Senior Tenured Position in Writing Studies, Department of English

The Department of English at the University of Delaware invites applications for the position of Associate or Full Professor of Writing Studies. We welcome applications from tenured scholars in any area of writing studies who possess a demonstrated commitment to supporting or leading new or existing writing programs-including our first-year writing program or possible programs in professional and technical writing-building collaborations across disciplines or in the private sector, and mentoring diverse students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. We are especially interested in professional and technical writing scholars and teachers. The successful candidate will be prepared to contribute to the department's record of leadership in scholarship, teaching, and service, and will share the department's commitment to developing and supporting curricular, student, and faculty diversity.

The Department of English (www.english.udel.edu) is deeply committed to social justice in our teaching, scholarship, and community-engagement work, and we are dedicated to creating and sustaining a department community founded on the principles and practice of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Our community includes some of the top scholars and educators of a broad range of fields, including African American Studies, literary and cultural studies, English Education, film, creative writing, environmental humanities, print and material culture studies, professional and technical writing, and rhetoric and composition. Our department includes a partnership with UD's Library, Museums, and Press that focuses on Black archives and community engagement, and we are one of four departments that support the African American Public Humanities Initiative for graduate students. The successful candidate will join an intellectual community determined to lead the way in re-energizing and redefining the integrated arts of critical research and writing across the spectrum of print and digital media. We seek applicants capable of engaging with our students, and of contributing to our community, with expertise, imagination, and passion. In addition to working with outstanding scholar-educators in the department, English Department faculty benefit from our strong affiliations with and leadership roles in interdisciplinary studies programs on campus, organizations associated with UD faculty (including the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, the Winterthur Museum, the Folger Library, the Hagley Museum, and The Library Company of Philadelphia), and numerous other archives and resources in the region.
