The Creative Writing Program at Purchase College, SUNY, is seeking an Assistant Professor (tenure-track) in fiction writing. Applicants with expertise and interest in a second field (creative non-fiction, poetry, the graphic novel) and an interest in interdisciplinary collaboration are especially welcome to apply. The Creative Writing program offers an undergraduate major. Teaching responsibilities include beginning and advanced courses in the major and a general education course. A senior project is a college-wide requirement and signature feature of the Purchase curriculum. Therefore, potential for publishing high quality work and a passion for working closely with students on their writing are essential.
Purchase College is an undergraduate institution located 25 miles north of New York City. Because it houses a unique combination of Liberal Arts and Sciences majors and Arts Conservatory programs, our faculty and staff are committed to inspiring an appreciation for both intellectual and artistic talent in all students. Purchase is ranked by US News in the Top 10 public US liberal arts colleges and is among the Best 376 Colleges by Princeton Review.
Successful candidates are required to possess a terminal degree in Creative Writing, with an emphasis on fiction. Candidates are required to have teaching experience and potential for publishing high quality work, and contribute to general education.
Candidates are required to complete an online application and attach a CV, cover letter, statements of interests and teaching philosophy (attach as one document under Teaching Philosophy) and representative publications (attach as 'Other Document 1'). In addition, applicants are required to identify three (3) references who can be contacted via email for a letter of recommendation.
Salary is commensurate with experience and qualifications.
Women and minorities are encouraged to apply. Purchase College is an AA/EEO employer.
