FACULTY VACANCY ANNOUNCEMENT

In support of the campus mission, strategic plans and values, the Queens College English Department invites applications for four full-time lecturers to begin in Fall 2023. The positions represent an investment by the College to increase student contact with full-time faculty during students’ crucial first year. Lecturers will teach classes in the department’s First Year Writing program, as well as General Education literature and/or upper-division writing classes. The people in this position will join an engaged community of writing teachers and scholars who are committed to supporting Queens College students.

We seek dynamic educators who will contribute to the life of the department and take an active role in shaping the future of its First Year Writing and General Education offerings. Our ideal candidates are enthusiastic about teaching and developing first-year writing courses, professionally engaged in the field of composition and writing studies and can contribute to the department’s teaching community, including its new writing minor.

Lecturers occupy faculty lines at the College that are focused primarily on teaching (with some service requirements and the expectation of continued professional development). Lecturer track faculty teach 24 hours per year, and first-year writing classes are 4 hours. After five years, lecturers are eligible for a certificate of continuous employment (CCE), the equivalent of tenure. Lecturers are entitled to all faculty retirement and other fringe benefits, including a sabbatical every seven years.

Queens College is an urban school with a faculty and student body that reflects the diversity of New York City. We take pride in our pluralistic community and continue to seek excellence through diversity and inclusion. With a commitment to an increasingly global society, Queens College offers a rigorous education in the liberal arts and sciences under the guidance of a faculty dedicated to both teaching and research. The College’s liberal arts, science, and pre-professional programs have earned it high rankings in college guides such as “The Princeton Review America’s Best Value Colleges;” the College’s graduates have won prominence in nearly every field
