Overview

The Department of English Language and Literature at Christendom College seeks a full-time faculty appointment to begin August 15, 2022. This is an entry-level position. Salary is commensurate with experience.

The area of specialization is open but must be for the Renaissance period or later. The successful candidate will have a 4/4 load and must be able to teach all of the literature courses in our core curriculum as well as a significant number of our upper-division offerings, particularly Literary Criticism and Poetry and Poetics. Applicants are therefore encouraged to check the Christendom College Bulletin and review the classes offered by our department. A Ph.D. and teaching experience are preferred, but the department will consider especially well-qualified ABD candidates.
