Tenure Track Position: Canadian, Indigenous and World Literatures

Department of English and Cultural Studies

Huron is unique to post-secondary institutions in Canada. With the aim to redefine Liberal Arts education, Huron is creating a university experience unlike any other that prioritizes ethical leadership and community engagement, as much as the pursuit of academic achievement.

As the founding institution of Western University, since 1863, Huron has remained strategically small to best serve the needs of its students. We provide an elite, yet accessible, education, because every student with the passion and work ethic to positively change our world deserves to access the knowledge to understand it and the skills to shape it. Huron’s mission is to develop Leaders with Heart from all backgrounds and foster a vibrant and inclusive community and prepare students to be engaged citizens who transform the sectors they work within. Our commitment to providing the best-possible Liberal Arts education means students have many unique opportunities to enrich their learning experiences.


The Department of English and Cultural Studies invites applications for a tenure track position at the rank of Assistant Professor with specialization in at least two of Canadian Literatures, Indigenous Literatures, or World Literatures. The successful candidate will be expected to have an active and ongoing research agenda and to teach courses in the areas listed as well as develop new courses in their areas of specialty. Further, the candidate may be asked to teach introductory courses, genre based courses, or experience based courses.  


Preferred qualifications include a completed PhD, an interest in community-based research and teaching, expertise in the field(s) covered by the course(s), and experience teaching at the postsecondary level.
