The Department of English and Comparative Literary Studies at the University of Warwick intends to appoint an Assistant Professor in Black Studies. The appointment will commence on 1 September 2023.

We seek an outstanding scholar who specialises in Black Studies. Applicants may work on any combination of periods, regions, genres, forms and media. We especially encourage applications from scholars who approach Black studies from a comparative and interdisciplinary perspective and situate it in a global frame. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, literatures and cultures of Africa and the African diaspora, feminist and queer studies, Black environments, internationalism and decolonization, and Black historiography in literature and culture.

You will possess a PhD or equivalent; will have an emergent or already established international reputation within the field of study; and will have relevant teaching experience. You will also demonstrate a commitment to teaching excellence and will join a teaching team with strengths in innovative teaching methods, including open-space learning and practical workshops, as well as more traditional lectures and seminars. Alongside core modules on the BA degree, you will develop new research-led modules at BA and MA level; and will supervise PhD research. You will join a vibrant research environment, in the Department and the Faculty of Arts, and will foster research connections and collaborations with colleagues, especially in relation to the development of Black Studies.

The department values diversity, challenges discrimination, and promotes equality. We are committed to strengthening our equality and diversity agenda both in relation to our community (students and staff), our teaching, research, and our curricula. Applications are encouraged from under-represented groups, including people who identify as Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic, women, members of the LGBTQIUA+ communities, people with disabilities, and those from economically disadvantaged backgrounds. We also strongly encourage those who have studied or worked at post-92 institutions.

Selection Process
Shortlisted candidates will give presentations and be interviewed on week commencing 8 May 2023. Presentations and interviews will be in person unless circumstances warrant otherwise. Long-listed candidates will be asked to send a writing sample of 6000-8000 words. For informal inquiries about the post, please contact Dr Rashmi Varma (Rashmi.Varma@warwick.ac.uk).
