The departments of English and African American Studies at Emory University invite applications for a tenure-track assistant professor of African American literature and culture. The successful applicant is to be jointly appointed in the two departments, with undergraduate teaching in both departments and graduate-level teaching in the English department’s PhD program. Teaching responsibilities are two courses per semester.
We welcome applicants in any area of African American literary and cultural studies. We also welcome scholars whose teaching or research may draw on the Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Books Library, which houses holdings in African American history and literature – though we have no expectation of prior research there. Deadline for applications is November 1, 2017. PhD required by time of appointment.
Please submit a letter of interest, a brief statement about your experiences and commitment to teaching a diverse student body, curriculum vitae, three letters of support, and a writing sample of no more than 25 pages to: apply.interfolio.com/44596.
