The ability to teach Critical Race Theory is required. The ideal candidate will have a PhD in English or a related field, demonstrable excellence in teaching, and a robust scholarly program, and will contribute to the Literary Studies Program’s Race and Literature Concentration. We are especially interested in areas of research and teaching that build upon the department’s current strengths in race and ethnic studies; gender, queer, and sexuality studies; intersectionality and literature; and environmental and medical humanities. This position is part of a Bucknell cluster hire focusing on race in conjunction with the departments of Education, History, and Sociology.
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 clear evidence of commitment to undergraduate teaching and 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, in addition to the gateway course for the Race and Literature concentration.
Bucknell University, an Equal Opportunity Employer, welcomes applications from members of groups that have been historically underrepresented in higher education.

Application materials include a Cover Letter, CV, and Diversity Statement (one-page statement describing how commitment to diversity is present in the candidate’s teaching, research, and mentoring). Candidates invited to submit for a second round will be asked for a writing sample, sample syllabi, and three letters of recommendation.
