We are conducting an open rank search to fill a tenured or tenure track position in fiction. Interested applicants should have at least one book of fiction published by a reputable house, and another underway. Teaching responsibilities (two courses per semester) will include undergraduate and graduate courses.

Applicants should demonstrate commitment to inclusive teaching practices, including the teaching of literature that reflects diverse experiences of race, ethnicity, gender and sexuality, and class. We are particularly interested in candidates with a demonstrated ability to develop and teach courses in one or more of the following areas: African-American, Native American, Latinx, Asian-American, World, or LGBTQ Literature. The Writing Seminars, one of the oldest graduate programs in creative writing, offers a fully funded two-year Master of Fine Arts degree in poetry and fiction, as well as an undergraduate major.
