Announcement of Regional Search for Visiting Assistant Professorship in
English and the University of Connecticut, Torrington Campus
The English Department at the University of Connecticut seeks qualified
candidates for a one-year, non-renewable faculty appointment to begin in
September of 1998. Duties will include a course load of three
undergraduate courses each semester in addition to some advisory work.
We are seeking a generalist with scholarly promise and expertise in at
least one field of British or American literature.
Applicants should have doctorate in hand and demonstrated competence to
teach a variety of courses, including introductory offerings, period
surveys, and composition. Thus, evidence of versatility and record of
effective teaching in a range of undergraduate courses are essential for
this appointment. The Torrington Regional Campus is a small commuter
campus serving many non-traditional students.
Send letter of application, dossier, and writing sample no longer than
15-20 pages to Professor Robert Hasenfratz, Search Committee Chair,
Department of English U-25, University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT 06269.
All application materials should arrive by May 10, 1998, at the very
latest. Given the shortness of time, we will consider applicants mainly
from New England and surrounding areas. It is essential that candidates
live close enough to Connecticut to travel to Torrington for an
interview, as we cannot reimburse for travel costs.
If you have any questions, please contact R. Hasenfratz (until 6 May 98)
In keeping with our commitment to build a culturally diverse staff, the
University of Connecticut invites applications from women, people with
disabilities, and members of minority groups. We would be pleased to
receive nominations for any of these positions.
