Academic Jobs Wiki

Wiki page for Academic Jobs in Early Modern / Renaissance Literature advertised during the 2021-2022 hiring season. This page is for jobs that begin in 2022.


Please add jobs in the following format and order them chronologically by posting date (newest postings at the top).

TT/NT: Tenure-track or Non-tenure track.

For the sake of user-friendliness, please do not add more detailed content of the job ad on this page.

Jobs with 2022 Application Deadlines[]

Word on the Street[]

RE: Mary Baldwin associate/full

  • Is this a case where they’re actually recruiting? That is, is it worth applying if you haven’t been invited to apply?

RE: Trinity position

  • Can someone confirm this job actually exists / how they know it exists? Can't locate posting... [Yes--call for application circulated via email by department chair with one week between call and application deadline....]
  • Why is this even listed here? This is clearly not a genuine search. There is an early modernist VAP there at the moment so clearly the job is already in their pocket--otherwise why a one-week difference between the "official" call for applications and the deadline? Ridiculous. It's totally insulting that someone keeps posting this fake listing to the Wiki, frankly.
  • Note that TPII observes inside candidates not getting the post more often than not, FWIW:
  • Where I work being the inside candidate almost always works against you--it's a little like the Price Is Right where you can have the perfectly good colleague in front of you, or go for what's behind door number 3 !
  • Heard thru the grapevine Trinity already did interviews and offers, so, it does seem like an inside candidate
  • Update: job went to an outside candidate as of early Jan
