The University of Mary is seeking qualified candidates for a full-time position at the Assistant (possibly Associate) professor level in the Department of Language and Literature. While we seek a "generalist," who can teach a variety of composition and literature courses, the ideal candidate will have both credentials and teaching experience in the area of English Language and Linguistics.
Qualifications: a Ph.D. in English required (ABD considered if Ph.D. is completed prior to employment). All potential candidates must be enthusiastic for teaching and advising, and must demonstrate a willingness to support the Christian, Catholic, Benedictine mission of the University of Mary.
