Oregon State University (OR) - TT Assistant Professor, Rhetoric and Composition/Literacy Studies and English Language Learners -- CANCELLEDEdit

Oregon State University's commitment to student success includes hiring, retaining, and developing diverse faculty to mentor and educate our undergraduate and graduate students from entry through graduation. Our Strategic Plan (http://oregonstate.edu/leadership/strategicplan/phase3 ) articulates the strategies we believe critical to advancing and equalizing student success. As part of this commitment, OSU has established a hiring initiative for 2014-15 that is designed to support these strategies. In alignment with this initiative, the School of Writing, Literature, and Film invites applications for a full-time (1.0 FTE), 9-month, tenure-track Assistant Professor position in the field of Rhetoric and Composition/Literacy Studies and English Language Learners.

This position focuses on research, teaching, and professional development that advances student success and diversity for English language learners in university writing courses. The faculty member will teach four courses per year on a trimester system, typically including undergraduate writing courses and undergraduate and graduate courses in the teaching of writing, literacy studies, and English language learning in writing instruction. This position will maintain a commitment to intensive mentoring and advising of graduate students in thesis projects. The position will also create and implement professional development workshops for GTAs, faculty, and instructors. A record of scholarship/creative activity and potential for distinction in the field are required for tenure.

The primary mission of the School of Writing, Literature, and Film is research/creative activity and undergraduate and graduate education. The School is home to university-wide writing programs taught by faculty in the discipline of rhetoric and composition and a graduate program (MA in English) with a rhetoric, writing, and culture strand. Faculty offer graduate coursework in the teaching of writing and literacy studies leading to an MA in English with an emphasis in rhetoric and composition. The School also offers an MFA in Creative Writing, undergraduate minors in writing and film, and a B.A. in English. The new faculty member will engage collaboratively with researchers and teachers in rhetoric and composition faculty (including our Director of First-Year Writing), and may become involved in such ongoing OSU initiatives as international education, global diversity, and Latino/a outreach and engagement.

As part of the College of Liberal Arts, the School of Writing, Literature, and Film is a community that includes and values the voices of all people. As such, we recognize the social barriers that have systematically marginalized and excluded people and communities based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual identity, socioeconomic background, age, disability, national origin and religion. We are committed to the equity of opportunities, and strive to promote and advance diverse communities. We value and proactively seek genuine participation from these historically under-represented and underserved groups, and recognize them as an essential component of creating a welcoming and rich academic, intellectual, and cultural environment for everyone. CLA is home to the Center for Latin@ Studies and Engagement, one of two Latino research centers in Oregon public higher education.(http://liberalarts.oregonstate.edu/centers-and-initiatives/center-latino-studies-and-engagement.)

NOTES:

  • I received an e-mail stating that, while I had not made the cut for MLA interviews, there was a possibility that I would be interviewed after MLA. How many others received this e-mail?
  • Answer: I suppose this is HR speak saying you are 'technically' still a candidate as all are until a job offer is accepted. 1/8
  • I also got this. I assume that means we were on like a second-tier to the shortlist, maybe?
  • Perhaps. Wiki says that standard rejections were also sent out, so I'm wondering if there is a second-tier group and, if so, how many of us are on it.

Any further communication from these guys, either confirmation of rejection (after those pseudo-rejections) or actual campus invites? I'm one of the pseudo-rejections and am kind of assuming it'll be silence from here on out, but just wondering. (1/28)

  • I'd imagine that campus visits are happening now; after that, they may decide to interview more of us on the waitlist. Or they might send us a final notification, which I hope we receive no matter what. (1/28)
  • I got notification a couple weeks ago that I didn't make the inital cut for a campus interview (I did have a MLA interview) but I, too, was being kept in the candidate pool as searches can be complicated. I am assuming visits are going on through February. (1/30)
  • Incredibly, after all that, looks the search has been cancelled. Email today: "due to a variety of factors, our Rhetoric/Ell and Literacy Studies position has been closed.   It has been determined that the profile of the position will be reconsidered and re-advertised next year." (4/7)

University of Montana (MT) - TT Asst. Professor, Director of CompositionEdit

The University of Montana, the College of Humanities and Sciences, and the Department of English embrace diversity as a core value. Applications from persons with diverse backgrounds are especially welcome.

The University of Montana and the Department of English seek applicants for a tenure-track appointment as Director of Composition, at the rank of Assistant Professor. This position, to begin in August of 2015, carries the primary responsibility of directing the first-year writing program. Assisted by a Composition Coordinator (appointed at the lecturer level), the Director will mentor forty graduate teaching assistants from a variety of disciplines in the humanities. A majority of these teaching assistants are graduate students in the English Department's Creative Writing Program. The Director will also oversee program development and, in collaboration with the Writing Center, the University Writing Committee, and various administrative and faculty constituencies, nurture the university's broader writing initiatives. The English Department itself has a history of excellence in writing and scholarship, including a nationally ranked Creative Writing program and a strong English Teaching program, and thus offers many possibilities for collaboration and support for an integrative and affiliative Director.

The teaching load is two classes per academic year. This includes a one-week orientation for teaching assistants just prior to the start of fall semester and continues with a writing pedagogy and theory course throughout the year. There are opportunities to teach advanced composition courses and upper-division and/or graduate courses in the appointee's area of research. We welcome any secondary interests that would undergird the prospective Director's success as a scholar, a program administrator, and a teacher. Because the Composition Program features two laptop writing classrooms, a background in multimodal composition, visual rhetorics, digital literacy, and information literacy pedagogy would be especially desirable. Mindful of other strong departmental and campus programs, we'd also welcome scholarly intersections with such fields as Environmental Studies, Media Arts, Irish Studies, Native American Studies, Film Studies, and Women's and Gender Studies.

The University of Montana enrolls some 15,000 students, and boasts a beautiful fifty-six acre campus in a dramatic mountain setting; its strong humanities orientation is complemented by highly regarded schools of business, law, forestry, and pharmacy. The city of Missoula features award-winning schools, a thriving downtown, a seasonal farmers market, and a diverse culture of the arts, while western Montana offers unmatched recreational opportunities.

Required Experience: Doctorate in composition/rhetoric or related field. Candidates expecting to receive their doctorate by August 2015 will also be considered. Writing Program Administration expertise Excellence in college teaching Scholarly record or agenda proportionate to the applicant's years of service and rank Background in writing pedagogy and teacher preparation Ability to develop, articulate, and administer a curriculum for first-year composition Ability to work collaboratively both within the English Department and with administrators and faculty across campus Ability to play an important role in campus discussions about writing
