Teaching Opportunities: Full-time Lecturers

A limited number of full-time renewable lectureships for writing in the disciplines are offered each year. Applications are welcomed from Ph.Ds. with a strong interest in writing. Scholars from the natural and social sciences are particularly encouraged to apply. All faculty are provided with extensive training and support, so teaching experience, while desirable, is not necessary. Lecturers teach 3 seminars per semester capped at 16 students.

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis beginning February 15 and continue until all positions are filled.

Applicants should submit the following:

  1. A letter broadly outlining your qualifications and interest
  2. Your current CV or resume
  3. A proposed course description, focused on your topic, and modeled after those offered by our program. Please include two scholarly monographs focused on your topic, ideally 250 pages or fewer, that you might use as the basis for organizing your course.
  4. Three letters of reference. Candidates should provide names and contact information of the three referees using the application site. Referees will receive an e-mail providing them with a link for submitting their letter.
  5. Evidence of your accomplishments as a writer or scholar (writing sample)
  6. If applicable, evidence of your accomplishments as a teacher (e.g., teaching evaluations, awards)

All application materials should be submitted online through the Penn Faculty Searches site using the following link: https://facultysearches.provost.upenn.edu/postings/1055.
