The English Department at Stony Brook hopes to search for a tenure-track assistant professor in Victorian studies. This scholar will have particular expertise in literature in English of the British Empire, including regions where the Empire held sway, such as India, Africa, the Caribbean, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada. This search is subject to budgetary approval, but we invite inquiries now.
The Ph.D. must be in or at hand September 1, 2012. The successful candidate would join a department in which research and teaching are innovative and interdisciplinary. Our faculty and graduate students work closely with Comparative Literature and Cultural Studies, Women's Studies, Africana Studies, Philosophy, History, Art History, and other departments and programs.
Please have interested scholars send letters of inquiry, CV, letters of recommendation, and a writing sample by December 14, by email if possible (email@example.com).
