The Department of Spanish and Portuguese Studies at the University of Florida, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences invites applications for a full time, nine-month, tenure-track position in Spanish-American literature at the level of Assistant Professor with a core specialization in Colonial Studies but also with links to the modern literatures and cultures of Latin America and/or Spain beginning August 16, 2019. We envision this position focused on colonial literature/culture with extension into geographies, periods, and/or theoretical disciplines not covered by our research faculty. Colonial incursions into the contemporary literatures/cultures of Central and South America (excluding the Southern Cone) are highly desirable.
Ph. D. in hand in Hispanic literatures or a closely-related field is required by August 15, 2019. Advanced junior candidates should have a publication record commensurate with their seniority level. Salary is competitive, commensurate with qualifications and experience, and includes a full benefits package.
