English Faculty - 2013-2014 Academic Year
Bard High School Early College, a partnership of Bard College and the New York City Department of Education, invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in the Department of English for the 2013-2014 academic year. BHSEC, a national model in the field of public school reform, enables talented and highly motivated students to move in four years from the ninth grade through the first two years of college, earning an associate of arts (A.A.) degree from Bard College as well as a New York State Regents diploma. The academic program emphasizes small class size and a commitment to teaching a diverse student body in a liberal arts environment.
The position calls for teaching ninth grade Literature of the Americas or tenth grade World Literature, as well as college electives in the applicant’s field of expertise. Applications in ethnic literatures, British literature, media studies, and American studies are especially welcome. In addition, candidates will be expected to participate fully in the life of the school.
Preference will be given to candidates with teaching experience and to those whose training and research are interdisciplinary and cross-cultural. A Ph.D. is preferred; qualified candidates with a master’s degree who have exceptional teaching credentials will also be considered. New York State teaching certification is an asset; otherwise, assistance in securing certification will be provided to the successful candidate.
The position offers the opportunity to work in a school that is an innovative model in secondary and post-secondary education as a member of a dedicated faculty, most of whom hold doctorates in their fields. Qualified and interested applicants should send a letter of interest (including a description of courses you propose to teach), curriculum vitae and teaching portfolio (including evaluations and teaching philosophy) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name and “Music Position” in the subject line of the email. Your references should follow the same e-mail protocol. Application materials should be addressed to:
