Posted July 25, 2018 11:07:16As part of its plan to attract and retain top talent, Harvard is opening a series of “vacancies” in the fields of education and leadership.
On Wednesday, the university said it is opening two openings in each of its departments and disciplines.
The Harvard University Graduate School of Education is opening an entry-level assistant professor in the Department of English and Creative Writing.
The Graduate School’s Office of Career Development and Research is offering an entry level assistant professor for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
The program director for the Graduate School, Jennifer Fisk, said she is excited about the opportunity to bring these talented professionals to the campus.
The first of these openings is a new assistant professor position in the department of English at the School of Arts and Letters.
Fisk said the position will allow the graduate students to expand their understanding of English as a second language and will help students get an even better understanding of the diversity of perspectives within the humanities.
This is a fantastic opportunity for us to help students, especially the underrepresented minority students who are often marginalized by the institutions that they’re coming from, Fisk told CBS News.
The other opening is a full-time assistant professor at the College in the Arts and Humanities.
Fink said that assistant professor will serve as the undergraduate coordinator for the program, helping the graduate and undergraduate students integrate into the academic environment.
This will be a great opportunity for students to work on their thesis, Fink told CBS.
Students who want to work in the graduate programs will also have the opportunity of applying to the positions in the School for the Advancement of Women in Science and Engineering, the School’s Women’s Studies program, and the Graduate Studies Program.
The graduate program will begin accepting applications for the Assistant Professor in English and the Associate Professor in Creative Writing this fall.
