Same search posted in January 2012, when the seach chair's wife held the advertised position as an adjunct. No one was hired TT for that search, and the wife is still adjuncting in the same position. Seems as though they couldn't secure the line the first time around and/or this is an inside hire.

  • Comment: I'm not sure the above is entirely accurate.  A full time person was hired for this position in 2012/2013 and left for another position after only one year.

New faculty selected for these one-year positions will teach a minimum of two class sections a session in on-base education centers in UMUC's unique 8-week, 5-session academic calendar. With few exceptions, new faculty will live off-base, commute by car to their classes, and change teaching locations 3-5 times per year. Full-privilege, base access cards will allow utilization of on-base gyms, commissaries, gas stations, convenient stores, shopping facilities (PX, BX or NEX), banks, libraries, travel/tour agencies, and post offices. Most common teaching assignments are on U.S. military bases in Germany, England, Italy, Japan and South Korea. "Downrange" assignments in Africa and the Middle East are much less common, but may occur.

QUALIFICATIONS:  UMUC is seeking professionals who can combine academic credentials and teaching experience with travel savvy, enthusiasm for educating our troops, and a tolerance for adventure. All positions require a minimum of a master's degree from a regionally accredited institution with doctorate preferred. Candidates are sought who can teach a broad range of courses in their respective disciplines. Preference will be given to candidates with teaching approvals and experience in more than one of the desired disciplines. Although these positions are for on-site teaching, previous online teaching experience is desirable for hybrid courses which combine traditional and online formats.

Applicants must be eligible for individual logistical support in host countries and a favorable background check under the terms of the agreements between the United States and the host countries. Faculty members are required to accept course and location assignments, although preferences are given consideration. Faculty members may sponsor their spouses, who may also receive a full-privilege ID card; however, some assignments downrange will be unaccompanied (i.e., spouses won't have university or government support to accompany the faculty member).

BENEFITS:  UMUC offers an excellent benefits package, including travel expense reimbursement, military base privileges, health insurance, and retirement plans. A very generous compensation package includes base pay, housing allowance, session relocation stipend, currency adjustment, and optional overload teaching pay. Approximately 25% additional base pay and benefits for downrange assignments. UMUC will cover costs of travel to/from the initial/final assigned destinations.

TO APPLY:  An ideal opportunity for professionals at any stage of their career, this is a full-time faculty position with twelve-month renewable contracts beginning in August 2014. Applications will be accepted through February 15, 2014. Interviews conducted through March 2014 at U.S. international airports in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Dallas-Fort Worth, Denver, Kansas City, Chicago, Atlanta, Minneapolis, Washington D.C., and Boston and overseas in Frankfurt, London, Seoul and Tokyo.

NOTES:

  • Please read this article  and conduct careful research. While there are many lovely aspects about Appalachian, you should know that professional writing is situated in a highly contentious English program. In fact, the Department of English personally received a hiring freeze a couple of years ago due to its toxic working environment. There is a clear literature and rhetoric divide, with professional writing caught somewhere in the middle. Many faculty in this department have little respect for non-tenure track faculty, particularly the rhetoric and compositionists. You should only apply for this job if you are published and focused entirely on professional writing. Generalist rhetoric and compositionists should not attempt to "pass" for this position. For those who apply, please make a significant programmatic difference; they need it.

NOTES:

