The Department of English at UNLV seeks a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Early Modern Literature with special competence in Shakespeare studies. Teaching responsibilities include undergraduate and graduate courses in area of specialization and other literature courses required for the major. We invite applications from candidates with expertise in any subfield, and we are especially interested in strengths in one or more of the following areas: critical race studies, gender and sexuality, digital humanities, postcolonial studies, and global studies.

The English Department of UNLV houses three journals and a literary review, The Ben Jonson Journal, MELUS, The Popular Culture Review, and Interim. The Department is closely affiliated with the Beverly Rogers, Carol C. Harter Black Mountain Institute (BMI), an international literary center that brings distinguished writers to campus for extended stays, and that publishes The Believer and Witness.

Ranked by U.S. News & World Report as the most ethnically diverse campus in the United States and by the U.S. Department of Education as a Minority Serving Institution (MSI), a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI), and an Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander Serving Institution (AANAPISI), UNLV is continually working to expand the diversity of its faculty. The Department of English is actively committed to promoting equity and diversity, seeking faculty whose teaching, research, writing, and life experiences will help to sustain and extend these core values.

This position requires a Ph.D. in English or a related field by time of appointment from a regionally accredited college or university. Credentials must be obtained prior to the start of employment. Salary competitive with those at similarly situated institutions. Position is contingent upon funding.

Submit a letter of interest, a detailed resume listing qualifications and experience, and the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of at least three professional references who may be contacted. Applicants should fully describe their qualifications and experience, with specific reference to each of the minimum and preferred qualifications because this is the information on which the initial review of materials will be based.

Although this position will remain open until filled, review of candidates’ materials will begin on November 4, 2019, and best consideration will be gained for materials submitted prior to that date.
