10-620 Assistant Professor of Eighteenth-Century British Literature

Recruitment Period

Open August 29th, 2013 through November 1st, 2013


The Department of Literature within the Division of Arts & Humanities at the University of California, San Diego (http://literature.ucsd.edu) seeks candidates specializing in British literature of the long eighteenth century whose research, teaching, or service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and inclusion in higher education. We welcome applications at every level of the assistant professor rank.

We seek candidates who have demonstrated the highest standards of scholarly contribution and professional activity; who will actively participate in our department's multilingual, transnational projects; whose methodological interests could include cultural studies, materialist approaches (corporeal and economic), and multilingual examinations. Ability to teach courses on periods from the Restoration to the Romantic era at levels ranging from broad undergraduate surveys to more specialized upper-division courses to graduate seminars is desirable. Special interests, such as transatlantic British literary studies, transnational literary projects, and the culture of empire are especially welcome. Demonstrated commitment to excellence by providing leadership in teaching, research, and service towards building an equitable and diverse scholarly environment is preferred.

Faculty members teach and supervise students at the undergraduate and graduate level. The level of appointment will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