  • Campus interview (12/9), declined invite (mine was the x1 noted above; the college reposted the ad after I declined the campus invite)
  • I'm of two minds posting this, but I hope it's useful. HR arranged a follow-up call with me to basically ask whether or not I would acccept $52k. My response would be forwarded to the Dean, who would then recommend who should be brought to campus. On the one hand, I support the idea of saying, "We've got this firm salary in mind, and if it's too low for you, then it's best we part ways now." On the other, there didn't seem to be any allowance for years of experience beyond getting the PhD, and honestly, $52k in Burlintgon, VT seems scandalous to me. The fact that they have had one or more campus interviewees cancel on them might be related to the salary (2 years of failed searches?). I have to add that the search committee was wonderful!!!
    • Speaking as the "(12/9), declined invite" poster, I declined because of two primary reasons: truly terrible health insurance benefits (high-cost, high-deductible kind only) and the mandatory 1-yr probationary contract. Funny that they're using the $52k mark, as the HR rep gave me no set salary, but I told her that "the absolute lowest I would consider is $52k." Seems they're aiming for as low as they can salary wise. The campus invite came 2-ish weeks post HR call. The HR rep also said that at least a few core faculty have left recently (for multiple, but all professional reasons), two of whom did so because the college provides no research support (note that this is different than what the ad says about ongoing research/professional activity's being supported and encouraged--I've no idea which is correct). All this aside, I second the search committee comment: absolutely wonderful and energetic and I'm sure a blast to work with on campus!
  • ^^To add to this, rent seems to be aroun $1300 per month for a tylical place in the Burlington area. I am not familiar with Burlington though so I can't talk about the general cost of living. $52k would boil down to about $3100 per paycheck. 41% of your paycheck would go to rent alone.
  • --would just like to point out that for many, many, many schools in New England, this salary-to-rent ratio is completely normal. Scandalous to those from other parts of the country, yes, but very typical nonetheless.
  • I'm not sure that because something is "typical" it cannot also be scandalous. ALSO, is the "Interdisciplinary" search a re-post or a different line? The new ad isn't for an Asst. Prof of Rhetoric, and I just got the rejection email saying they are "moving forward with candidates who more closely match our needs."
  • I just got the rejection email too -- and I wasn't even a first-round interviewee. Apparently, they're dumping the entire applicant pool? (Also, I agree that just "because something is 'typical'" doesn't mean "it cannot also be scandalous.")
  • This reposted/rebooted search is going to be receiving very little love from wiki followers.

NOTES:

  • This search is no longer listed on the CUNY employment page, but it is still up at HigherEdJobs.com. Can any one confirm the cancellation / share text of cancellation notice? [11/7/13] --> School sent an email to applicants letting them know the search is cancelled but that the position will reopen at a later date. No other info given. <-- OK. Thx for update.
  • A source at CSI informs me that this search is still open. Abbreviated info still available on JIL (11/8)
  • It sounds like there are some mixed signals going on with this position administratively. It is true that the job was advertised in the 11/8/13 MLA JIL (Interfolio Link): https://apply.interfolio.com/23822. My concern is that Job ID# 9530 mentioned in the MLA Ad/Interfolio link and the earlier ad above cannot be found at http://www.cuny.edu at this time - so effectively no one can apply for this job right now, which lends support to the idea that it has in fact been cancelled (at least for the time being). If and when Job ID# 9530 actually does appear on the CUNY Employment site, we can reopen the position in this page. If anyone at CUNY can illuminate the situation further here, that would be much welcome. (11/09/13)
  • I'm a member of the search committee, so I can clarify a few things here: the job ad had to be rescinded because it mistakenly asked for assistant or associate level applicants. The position is actually for the associate level. Someone higher up in the process added the language of assistant professor to the ad in error after the committee had approved the final version. The administration has deleted the ad and is now posting a new one calling for an associate level hire only. We're working to get that ad out ASAP; it will have a new job # associated with it. So if you're looking at the associate level, please stay tuned. (That is, by the way, the only language within the job ad that will change, if anyone is working on preparing materials.) (11/10/13)
  • NOTE: this position has been reposted in the 11/15/13 MLA JIL as "Associate" level (as indicated above). See below for the full ad including new position #.

  • Does anyone have a suggestion for uploading official transcripts to Interfolio?
  • You have to have your official transcript sent to Interfolio, and Interfolio then uploads it to your dossier. If you search the Help section, there's a decent explanation of the process.
  • Confirmed. I had to order a $10 transcript to be sent to Interfolio and could not upload/add my unoffical. Of course, if you're busy (like with a job), jack-ass special requests like this aren't realized until just before the due date, meaning you may not be able to apply. H&WSC are simply causing a financial hardship (in addition to stress) by asking for official transcripts from 100+ applicants. And having applied for about 20 jobs so far, this is the only instituation wanting "official" docs at this stage. Special requests like this demonstrate a complete lack of audience awareness (unless they are somehow required to ask for official transcripts.) Rant complete. Good luck everyone!

NOTES:

11/12 I got a request for a full dossier of letters of rec. but I can't tell whether it went out to absolutely everyone or just select candidates.  Does anyone have any insight into this issue?

  • LoRs were due at time of application. Did you forget to upload yours on the website?
  • I uploaded the minimum but they wrote and asked for the full dossier because evidently not all job postings they put out advertised the same job application requirements.

Q: I haven't gotten a rejection or an invitation to interview.  Anyone else in that boat? A: Yes, I'm in that boat [11/23]

Has anyone been contacted for interviews? Or did they just send out rejections without contacting any finalists? 

