The English Department at Clemson University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Creative Writing, with specialization in Poetry, beginning Fall 2022. Successful candidates will hold an MFA or PhD in Creative Writing or related field, will have published or have under contract at least one poetry book with a distinguished press, and be qualified to teach both the writing and reading of poetry. Experience with other genres is welcome. 

Duties will include maintaining an active research and writing profile, developing and teaching undergraduate and graduate creative writing workshops and other English Department courses, mentoring undergraduate and graduate students, serving on various departmental and university-level committees, and contributing to the intellectual life of the English Department. 

The normal teaching load for tenured and tenure-track faculty is two courses per semester. 

Clemson is an R-I land grant institution located in upstate South Carolina—a global university with a mission to serve the diverse communities of our state. In 2016 Clemson inaugurated Clemson Forward, a strategic plan to strengthen its research profile, diversity, and workplace quality of life. The English Department has taken a leading role in pursuing these goals by confronting legacies of violence and nurturing traditions of political and intellectual organizing on our campus. For this reason, the search committee is especially interested to hear from candidates who bring to their research and teaching the diverse perspectives that come from non-traditional educational backgrounds or an understanding of the experience of those under-represented in higher education.

Application Procedures: for full consideration please submit a cover letter outlining your interest in and qualifications for the position and a copy of your updated curriculum vitae to Interfolio by October 15, 2021
