The Department of English invites applications for a tenure-track position in Creative Writing at the rank of Assistant Professor beginning July 1, 2014. The position will contribute to both the English Literature and the Rhetoric and Media Studies streams at the undergraduate level as well as the interdisciplinary M.A. in the Humanities. The successful candidate will be expected to develop new courses in Creative Writing, broadly conceived as including creative work in diverse modes and media (e.g. written, oral, performative, and/or dramatic texts; visual, electronic, and/or mixed media). There will be a significant opportunity to integrate classroom learning with real-world experience, for example, through projects and placements in Aboriginal communities. The Department of English has a history of partnerships with various Aboriginal organizations including the Debajehmujig Theatre Group, the Weengushk Film Institute and the Indigenous Health Research Development Program, and the successful candidate will continue to develop these relationships. Applicants must have a completed MFA or Ph.D., be near to its completion, or have equivalent experience or qualifications, with demonstrated research/creative productivity and teaching experience.
Candidates should submit a statement of current and prospective research/creative endeavours, a teaching dossier, a curriculum vitae, and three letters of reference to firstname.lastname@example.org.