  • Ditto to the above question. Has anyone received an interview request? <--MLA interview scheduled 12/5 (noted above)

--I wish there was a way to explain how the search process is complicated and different at different schools. For example, at my university, we can determine candidates we might wish to interview, those we don't wish to interview, and those we definitely do wish to interview. We (or HR) can contact those we don't wish to interview pretty quickly, but we require special approval from HR and affirmative action (which takes, often, weeks!) before we are allowed to contact those we do wish to interview. We're not allowed to contact those we *might* wish to interview until we have either hired someone (which obviously takes months between interviews, campus visits, and the negotiation process) or have determined that we cannot hire someone from the pool of first-round interviewees and need to return to the larger "might interview" pile. Search committees are not deliberately making any job seekers' lives miserable, though I remember it seeming that way when I was on the market.

NOTES:

I've heard that this campus has recently been in danger of losing state funding and/or closing. Does anybody (perhaps closer to the ground in Nevada) know the current situation? The job sounds really ideal, but more information would help me feel less anxious about job security, should I apply.

  • I'm a lurker who has some friends in higher ed in Nevada - the quick sense I've gotten from them is that the tense times were in 2010 (and a year or two of aftermath) and that there has been some turnaround (the issue was never student enrollment). I heard that it was earmarked for closure in large part because the college simply didn't own very many (if any) of the buildings it was based in so (for a politician I guess? from a budget standpoint) it looked easier on paper to close. I did hear that the campus is a bit scattered and this news story references that somewhat. All of that said - I think it's always worth applying to any job that has potential. It might not be the question to ask in a first round interview, but if you were to go on a campus visit I think it's only fair to ask about the college's mission and state commitment to it in light of Nevada's budgetary decisions. And ask more than one person (and in formal/informal settings) to make sure you have the best picture and can really understand what it was like during that time for the faculty there. 
  • I wonder if there's been any headway on gaining the federal Hispanic Serving Institution status that the article mentions. Thank you for the additional context!

NOTES:

  • Similar search was conducted by this school last year (see Rhetoric/Composition 2013). Is this a new line?
  • Really quick turn around on the rejections. Maybe...they already had a specific canddiate in mind? ---> Maybe.  But I doubt it.  A friend and I both received friendly requests for full dossiers, and neither of us know anyone at the school.  Let's all agree to skip the part where we speculate about secret inside hires this year, please? :: I've also had a request for the dossier without knowing anyone at the school. ::
  • I can confirm this is a completely new line - I had a conference interview with this department last year and the committee said that they had been greenlighted to make a number of hires over the next handful of years in rhet/comp that are TT (prior to last year's hire their rhet/comp folks were exclusively in lecturer positions) so it may be they are even hiring again next year. Michigan Tech seems to be taking a similar, multi-year approach too, as this is the third year of hiring for them after two successful hires over the last two years. (And Pitt's ad on MLA says they plan to hire several positions over the next few years, pending budgetary approval). P.S. I'm a lurker from job market's past interested in job/hiring trends in our field. 
  • I can also confirm that this is a new line; I know the person who was hired last year.

The successful candidate will be conversant with composition theory and have a record of scholarship in the desired areas of expertise (applied linguistics/multilingualism, and/or program assessment), 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 support the success of English language learners.

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 Feminist Studies, History, History of Consciousness, Linguistics, Literature, Philosophy, and the Language Program. 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.

The ability to contribute significantly to graduate education and the mentoring of graduate students is highly desirable. The successful candidate must be able to work with students, faculty and staff from a wide range of social and cultural backgrounds. We are especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through their scholarship, teaching, and service, and we particularly value those who can play leadership roles in pursuing the goal of increasing diversity within the campus community.

NOTES AND QUERIES: 

Can anyone confirm whether campus interviews have been scheduled?

  • This isn't very helpful information, but I had an MLA interview and have heard nothing since. I don't know if campus visits have been scheduled (though I suspect they have since it's been so long with no contact). x3
  • I received a message on 1/25 that the search approval process is taking longer than expected and they hope to be in touch with candidates soon.
  • This position (or one very similar) was reposted at HigherEdJobs.com  on March 7. A glitch or did the campus interviews not work out?
  • I am also wondering what is happening with this reposted job.  Any information?
  • I spoke with someone in the department at Cs. This person said the approval process took so long, that by the time they had candidates approved, the candidates had all already accepted other positions, so the department had to re-open the search.
  • 4/17: received notice that the search is re-opened, request for Skype interview next week, scheduling campus visits in May 
  • 5/13: This search has been closed; it will re-open in the fall, still as a search for a WPA. --UMB faculty member

The Writing Program teaches courses that fulfill the undergraduate writing requirement in a context informed by the rhetorical tradition, process theory, and ethical discursive practices. First-year courses develop students' writing and critical reasoning skills within thematic contexts. Advanced courses, composed primarily of juniors and seniors, bring students together based on their academic interests and career goals, addressing writing in different disciplines for various audiences. Small class sizes in both first-year and upper-level courses facilitate a workshop model of instruction, frequent one-on-one and small-group conferencing, and an emphasis on the writing process.

