The Department of English at Auburn University anticipates making multiple Lecturer appointments for the 2023-2024 academic year, with a starting date of August 16, 2023. These are nine-month, full-time, non-tenurable teaching appointments that may be renewed annually by mutual agreement based on the availability of funds, the need for services, and satisfactory performance. The Department anticipates continuing employment in these positions, with the possibility of promotion to Senior Lecturer.
Lecturers have primary responsibilities in teaching and secondary responsibilities in service and instructional leadership. The expected teaching load is 4/4; assignments typically include a balance of first-year composition with either core literature, junior-level writing (business, technical, medical, or legal), or creative writing, with the Lecturer’s expertise and departmental needs determining the courses taught each semester. Lecturers are normally eligible for summer teaching, if available.
The English Department has particular interest in hiring faculty with skills and experience in working with non-native speakers, in writing studies, and in African American literature and World Literature. We are also particularly interested in candidates who advance our commitment to building a diverse and inclusive educational environment.
