The challenges and mission make for an exceedingly meaningful position; the people there are friendly and collegial; and the pay is above many similarly-situated positions. I did not accept the offer due to very bad timing of two people leaving my department at my current institution. This job is worth looking into!

NOTES:

Uh, what? these aren't telephone interviews. Even though it said that on the email, I received a very odd phone call from a woman telling me that these interviews are in person...and they're not paying for it. Forget that.

I received a similar phone call, although I can't say I found it all that odd. It sounds like they are conducting their search on a tight budget, and that they probably employ mostly east-coasters. First round interviews are indeed being held in person and without reimbursement.

Actually, yes, that IS odd. Considering the fact that phone calls are cheap, and so is Skype, the request for a first-round in person interview is definitely odd. They're paying for the campus visit, so they can't make the "tight budget" excuse. I just wish they wouldn't have wasted my time, and actually stated that fact in the job ad.

Instead of being insulted, you could have asked about doing a phone or Skype interview. I found the folks at FSC to be very professional and accommodating.

Curious if there was an inside candidate. Anyone heard anything?

--> Nope, not an inside candidate. A compositionist from New England.

02/03 Received update: Candidates selected for second round of consideration will be contacted the week of Feb 13.

Have heard nothing as of 2/2, perhaps they'll wait & see how the spring hires work out & just keep them so they may not know yet how many they'll need, if any, of those who could start in July . . .

Has anyone been contacted yet? From looking at last year's thread, it seems that they moved rather quickly after the initial deadline but I haven't heard anything...(1/16)

Has anyone heard anything at all, perhaps they've contacted some of the candidates who are eligible for the spring semester first & are waiting to contact the others? (12/27)

It might be helpful to look at last year's thread for this position to get a sense of the timing and other contingencies involved here.

  • When was the offer made? (Feb. 22). This ad resubmitted yesterday (March 1) Are the positions still open? It still says seeking 3 TT faculty http://www.higheredjobs.com/details.cfm?JobCode=175605885
  • Not the original poster of the offer accepted, but I have heard separately, second-hand and completely independent of anything on the wiki, that at least one offer at JMU has been accepted, as of the end of Feb. Maybe one of the other positions is still open? Also, sometimes, ads are accidentally recycled on HigherEdJobs due to HR error or some other system glitch. Perhaps that is the case here as well?
  • The new ad is different from the old ad, so this isn't a reposting or an error. My impression from my MLA interview with them was that they were needing to do some significant hiring and had the administrative support to do so.

I'm confused by the description of required application materials: are the cover letter, reflection on writing, and 200 word course description all meant to be one document?

A: I think so; that's how I prepared mine. There was nowhere to upload additional docs. Plus, I got a receipt of application that made no mention of any missing materials.

3/19: I was informed over the phone that I did not get the position (after a campus interview). Apparently they brought 17 people to campus with the hopes of filling about 7 positions, but so far they have only been able to offer a position to 1 person-- extra congratulations to the poster above! At this point they anticipate being able to hire 1 or 2 more people, neither of whom will be literary scholars.

3/21: Odd that they wanted seven, but might only get two. Is it a funding issue?-> 4/19 A: My understanding is that not many people left, so they didn't have the openings they were expecting.

They are doing phone interviews in lieu of MLA, and plan to schedule campus visits before break.

We're all probably feeling nervous, but after looking through the previous years, it seems fairly normal for people to schedule interviews in December/January.

University of California-Santa Cruz - Lecturer with Security of Employment (2 positions) - CAMPUS VISITS SCHEDULEDEdit

The Writing Program at the University of California, Santa Cruz, seeks applicants with expertise in composition and rhetoric and significant experience working with multilingual students to fill up to two permanent, full-time leadership positions as Lecturer with Security of Employment (SOE). UCSC’s Writing Program has a moderately sized faculty, and is interested in a teacher-administrator with faculty development experience whose expertise in applied linguistics/multilingualism, program assessment, or both will help us develop our programs for incoming UCSC students. The successful candidate will teach a range of writing courses and share administrative responsibilities with other Writing Program faculty, and will take a leadership role in grant writing, program assessment and faculty and course development, especially involving courses designed to effectively support the success of English language learners: thus collaborative work with other campus units engaged in related enterprises is important.

The holder of this position will be expected to teach the equivalent of six quarter courses for the Writing Program; to participate in Writing Program business such as placement and advising, program and personnel reviews, and discussions of pedagogy and policy; to contribute to campus wide work relating to undergraduate education; and at some point to serve a term as program chair, which carries course release.

The Writing Program offers a lower-division writing curriculum that includes interdisciplinary residential college Core courses, entry-level writing courses that integrate instruction for English language learners, and “1B”-level composition courses. Faculty also train and supervise undergraduate writing assistants, and graduate students from a number of fields preparing to teach classes in the program. The Writing Program is an independent unit within the Humanities Division, which also includes the Departments of American Studies, Feminist Studies, History, History of Consciousness, Linguistics, Literature, Philosophy, and the Program in Languages. The Division has a strong tradition of collaborative and interdisciplinary work, and encourages applications from qualified candidates eager to extend their activities across departmental and disciplinary boundaries.

