The University delivers challenging and high-quality educational experiences to a diverse group of learners. The University has a strong core curriculum rooted in the liberal arts, an enduring commitment to internationalization that has garnered the Senator Paul Simon Award, and a practical, experiential approach to learning. The University offers more than 200 areas of study, including majors in our colleges of Arts and Letters, Business, Natural and Health Sciences and Social Sciences, Math and Education and 14 master's programs.

 

We are particularly interested in scholars of African American studies, Latinx studies, or colonialism. Research and teaching specializations that might complement existing departmental strengths include gender and sexuality, Black literature, Cuban American literature, and the study of global nationalisms and empire. Our recently redesigned major in English includes courses in identity and difference, revolutions and rebellions, and cultural studies; the new hire will have the opportunity to design course content in these areas and others, and to shape curricular development in the major.

 

The new hire will be expected to teach 24 credits each year, typically divided into three courses per semester. The course load will be evenly split between English and Academic Writing. The successful candidate must show promise of scholarly achievement and a commitment to teaching at the undergraduate level both in literature and academic writing. Teaching responsibilities in English will include courses at all levels.

 

Applicants should apply online at The University of Tampa website: (https://utampa.wd1.myworkdayjobs.com/Faculty) and be prepared to attach a cover letter, CV, and a writing sample of no more than 25 pages.

 

A Ph.D. will be required by the time of appointment. Review of applications will begin on November 20.
