Assistant Professor of Early Modern British Literature / Shakespeare

he Department of English at SUNY-Binghamton invites applications for a tenure track position at the assistant professor level in early modern British literature, including Shakespeare.

Competitive applicants will show significant evidence of both scholarly promise and teaching excellence, and demonstrate expertise in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century British literature, along with an ability to teach Shakespeare. We are open to work in any sub-specialty, including, but not limited to, work in race and colonialism; performance studies; material history; book history; disability studies; ecocriticism and environmental studies; global early modernity; and gender and sexuality studies. We are particularly interested in candidates whose scholarship embraces interdisciplinary approaches; whose pedagogy promotes student engagement and supports a vibrant MA/PhD program; and who would welcome the opportunity to participate in the interdisciplinary life of the University and work collaboratively with their colleagues in English as well as in other departments and programs, including the university's robust Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies. Faculty are expected to have an active research agenda, and to publish a scholarly monograph before tenure. The successful candidate will teach a 2-2 load comprised of undergraduate and graduate courses in their area of expertise and ENGL 345, the department's core Shakespeare course, with some pre-tenure teaching release available. Candidates should have a PhD in English or a related discipline in hand by the time of appointment. Finally, the department is committed to equity and inclusion and is actively working to increase diversity amongst its faculty. Members of groups historically underrepresented in the field and those from non-traditional backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply. Additionally, evidence of a commitment to advancing equity and inclusion through research, teaching, and/or service will be valued.
Doctoral degree required by time of appointment.  Candidates must be prepared to teach their specialization at the graduate and undergraduate levels and to contribute to the research mission of the department and university.
