NOTES:

  • Does anyone know whether this search is likely to be an inside hire? I have heard that the position is highly likely to go to Sarah Braunstein, who is a Visiting Assistant Professor at Colby currently. I am not writing to be critical of that possibility. From what I have heard, Sarah Braunstein is a superb writer and teacher. I am just looking for information that might help prioritize energy on positions for which it is a truly open search. What I heard might be a rumor.
  • It's either going to her or Newman from Seinfeld, or so I've been told. Or a chicken named bogus. Or one and a half Twinkies. Or a pocket of acorns and a statue of Lenin. Or four moth balls and a bumper sticker that says Syracuse. For what it's worth.
  • Fuck, I'm gonna kill Newman. <3

  • Heads up everyone. You're going to be on dining duty if you get this job! Have fun w/ that.
  • This feels a bit much to ask for first-round consideration: "outlines for two potential courses team-taught with faculty outside your discipline." Why not ask finalists to bring that to the campus visit? 
  • Is the first comment above coming from a former employee? Or is my snark-detector just malfunctioning? Clarification, please!
  • I don't work there. And yeah, I'm absolutely being snarky but this is also for real. I was looking for info on benefits (retirement/health insurance/etc) and I found dining duty. It's only once per year, but . . . basically, if you don't get the call for this job, celebrate that you're not wiping down the cafeteria.
  • faculty from Marlboro here (unrelated to the search). Just thought I'd defend the institution a bit by noting that we get all our meals for free at the dining hall, and the yearly cleanup duty is a kind of homage to the community rather than some kind of a job performance expectation. We also do menial tasks once a semester as part of Work Day, improving on the campus by clearing branches for trails, painting etc.. Just FYI.

  • Q: Innovative fiction is ... what? It reminds me of Starbucks. "No, but we call it a grande." Can't we just be fiction writers and leave the labeling to someone else?
  • A: Innovative. You know. LIke man-buns and McSweeney's. Totally unique and unlike anything else everyone else is doing, which is what everyone is doing. Hope it helps!
  • A. Look at their writing faculty--lots of cross-genre and hybrid-genre work. I saw Anna Joy Springer do an AWP talk where she read from a work written partly in rebus. (It was cool.) I think the "innovative" label (I agree, it's a little confusing) is meant to signal the department's experimental sensiblity. 
  • Q: How many great fiction writers do you know who would read this paragraph and still have the stomach to reply? "Contribution to diversity statements could include an attention to diverse learning needs, engaging learning fields of diverse communities, pedagogical methods that address learning needs of students from diverse backgrounds, an awareness of inequities in education and research, a track record of specific activities that address and mitigate inequities, follow-up of positive impact on under-represented students, and a specific plan of activities and follow-up at UCSD."

NOTES:

  • Is $30,000 salary a typo?
  • Not a typo. I had this gig and it was really awesome, except for the measly salary. You CANNOT live in Atlanta on $30,000/year no matter what they tell you and they will tell you that you can. They pay the playwrighting fellow more money but that's because it's a dual-department appointment. $30,000, while not an insult, is not commensurate with the standard of living or the rents in a major city. $60,000 is more like it and even that's a stretch, so if you want this gig, make sure you have a trustfund or a second job. Yeah, it's absurd, but it's the truth. 
  • Thanks for your candor.  Much appreciated!

Princeton University (NJ) - Non-Fiction LectureshipEdit

Council of the Humanities - 21000

Position Summary The Council of the Humanities welcomes proposals from writers and journalists who wish to teach seminars in journalism as Ferris Professors of Journalism and other kinds of non-fiction related to journalism as McGraw Professors of Writing. Both commuting (part-time) and residential (full-time) positions are available.

Applications must be received by October 10, 2016 at 11:59 pm EST, for the fall or spring of the 2017-2018 academic year. The selection committee tries to complete its work by the end of December. We cannot confirm receipt of applications nor can we accept applications after the deadline.

Some writers relocate to Princeton for a semester, taking a leave from daily journalism and using this appointment to teach and also to conduct research, attend lectures, and participate in the University community. These writers in residence are required to spend a significant part of the week on campus. Others commute to campus once a week for the 12 weeks of the term, as well as the week of Reading Period. Applicants residing within a 60-mile radius of Princeton (including New York and Philadelphia) typically are eligible only for a commuting appointment. In 2017-2018 the stipend for commuting appointments will be $36,000, and the stipend for writers in residence will be $90,000 for one semester.

Seminars typically meet once a week for three hours, with enrollment limited to 16 students, chosen by the professor. Students are expected to devote four to six hours a week to class preparation (including reading and writing). They submit assignments every week or two, which are critiqued during individual conferences. Professors often invite guest speakers and arrange a class visit to their newspaper or magazine. In these seminars, we do not seek to duplicate courses in academic departments, but rather to offer the insights and experience that only practicing journalists can provide. The most successful seminars offer frequent, short, hands-on writing and reporting assignments and more writing than reading.

Applicants should submit the following: a résumé showing employment history, recent publications, and the name of a reference we may contact; a proposal for a seminar related to journalism or non-fiction writing; and a cover letter describing your interest in teaching and stating your preference for a residential or commuting appointment. Please also include in your cover letter the URL to a favorite published article you have written. You may also include one URL for an audio or video file. Please send your writing sample as a URL web address whenever possible, although you may upload a document if necessary.

Many courses fit under one of these broad rubrics:

  • Politics and the Media
  • The Literature of Fact
  • Investigative Journalism
  • International News
  • Digital Journalism
  • Documentary Journalism (photo/video)
  • Audio Journalism
  • The Media and Social Issues
  • Writing about (Culture, Film, Science, Law, Medicine, etc.)

Seminar proposals should include:

  • a course description for the catalogue (restricted to 75 words)
  • a paragraph or two about the focus of the course
  • specific topics for each of the twelve weeks
  • a sample reading list of 6-8 titles (articles, websites, chapters, books)
  • possible writing assignments (typically 5-8 short pieces, one of which might be developed into a longer project, submitted during reading period)

This position is subject to the University's background check policy.

Essential Qualifications

  • Candidates should have achieved distinction in journalism and other kinds of writing and be skilled at communicating their experience to students, peers, and members of the community.
  • Must be a practicing journalist-a reporter, editor, producer, journalistic historian, cultural critic, or documentarian.
  • Must have at least 5 years experience working at a news organization (print, radio, television, internet) or writing regularly for major news publications.
  • Must have experience in he year immediately prior to submitting an application.
  • Must not have a tenure-track position at an academic institution.
  • Bachelor's Degree
