JOB DESCRIPTION

APPLY
The University of Chicago Program in Creative Writing invites applications for a three year full-time appointment as Lecturer in Fiction Writing. The standard minimum teaching load of full-time lecturers in the College is the equivalent of six courses. Depending on the needs of the Creative Writing Program, this teaching load may be configured as five courses plus thesis advising. Lecturers will also play an active role in our robust reading series and have a voice in curricular development as we grow our academic degree offerings.

We look for a record of significant fiction publication, at least one book on a significant publisher's list or equivalent, and applicants should show evidence of talent and commitment in teaching. An additional interest in teaching non-fiction would be an advantage. An MFA, or equivalent professional experience is necessary. The position is contingent upon final budgetary approval and is renewable based upon satisfactory review. The starting salary for this position is $45,000 for appointees with a terminal degree.

To apply for this position you must submit your application through the University of Chicago Academic Career Opportunities website, https://academiccareers.uchicago.edu , select requisition # 03088 and upload a cover letter, curriculum vitae, reference contact information, and a 20?30 page writing sample.
