         Subject: tenure-track job at Saskatchewan (Canada)

The Department of English at the University of Saskatchewan invites
applications for a tenure-track position in the Technologies of
Communication at the rank of Assistant Professor, effective July 1,
2007. The successful candidate will have expertise in at least two of
the following: history (of print culture, of literary history and the
book, of readers and markets, etc.), theory/culture (cultural
studies, the politics of print, media studies, etc.), or application
(textual scholarship, humanities computing, electronic research
methods, digital editions, etc.). The successful candidate will be
expected to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in the
Technologies of Communication, as well as more traditional literary
material. A Ph.D. in English and significant evidence of achievement
in research and teaching are required.

Besides its commitment to traditional literary historical periods and
national literatures, the Department of English has particular
teaching and research interests in the histories of orality and
textuality; editorial practice; textual constructions of health,
illness and the body; gender and sexuality theory; and Aboriginal and
Postcolonial studies. The department is home to the journal Essays on
Canadian Writing, the Eighteenth-Century Studies Research Unit, the
Humanities Research Unit, and ETRUS (Electronic Text Research at the
University of Saskatchewan), and contributes to an interdisciplinary
program in Classical, Medieval and Renaissance Studies. Successful
candidates will be afforded opportunities to participate in these and
other initiatives. We are especially interested in receiving
applications from candidates who will be involved in innovative
research and in reshaping our curriculum as the discipline embraces
emerging areas, including Race Studies, Gay and Lesbian/Bisexual
Studies, and Cultural Studies.

Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, transcripts, a writing
sample, and evidence of teaching success (including a teaching
dossier if available), and should ask three referees to write
directly to Professor D.J. Thorpe, Head, Department of English,
University of Saskatchewan, 9 Campus Drive, Saskatoon, SK, S7N 5A5.
Applicants are encouraged to consult www.usask.ca/english for
additional information about the department and to get in touch with
the department head (doug.thorpe_at_usask.ca) before submitting an
application. Formal review of applications will begin November 10,
2006 and will continue until the positions are filled.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadian
and permanent residents will be given priority. In accordance with
the University's Employment Equity Policy, the department welcomes
applications from all qualified candidates. Women, people of
aboriginal descent, members of visible minorities, and people with
disabilities are invited to identify themselves as members of these
designated groups on their applications. We also welcome applicants
to submit pertinent information regarding non-traditional forms of
knowledge and alternate career paths.
