The English Department does not currently have full time positions open at this time; however, there are possibilities for temporary/part-time personnel based on need each semester.


The English Department Personnel Committee has created a rubric to evaluate each candidate. Based on the criteria in the rubric, the members of the PC request that each first-time or returning candidate includes the following documents in their applications for temporary/part-time positions:

First-Time Candidates

  • a transcript of the most recent coursework and degree the applicant has completed (and any coursework and degree in progress)
  • Two recent letters of recommendation from a faculty member and/or a course supervisor (i.e. a Course Coordinator, University Teaching Development instructor, etc.)
  • Student evaluation results for at least two recent semesters

Returning Candidates

  • a cover letter
  • updated curriculum vitae
  • student evaluations for the two most recent semesters available
  • a revised transcript reflecting any recent coursework (if applicable)

All documents must be directed to the Director of the English Department ( and must be sent electronically, mailed, or delivered by hand to the English Department. Incomplete application packages will not be considered.
