George Fox University announces a tenure-track faculty position in English with an emphasis in Fiction Writing, to begin in August 2018.

George Fox University, a Christ-centered community, prepares students spiritually, academically, and professionally to think with clarity, act with integrity, and serve with passion. Professors teach all truth as God's truth, integrating all fields of learning around the person and work of Jesus Christ, bringing the divine revelations through sense, reason, and intuition to the confirming test of Scripture. As a Christ-centered community, George Fox University is an institution that values diversity as an essential dimension of God's design for human communities. In seeking to become a more inclusive community, we especially encourage applications from women and candidates from racial and ethnic backgrounds that are underrepresented on our faculty.

Responsibilities include:

  • Teaching courses in the major (both writing and literature), including fiction writing.
  • Teaching interdisciplinary courses in the general education program.
  • Developing and/or sustaining an ongoing program of creative writing publication.
  • Participating in the work of the department and the university, including academic advising and serving on university committees.


  • A terminal degree (MFA or PhD) in English, Creative Writing, or related field is required. Applicants who are in the final stages of their degree program will be considered, but must have earned the terminal degree by the time of appointment.
  • Experience in teaching fiction writing is required.
  • A record of publication in fiction writing is required.
  • Ability to teach a range of world literature courses from the ancients through the 19th century is preferred.
  • A commitment to working with a diverse population of students (including students of color, first-generation college students, international students, etc.) is essential; demonstrated experience in this area is preferred.
  • All applicants must express a personal commitment to Jesus Christ and express their Christian testimony through participation in a local church. In addition, professors agree to live in agreement with the Community Lifestyle Statement and affirm the theological commitments expressed in the Statement of Faith.

Salary and Rank

Appointment at the Assistant Professor level is anticipated. Salary and benefits are competitive with comparable institutions.
