Open Literature and Writing Position
College of the Atlantic
College of the Atlantic (COA) seeks a full-time, tenure-track equivalent faculty member to teach literature and writing (Ph.D. required). All students at COA design their own transdisciplinary degree within our single major of human ecology. A few students will go on to further literary or writing study; most will use literature as a means of gaining insight into the complexities of human experience, cultures, relations to the natural world, and ways of living. Students also use literature and writing courses to develop critical thinking and writing skills. As such, the college is looking for a faculty member with deep but also broad background, skills, and knowledge who is capable of engaging with multiple literary genres and eager to collaborate with faculty in other disciplines. As part of the college’s commitment to the practice of human ecology, candidates should be interested in teaching literature and writing to students working on projects across disciplinary boundaries.
At COA we believe there is core value to grounding students in a variety of literary languages, traditions, and genres because these provide fundamental means of understanding diverse cultures, languages, and language practices. Candidates for this position must have demonstrated excellence and enthusiasm for teaching first-year writing and literature. Requirements include experience in teaching writing and evidence of scholarship or ability and enthusiasm to teach in at least three of the following:
• Comparative and world literatures
• Indigenous literatures
• Subaltern literatures (queer, postcolonial, feminist)
• Anglophone literatures beyond the US and UK
• Creative writing (poetry, fiction, drama, creative nonfiction)
College of the Atlantic is committed to increasing diversity, fostering inclusion, and achieving equity in all aspects of its work. We especially encourage candidates who demonstrate how their teaching, service, and research would contribute to making the college more inclusive, equitable, and diverse. We are particularly interested in an individual’s record working with students, colleagues, and communities who identify with the experiences of those historically excluded, under-represented or marginalized in higher education. The search committee welcomes applications from those historically under-represented in higher education.
Please send letter of interest, CV, statement of teaching philosophy to include your approach to and experience with teaching diverse learners, and descriptions of five courses you would be prepared to teach, along with the names of three references in one PDF document to firstname.lastname@example.org. Review of applications will begin March 23, 2020, and continue until the position is filled. Appointment by the fall term of 2020 or winter 2021 is highly desirable.
April 10, 2020: Update on timing for College of the Atlantic Literature/Writing Search
The search committee for Literature/Writing at College of the Atlantic notes that due to disruptions from the COVID-19 pandemic, we have begun reading applications on April 6, 2020 and will continue considering applications until the position is filled. Our campus is closed for spring term, and we will not complete the search until we can arrange full campus visits (Fall 2020 or later).
Thank you to all candidates for your patience during these rapidly changing times.
