FACULTY VACANCY ANNOUNCEMENT

Queens College is an urban school with a faculty and student body that reflects the diversity of New York City. We take pride in our pluralistic community and continue to seek excellence through diversity and inclusion. With a commitment to an increasingly global society, Queens College offers a rigorous education in the liberal arts and sciences under the guidance of a faculty dedicated to both teaching and research. The College's liberal arts, science, and pre-professional programs have earned it high rankings in college guides such as “The Princeton Review America's Best Value Colleges;” the College's graduates have won prominence in nearly every field.

The Queens College English Department teaches a wide range of undergraduate courses to over four thousand students, including over six hundred English majors. Its MA program serves over one hundred MS Ed and literature students, and its MFA program in Creative Writing and Translation attracts a select group of students from across the US. The forty full-time faculty teach and publish in both traditional and emerging areas within the profession; recent hires include specialists in composition studies, multilingual education, drama, creative nonfiction, modernist, Latinx, and Caribbean literatures and cultures. Nine English Department faculty also teach in the consortial PhD programs at the CUNY Graduate Center.

In support of the campus mission, strategic plans and values, the English Department seeks to fill one tenure-track Assistant Professor Vacancy in Early Modern Studies.

The selected candidate will also share departmental committee responsibilities and take on other administrative duties if needed.

All candidates with publication and teaching expertise in Early Modern Studies will be considered, and applications will be assessed in relation to career stage.
