Assistant Professor in Latinx Literature

The Department of English at Rutgers (New Brunswick) seeks a tenure-track assistant professor in Latinx Literature. We welcome applications from scholars working in all periods and genres of Latinx literature; the ability to teach and mentor students across a range of historical periods is particularly desirable. Successful candidates must have the Ph.D. in hand (in English or a related field) by Fall 2023 and be ready to take on duties including undergraduate and graduate teaching and research. Rutgers English is home to a top-tier graduate program and a large and dynamic undergraduate major; our faculty and student population reflects the rich diversity of New Jersey.

The assistant professor will be based in the English Department but will also benefit from interaction with colleagues working in the Department of Latino and Caribbean Studies, the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, the Department of American Studies, and our thriving Rutgers Advanced Institute for Caribbean Studies (RAICS) and Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS).

Submit application letter, dissertation abstract, curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation (or a dossier), and a writing sample to the attention of Meredith McGill no later than November 1.
