We are actively seeking candidates with a demonstrated commitment to our values, including a dedication to mentor and inspire students from diverse backgrounds, making a profound and lasting impact on their educational journey.

What you’ll bring
Candidates must have experience teaching writing and literature at the undergraduate level. A specialization in Indigenous, diasporic, and/or decolonial literatures is preferred, but scholars in all fields of Anglophone literature and creative writing will be considered. Ability to teach literature from 10th to 17th and 17th to early 20th centuries is also an asset. Minimum requirement is a Master’s degree and a PhD in English (or closely related field) in-hand, or near-completion at the time of application, is preferred.

The English Department at CapU is committed to diversifying and supporting our teaching faculty. Letters of application should address the candidate’s philosophy of undergraduate teaching as well as their ability to foster an equitable and inclusive community within the University. Please also indicate your availability for Summer 2024 terms 1 (May/June) and 2 (July/August). We actively encourage applications from individuals who identify as racialized, Indigenous, Black, and/or persons of color. We invite candidates to self-identify and be part of our mission to create a truly inclusive educational environment.
