  • I know it's a "buyer's market," but I don't think it's especially respectful never to contact Skype interviewees from late October and then repost the same job on 11/19.
Great! Didn't catch the Columbus Day coincidence. Guess this one will have to be late :(

NOTES:

Do you know how they want the additional materials submitted? I tried to submit via Interfolio with no luck.

Hi VW - I just hit reply to the email and attached them to the email request. The email I sent yesterday didn't bounce back (even with slightly large pdfs attached - none over 5mb though I don't think), but I suppose I might hear on Monday if I was supposed to do it differently. If I remember correctly, the email addy belongs to an Administrative Staff Member in the office, who I assumed is assisting the search chair in assembling the additional materials.

JF: Hi VW and others, I had my recommendation letters and teaching statement sent via Interfolio. What additional materials did they ask from you, if you don't mind? I'm on the market for the first time and not sure how to "read" those requests.

Sorry I didn't see this until now - the request was for research samples (this was the first request I had hear of in our field for more than one sample, this tends to be more typical in communications) and a teaching portfolio (specifically sample syllabi, teaching evaluations, or teaching observations).

10/15 - The online application "Required Documents" section has taken an exorbinant amount of time (going on 30+ minutes now) to convert my documents into pdf even though 1) they were already PDFs (a file type allowed, according to the FAQs) and 2) were well under the maximum file size. It does seem to be working - albeit slowly - perhaps this is an anomaly, but I strongly recommend anyone applying to this job to 1) give yourself some time to wait for the conversion process and 2) try to upload while their HR offices are still open on 10/16 (tomorrow) since it's the deadline (they close at 5pm EST). Much love to everyone on the market this year - these online apps can be such a time suck!

    • Is the interview posted her supposed to be posted in the Tech/Prof writing category (above) where others are posting interview requests too?  Or did they really schedule both on the same day?
    • HI-I posted the interview scheduled and it was indeed scheduled for the rhet/comp. job, not the prof. writing job. I was contacted about an interview for the rhet/comp. job on 12/1, (early evening, by email), so it appears they may have schedled both on the same day?  I hope you still have an interview request coming if your interest is in the rhet/comp job!

NOTES AND QUERIES:

I know this is likely partly motivated by my own "sour grapes" but two things irked me about this position when they gave Skype interviewees more information about it. 1) The search chair claimed this was the first time they searched for this position as a tenure line but the Rhet/Comp wiki from years past suggests they have actually had two searches for this same position that even went forward to campus visits once and 2) the info said they were interviewing candidates from a range of disciplines who would also direct the writing center and coordinate the first year writing seminars. I continue to be irked by the suggestion that what our field produces knowledge and research about is somehow more easily graspable (or administrable) by other disciplines. Or that somehow our writing research doesn't actively inform our administrative or teaching practices. This job market is a grind, can't I at least hope for two things: truthfulness and respect for my discipline? I sincerely hope that a Rhet/Comp person gets this position to prove perhaps these are really just my sour grapes ;)

Also saw one of the interviwers at the Bedford Party at CCCCs who looked through me when I waved and said hello. I wasn't raised in the Catholic tradition, but I'm pretty sure values like "ignoring people once you are no longer interested them" and "ignoring people standing in front of you being polite" are not Jesuit values. It's not embarassing that a search committee moves on with other candidates (there are a lot of great candidates out there! we rock!), it's embarassing when the search committee can't handle it with the smallest measure of respect.

There was no "provide their contact information" type of section; the site asked you to directly upload the letters. Well, I don't have an electronic version of my recommenders' "confidential" letters on my computer; my recommenders do.  Too bad.

Did you not see their instructions on the job posting page? If you're getting your Ph.D., you should be expected to read and follow directions.

The English Department invites applications for a Rhetoric specialist to direct our First-Year Rhetoric and Writing Program, tenure-track with maximum three years full time postdoctoral experience, to teach courses in areas of specialization, and to teach First-Year Rhetoric and Writing courses.

We value and require the ability to work collaboratively with and provide professional development for 29+ Non-Tenure Track instructors (all MA-level minimum), many of whom have taught First-Year Writing at UCCS for 10+ years. These faculty provide a dedicated and stable cohort of Instructors and Senior Instructors. Begins 1 August 2013. Administrative experience required.

Interests in rhetorical history, theory, and criticism; composition theory and pedagogy; literacies (including research and information), computers in the classroom; assessment; WAC/WID, and/or WPA are welcome. Our Department functions on an English Studies model.

Consequently, our new colleague must be able to collaborate effectively with colleagues in English (T/TT/NTT faculty) who teach and do research in Literature, Professional and Technical Writing, Classical Rhetoric, and our growing Creative Writing cohort. Candidates must also be able to collaborate with Ph.D.-level faculty in related extra-departmental areas, such as WAC, Third-Year campus-wide Portfolio Writing Assessment (led by another Director), and the Writing Center, also led by a separate Director and staffed by student-consultants (usually English majors) who are trained in the ENGL Department's Peer Tutoring course (ENGL 4800, a course typically taught by the Writing Center Director).

Teaching load in the first year is 1/1. The standard Director's teaching load after year one is 2/2. We anticipate that the new Director will be aided by NTT Senior Instructors appointed to supporting roles in First-Year Rhetoric and Writing, possibly with teaching off-loads. Our new colleague will teach First-Year Rhetoric and Writing and upper-division courses in areas of specialization. A proven research agenda is required for a Department and College/campus that values both talented teaching and refereed research; we are also a service-oriented group. Ph.D. in hand by 30 June 2013.