Full-time non-tenure-track faculty teach three sections each semester, for which they will develop syllabi and assignments in accordance with program guidelines. The Writing Program also provides significant opportunities for professional growth and development. Faculty are eligible to participate in program, college, and university governance. New faculty will join a vibrant community of teachers, writers, and scholars composed of faculty and graduate students from a range of disciplines.

The Writing Program hopes to hire faculty interested in making a career of teaching writing at USC. Initial appointments are fixed-term, with the possibility of renewal contingent on performance and review by the program faculty, its directors, and the college deans. Dornsife provides opportunities for promotion based on demonstrated teaching excellence and service to the program, school, and university.

Qualifications: Candidates should have a PhD or other terminal degree by June 2014. We require demonstrated excellence in teaching writing at the college level and we value familiarity with the needs of writers whose first language is not English. While many of our faculty have scholarly backgrounds in English Literature or Rhetoric and Composition, we welcome candidates from all fields.

Application Procedure: The deadline for applications is December 2, 2013. Applicants should submit a letter of application, CV, teaching evaluations and the names of three referees who can speak to teaching abilities. The referees will be contacted directly by USC. In order to be considered for this position, applicants are required to submit an electronic USC application; follow this job link or paste in a browser: https://jobs.usc.edu/applicants/Central?quickFind=72646

NOTES:

  • NOTE: Applicants might want to be aware of some context for these positions: VMI's English department recently underwent a shift in its curriculum. It changed from a Department of English and Fine Arts to a Department of English, Rhetoric, and Humanistic Studies (ERH). As a result, six professors resigned, two philosophers previously teaching in a different department at the institute moved into the newly-organized and interdisciplinary ERH department, and five tenure-track professors--specializing in a variety of disciplines--were hired last season. There has been a lot of controversy over the curriculum change, as you might imagine, and there is also a lot of misinformation that continues to circulate. As a result, the department is still innovating and developing the new curriculum, which has some really exciting potential for rhetoric and composition specialists.
  • NOTE2: Check The Chronicle for the curious circumstances under which those "six professors resigned."
  • Or see here: http://scholarsatrisk.nyu.edu/Events-News/Article-Detail.php?art_uid=4133

Does anyone know what a Curriculum Contribution statement is?

11/8/13 I discovered this one late. Are people treating Nov 1 as a deadline? Anyone have a sense of how much play this job is getting?

  • No idea how many people applied--it looks interesting, and Singapore is in many respects a pleasant place to live, so I did.  The response to my query about the curriculum contribution statement (I am not the poster above) was the following: "The Curriculum Contribution Statement is a short, one-page (up to 500 words) write-up discussing how your teaching might fit into the proposed Yale-NUS College curriculum. Further details about the Yale-NUS curriculum may be found on our web site: http://www.yale-nus.edu.sg/curriculum/common-curriculum/".  One thing to note: the founding charter (on my reading of it, at least) does not provide for meaningful faculty governance.  Also of note: this was the only position for which I did not receive confirmation of receipt of application.

Rejection (after preliminary interview):

  • Rejected (3/7/2014), after what seemed like a great phone interview. A heartbreaker, this one. 
  • Agreed. Also got rejection email 3/7/2014.
  • Another rejection here (03/07/14). Also thought the interview went well. Crushed. Especially since they say they may hire through May depending on needs; seems they will go for the people who didn't intitially get a phone interview over those who did and got rejected, which makes it worse. :(
  • Another rejection/waitlist. (03/07/2014). Heartbroken too! Did everyone's letter contain this: "We regret that you have not been selected for the first round of campus interviews, but we remain interested in your candidacy. There is still a possibility that we will continue interviews on a rolling basis through April, and we would like to keep your application active."?
  • Mine included that phrase! (03/07/14) Am being relentlessly sunny and viewing this not as a rejection but as an adjournment. 

Campus interview scheduled:

  • Any news on campus interviews? (3/4/14)
  • It's been quite awhile since the rejections after the phone interview. Are there really no updates on campus interviews? (3/27/14)
