The Department of Writing & Rhetoric at Colgate University invites applications for an Andrew W. Mellon Post-doctoral Fellowship in Public Address and a related field in Rhetoric, to begin Fall, 2011. We seek a colleague with teaching experience who has completed a PhD in Rhetoric or Communication Studies by the time of the appointment but no earlier than 2007, and who does not currently hold a tenure stream position. We are especially interested in candidates who plan a career in undergraduate teaching and research, and whose scholarly program is focused on public address with the goal of combining practical pedagogies with rhetorical theory and criticism. This is a one-year fellowship; the Fellow's time will be divided between teaching three courses in public speaking/public address and conducting a personal research program in his or her scholarly specialization. The Fellow will be invited to contribute fully to the life of the department. Compensation for 2011-12 is $42,000 plus benefits. Financial support for research and travel will be available, and mentoring will be offered by a senior member of the department.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching philosophy, a statement of research objectives, and three confidential letters of recommendation at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/689. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. Questions about the position should be directed to the chair of the search committee, Kermit E. Campbell (firstname.lastname@example.org). Colgate University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer; women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply. Developing and sustaining a diverse faculty, staff, and student body further the university's educational mission.