NOTES AND QUERIES:

Given the recent Chronicle of Higher Education article "Phds Need Not Apply Stale Phds Need Not Apply" I have concerns about the ethics of this position restriction (no more than 3 years postdoctoral experience).

NOTES AND QUERIES:

Sorry to hear about the rejection received on Dec 20 - could you tell us if it was email or snail mail?

I received an email.  I'd been in touch with the department, and as of this week, they'd told me they'd not yet interviewed anyone, so I find it confusing that an offer was made and accepted today.

I find it confusing as well. Was your email a form letter or personalized? I haven't heard anything at all.

  • Is there any possibility that the department contact confused this search with the very similar Harvard Preceptor search for 2013-14 (posted below, deadline Jan. 7)?      
  • A: I doubt that is the case - I was told by dept contact that candidates would not be contacted for interviews until mid-December. Perhaps they just decided they had enough people already, or they hired from within? 
  • I wrote the above note about receiving an email, and I don't think the department contact was confused.  He knew I was referring to the teaching that begins in January.  I applied last fall as well and made it further along than this time.  After they had asked for additional materials, they sent a follow up email telling me they were still interested but were in a "holding pattern" until they could figure out how many people they needed to hire.  Then I never heard from them again, which is why this time I was trying to track more closely where they were in the hiring process.  I wonder if they didn't hire someone local or already known to them.
  • I didn't receive a rejection letter and my application in the online system still says "in progress"....??

Princeton University - Lectureships in the Princeton Writing Program - OFFER MADEEdit

We invite applications for full and part-time lectureships in the Princeton Writing Program. Full-time lecturers teach two topic-based Writing Seminars per term to freshmen. Part-time lecturers teach 1-1, 1-2, 2-1, 0-2, or 2-0 based on the needs of the Program and at the discretion of the Director. Seminar topics span the disciplines; we therefore seek candidates from all fields of study in the humanities, social sciences, sciences, and engineering. The Lecturer's task is to use the topic of the seminar as a vehicle for teaching strategies and techniques of scholarly writing. Lecturers participate in a comprehensive faculty development program, which includes meetings and workshops on seminar design and writing pedagogy, as well as a series of teaching workshops in the Fall. In addition, experienced lecturers contribute to the Program in a variety of ways (e.g., lead faculty workshops, work on Program assessment, and collaborate with academic departments on Writing Across the University projects). In turn, the program provides Lecturers with ample opportunities for professional development as scholars and teachers.

The Princeton Writing Program cultivates a multidisciplinary faculty and welcomes applications from scientists and social scientists. The program is equally committed to sustaining a scholarly community inclusive of all races, nationalities, genders, and socioeconomic backgrounds. We strongly encourage women and underrepresented minorities to apply.

The appointment period is one year, renewable for a total of up to five years. The salary for full-time lecturers in 2013-14 is a minimum of $58,300 (paid over the academic year) plus benefits and eligibility for research and conference travel grants. Part-time lecturers are paid on a pro-rated basis according to their teaching load and are eligible for most benefits. The initial period of appointment is September 1, 2013, through June 30, 2014; however, all new faculty must attend full-day workshops May 28-30, 2013, and be accessible over the summer to develop their Writing Seminars in consultation with Writing Program directors. Regular faculty development meetings throughout the year are also required, including full days of follow-up workshops and a Program-wide faculty retreat on September 3, 4, and 11, 2013.

We expect to hire 3-5 full-time lecturers. Part-time lecturers may be hired to fill additional needs.

The Lecturer search is open until filled. Review of applications will begin immediately. The deadline for full consideration is December 17, 2012. Candidates must apply online through Jobs at Princeton, at http://jobs.princeton.edu (select "Search Open Positions" from the left-hand menu and use Requisition Number 1200788 to begin the application process). The following documents should be uploaded:

Cover letter that includes a reflection on your approach to teaching writing and relevant experience, a brief summary of your scholarly research project, and a 200-word course description for an interdisciplinary Writing Seminar (see this year's course descriptions on our website for models); cover letters addressing contributions to diversity are encouraged.

CV; and Writing sample, preferably an academic paper or chapter (limited to 25 pages). Letters of recommendation will be requested only from those candidates invited to interview.

More information is available at http://www.princeton.edu/writing

Essential Qualifications: Successful candidates will be strong academic writers, have demonstrated excellence in college-level teaching, and have carefully considered the role of writing in their courses. The Ph.D. is expected.

Education Required: Doctorate Degree

NOTES AND QUERIES:

  • If anyone else applied to this position but did not receive an email acknowledgment, I can confirm that I spoke with a member in the Writing Program earlier today (12/11) who was very polite, expressed apologies they were behind in sending out acknowledgments, and said they would be confirming receipt/contacting applicants shortly. I usually wouldn't call, but when it was a snail mail app + the mention of acknowledging applications in the advertisement, I wanted to make sure.
  • Has anyone who interviewed for the positition at the MLA heard back from the committee?
  • Through the grapevine: committee will likely get back to candidates by the end of February.
  • I was told on Jan 5 at the MLA that the committee would get back to candidates in "about a month."  I have not yet heard back.
  • I checked my interview notes too: I also noted that the Chair said the hiring would begin sometime in February but would also be staggered (sometimes even going into the summer) based on assessing enrollment needs/returning lecturers.
  • Ah! Now I can stop obsessively checking this Wiki post for... a week.
  • Noted that last year's posting for this position had no updates from MLA to April:/
  • Interviewed at the MLA (1/5) and just received an email rejection (3/20).  Best of luck to the rest of you!
  • Ditto on the last post - congrats to the lucky new Lecturer:)
