilize a feature provided by the Interfolio Service to allow Interfolio to upload their letters directly into AP Recruit. Applicants can input an Interfolio-generated email address in place of their letter writer's email address. Interfolio refers to this as Online Application Deliveries. The following link on the Interfolio website shows how to set this up ( http://help.interfolio.com/entries/24062742-Uploading-Letters-to-an-Online-Application-System ).

Review of applications will begin November 17, 2017 and may continue until the position has been filled. For full consideration, applications and supporting materials should be received by November 17, 2017.

NOTES:

  • It's quite surprising that Skype interview requests went out only four days (over a weeknd) after the deadline applications.
  • Yes, agreed the turnaround is unusually quick. They probably had a candidate in mind. 
  • I'd be more understanding of such a quick review and/or a candidate in mind if the search committee hadn't asked for *so many* things up front, and so many of which aren't typical pieces one already has drafted (like a diversity statement and a combined research and teaching statement). Multiplied by hundreds of candidates, that's a lot of wasted time for documents that clearly didn't get much of a look.

NOTES:

  • Did those who posted about not receiving an interview get an email? 
  • I would assume so.  I'm still waiting on a response as well.    
  • This is the rejection email: "Dear applicant, We appreciate your interest in the position. At this point, we have solicited references and writing samples from candidates whose applications remain under active consideration. We were fortunate to have an overwhelming response to our advertisement of the position, and we had to make difficult decisions. We wish you all the best in your future endeavors. Warm regards, Search Committee, Barnard College Assistant Professor of English" [posted 12/7]
  • I'm slightly confused. I was asked to submit more materials, but I have not heard anything and that was about three weeks ago. Are the people who are saying that they were rejected with no interview also people who were asked to submit more materials? Or are they people who were rejected without being asked to submit more materials?
  • I received a rejection letter and was not asked to submit more materials. The letter implied that, since you were asked for more materials, you may still be under active consideration. Looks like they still haven't invited people to interview yet.
