British Romanticism

The Department of English in the College of Arts & Science, University of Saskatchewan, invites applications for a tenure-track appointment in British Romanticism and the literature of the late-eighteenth and early-nineteenth centuries, at the Assistant Professor level, to begin July 1, 2023.

The successful candidate will have a record of research success in the literature of British Romanticism and the late-eighteenth and early-nineteenth centuries and a well-developed, ongoing research program. Decolonizing approaches are highly desirable, and specialization in additional areas of our programming, such as Digital and Media Studies or Creative Writing, would be an asset. The successful candidate will contribute to all areas of our graduate and undergraduate programming, teach undergraduate and graduate courses in the period as well as introductory literature and composition courses, and participate in the administrative work of the Department, College, and University.

The Department of English is strongly committed to research activity and to teaching excellence at both graduate and undergraduate levels. The Department’s nineteen permanent faculty members provide education in literatures from a variety of historical periods and geographical locations. Areas of concentration include Indigenous Literatures, Digital Studies, Modernist Studies, Canadian Literatures, and Cultural Studies.

The College of Arts and Science offers a dynamic combination of programs in the humanities, fine arts, social sciences, and natural sciences. There are approximately 9,000 undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in the College, and 296 faculty members, including 10 Canada Research Chairs. The College emphasizes student and faculty research, interdisciplinary programs, community outreach, and international opportunities.

The University of Saskatchewan, situated in Treaty 6 territory and the Métis homeland, is located in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, a city with a diverse and thriving economic base, a vibrant arts community, and a full range of leisure opportunities. The University has a reputation for excellence in teaching, research, and scholarly and artistic work, and offers a full range of undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs to a student population of over 25,000.


The completion or near completion of a PhD is required, as is demonstrated ability in teaching, research, and publication. A record of successful teaching and mentoring of Indigenous students will be considered an asset. In accordance with Department, College, and University commitments to increasing Indigenous participation in all aspects and levels of activities, Indigenous applicants are particularly encouraged to apply.
