When is the deadline to apply?
Applications for lectureships must be received by January 9, 2018.
How do I apply?
Lecturer applications—including cover letter, c.v., names of recommenders, and writing sample—must be submitted online. For technical difficulties and questions, contact HR support. Candidates who advance to the interview stage will be asked to submit letters of recommendation on short notice. Please notify your recommenders and be prepared to send the letters through Interfolio or other means.
What are the eligibility requirements?
Lecturers must have defended and deposited the dissertation and completed all requirements for the Ph.D. by the start date of July 1.
How are full-time and half-time positions determined?
Hiring decisions in History & Literature are largely determined by student need, and that applies to full-time appointments as well. You need not specify full-time or half-time in your application, since all applicants will be considered for both appointment types.
What is the compensation?
Half-time salaries are pro-rated based on a full-time equivalent (FTE) set by the university. Last year’s starting salary for full-time Lecturers in History & Literature was $54,100. Most half-time and full-time appointments in History & Literature include health insurance and other benefits.
What is the teaching load?
All appointments are for the full year; History & Literature does not hire for a single semester. Lecturers generally work with the same students throughout the academic year. Half-time appointments in History & Literature sometimes include a combination of Junior and Senior Tutorials, about five students in total. A full-time teaching assignment might include teaching a Sophomore Tutorial, Junior Tutorial, Senior Tutorial, and a HL90 Seminar.
Skype interviews with lecturer candidates will be conducted in February and March, and hiring decisions will be made in April.
