Miami University (Oxford, Ohio, USA) - English (African American literature; African American and/or Latino/a/x rhetoric; poetry; or linguistics with a specialty in African American, and/or Latinx discourse and/or dialect.), Heanon Wilkins Fellowship, VAP with encouragement towards TT - (Listed March 2022 with search ongoing) https://jobs.miamioh.edu/cw/en-us/job/499947/heanon-wilkins-faculty-fellowsvisiting-assistant-professor-or-instructor

Miami University’s Heanon Wilkins Fellows program recruits annual cohorts of up to ten (10) scholars with a strong interest in pursuing a career as a faculty member, pairing them with dedicated mentoring and intentional preparation for a career in higher education, ideally as a tenure-eligible faculty member at Miami University. This program is named after Dr. Heanon Wilkins, Miami University's first full-time African-American faculty member. A distinguished professor of Spanish, Portuguese, and Black World Studies, Dr. Wilkins is an enduring and inspirational example of Miami’s teacher-scholar faculty, having received Miami's highest honors in teaching, research, and service. Honoring his impressive legacy, we hope to recruit cohorts of excellent future faculty to Miami through this program. Each academic year, we publish a call for Fellows applicants whose area(s) of expertise align with areas of expected need in the next two years. While we cannot guarantee tenure eligible positions for all Fellows, Fellows have been successful in securing tenure eligible positions at Miami in the past. The Fellowship is for a minimum of one full academic year (9-month faculty appointment) with a strong possibility of reappointment. Heanon Wilkins Fellows have reduced teaching responsibilities in order to foster a vibrant research program, engage in mentoring and career development, and the opportunity to engage with highly accomplished teacher-scholar faculty colleagues and Miami’s impressive students. The Fellows program is designed to prepare individuals to be highly competitive in future faculty searches (tenure track or teaching/clinical professor or lecturer (TCPL) positions), especially those we anticipate at Miami University.
