Reed College seeks candidates for a tenure-track appointment in English and Humanities, beginning August 2020, preferably at the rank of Assistant Professor. Candidates should specialize in Shakespeare and demonstrate competence in the broader fundamentals of dramatic form, theory, and history.

The teaching load will also include advising year-long senior theses. Above all, we seek candidates who have a strong commitment to teaching excellence at the undergraduate level and who are engaged in a lively and serious program of scholarship. Ph.D. is required at time of appointment. The Reed community believes cultural diversity to be essential to the excellence of our academic program.