RANK: Lecturer with Security of Employment. The Lecturer SOE rank is a full-time, permanent position with the rights and responsibilities of membership in the Academic Senate; “Security of Employment” is analogous to tenure. Though Lecturer SOE is primarily a teaching position with no set expectations for research and publication, holders are expected to be conversant with scholarship in the theory and practice of composition and rhetoric; and faculty development leaves are possible. Criteria for advancement include teaching, professional achievement and activity, and University and public service.

SALARY: Commensurate with qualifications and experience.

MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS: Doctoral degree or equivalent in a relevant discipline. A minimum of six years of successful university-level teaching. Demonstrated excellence in teaching college composition and rhetoric, including teaching writing to multilingual, second language, heritage, and/or generation 1.5 students. Demonstrated engagement with the pedagogy of writing and rhetorical theory. Evidence of skill at working with students and colleagues from diverse social and cultural backgrounds.

PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS: Experience in program leadership and administration. Preferred candidates will have the ability to help Writing Program faculty develop and teach our programs for multilingual writers, and will therefore have a background in one or more of the following: applied linguistics, with a focus on bilingualism or multilingualism; program assessment; faculty development.

POSITION AVAILABLE: July 1, 2012, with academic year commencing Fall 2012 (subject to final budgetary approval).

TO APPLY: Please send (1) a detailed letter of application describing how your teaching, training, and administrative experience prepare you for this position; (2) a curriculum vitae; (3) three current letters of recommendation*, sent directly to the address below, dated September 2009 or later; and (4) sample syllabi, including syllabus and writing assignments for a composition course for first-year students akin to Writing 2 (for course descriptions and other information, see the Writing Program website at http://writing.ucsc.edu). Applicants are invited to submit a statement addressing their contributions to diversity through their teaching and/or service. Other pertinent materials may also be sent. For more information about the position, please contact Writing Program Manager Pamela Edwards (pedwards@ucsc.edu).

-Has anyone heard anything after MLA? (2/1) x2

- x2 here: Not only have I still not heard anything, but the faculty position in writing has disappeared from the ULV website and other F12 start date faculty positions remain. I don't know what this means other than the fact that I have too much time to speculate with nothing but silence on their end.

[I haven't heard anything and would appreciate to know as well, the chair said they would let people know by late Jan/early Feb and I know their semester started this week]

They have made their decision on final candidates and either have, or will very shortly invite candidate to campus.


[Question: How does review begin on 12/15/11 and yet an MLA interview could be scheduled four days before that? I certainly understand one can turn an application in early, but why wouldn't search committee just publish "review begins immediately - for full consideration submit by 12/15/11" instead?]

wondering the same thing here. It seems that some jobs stick to what they say and others don't.
It is unprofessional.
They probably just wanted to get a jump on the large stack of applications they got. I wouldn't read too much into it. Also, the information on this wiki is sometimes provided by anonymous users who may not be completely trustworthy. Take it for what it is.

NOTES:

Commenter #1: I'm really surprised that Redlands has already made a campus interview offer, on MLK day no less. After my MLA interview I was told it wouldn't be until next week that the offers would go out. And the person who noted the campus interview above has only posted about Lit jobs, and the Redlands job is a pretty advanced WPA spot. Is there any more info on this process from candidates?

ReplY: It's just a shared IP address--2 different, unrelated users. The initial email was actually sent on 1/15, a Sunday. The details are still being worked out, but the phone call was scheduled for 1/16. It's odd, I know, but true. I was also told at MLA that it would be at least 2 weeks before I heard anything.

Commenter #1: Good luck. I think it looks like a really great job.

And of course they might not be finished setting up the campus visits or notifying everyone who will receive one. The fact that rejections have yet to be sent out would confirm that, I think.

Commenter #2: Interview went well, but it became obvious that there are some serious problems at Redlands that are incongruent with the job title. One would think that a school like Redlands would view an endowed chair position as one that would move the writing program forward, but there was no evidence of any desire to do so. All the writing classes, for example, are taught by adjuncts, and my suggestion that this is not a desirable situation was greated unfavorably. Indeed, the interactions with my hosts immediately turned chilly. When contacted for a second interview, I declined.

NOTES:


-The new (and seemingly identical) posting has me confused. Did this position get filled? Is the search closed and now relisted? Anyone heard anything? (3/30)

Like you, I noticed the new posting, though I have heard nothing concrete. The one difference that I noted in the new posting is this sentence: "We are in the process of revising our Professional Writing emphasis; thus the ability to design new courses is desired." It replaces, "Subspeciality to enhance our Professional Writing program is desired." It occurred to me that perhaps they received more general applications than they desired--i.e., people with experience teaching Professional Writing but without specific degrees in Professional/Technical Writing. I can only conclude a dissatisfaction with the first batch of applicants.

Any news on this (6/5)?
