How to Apply
The mission of the University of Michigan is to serve the people of Michigan and the world through preeminence in creating, communicating, preserving and applying knowledge, art, and academic values, and in developing leaders and citizens who will challenge the present and enrich the future.
The candidate must hold a PhD in English or Creative Writing, MFA in Creative Writing, or a terminal advanced degree in a closely related field. The candidate must have demonstrated excellence in the college-level teaching of fiction.
Candidates should be emerging writers (one book published or under contract; candidates may also have a second book under contract) who have achieved distinction in their writing and excellence in their teaching and commitment to diversity in the academy, or show the promise of such distinction and excellence. We are particularly interested in writers with a proven interest in bringing to their teaching, mentoring, and writing critical perspectives reflecting the experiences of groups who have been historically underrepresented or marginalized in higher education.
This position is covered under the collective bargaining agreement between the U-M and the Lecturers Employee Organization, AFL-CIO, which contains and settles all matters with respect to wages, benefits, hours and other terms and conditions of employment.
The University of Michigan conducts background checks on all job candidates upon acceptance of a contingent offer and may use a third party administrator to conduct background checks. Background checks are performed in compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
