Open Position: Continuing-Track Assistant Professor of English

The Associate in Arts Program (AAP) at the University of Delaware seeks to hire a continuing track faculty member in English with a specialization in Composition and Rhetoric at the rank of Assistant Professor. The successful candidate will demonstrate a strong ability to teach a diverse set of students in active learning environments, leverage technology to support student learning, collaborate with teams of instructors to improve teaching, and encourage members of historically underrepresented groups to achieve their fullest potential in the field.

The AAP, with campuses in Wilmington, Dover, and Georgetown, is an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary associate degree program that includes coursework in humanities, history, social and behavioral sciences, mathematics, natural sciences, and languages. AAP students constitute a racially, socioeconomically diverse body of learners, the majority of whom go on to pursue majors in all seven colleges on the University of Delaware’s main campus. AAP students enjoy an uninterrupted transition from the AAP to a bachelor’s degree program in the junior year. Faculty who teach in the AAP commit a majority of their time and effort to preparing students at the highest level to succeed in their transition to bachelor’s degree programs or to the workforce. Other responsibilities include student advising and university service. Continuing track faculty have opportunities to pursue research, are eligible for promotion and sabbaticals, and receive full and generous benefits as part of their compensation package.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. in English with a specialization in Composition and Rhetoric or a similar specialization. The successful candidate will primarily teach first-year composition and sophomore-level English courses in Dover, with opportunities to teach in Georgetown, and may expect to begin the position in the 2018 fall semester.

To apply, the following materials must be submitted: a cover sheet, a detailed letter of interest, a curriculum vitae, three letters of recommendation, and a statement of teaching philosophy (maximum of two pages) addressing the job qualifications described in the first paragraph.

Review of applications will begin on December 1, 2017. The committee will then choose candidates for preliminary interviews, which will be conducted through video calls and at the Modern Language Association convention in January of 2018. For further information, contact search committee chair Prof. James Keegan at
