Subject: University of Saskatchewan Job Posting
The Department of English at the University of Saskatchewan invites
applications for a tenure-track position in Renaissance/Early Modern
Studies at the rank of Assistant Professor to begin July 1, 2002. We
are particularly seeking candidates with expertise in one or more of the
following perspectives: cultural studies, the history of the book,
critical racial theory, and queer theory. The University of
Saskatchewan is committed to the principles of Employment Equity and
welcomes diversity in the workplace. Aboriginal peoples, persons with
disabilities, women, and members of racial minorities are encouraged to
apply and are invited to identify themselves as members of these
designated groups on their applications. The PhD is required, and some
teaching experience is an asset. Evidence of scholarly achievement and
promise is a major consideration. Candidates should be prepared to
offer a variety of undergraduate courses (including Shakespeare) and
seminars at the honours and graduate level, and, eventually to supervise
MA and PhD theses. The teaching load is 15 credit units (2.5 classes)
per year with some reduction in the first year. The successful
candidate will be expected to enrich teaching and scholarship in newly
developing fields of knowledge as well as in traditional disciplines
related to Early Modern Studies. There will be opportunities to
contribute to the newly formed interdisciplinary Classical, Medieval,
and Renaissance Studies Program.
Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, and transcripts, and should
ask three referees to write directly to Professor William W.E. Slights,
Acting Head, Department of English, University of Saskatchewan, 9 Campus
Drive, Saskatoon, SK, S7N 5A5 no later than November 15, 2001.
Applicants are invited to consult www.usask.ca/english for additional
information about this appointment, the Department, and the University.
This position has been cleared for advertising at the tier-2 level.
Applications are invited from qualified individuals, regardless of their
immigration status, though Canadian citizens and permanent residents of
Canada will receive first consideration.
