Oberlin College (OH) - Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Speaking, Writing and/or Multimodal LiteracyEdit

The Rhetoric and Composition Department at Oberlin College invites applications for a full-time, non-continuing faculty position as a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Speaking, Writing, and/or Multimodal Literacy. Qualifications for the position include a PhD in Communications or in Composition, Rhetoric, or a similar field. Appointment to this position will be for a term of two years beginning fall 2016 and will carry the rank of Visiting Assistant Professor. The position is supported by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Currently, the mission of the Rhetoric and Composition Department at Oberlin College (http://new.oberlin.edu/rhetoric) is to offer instruction to writers at all levels and to support the writing requirement, which was recently revised. The Rhetoric and Composition Department also oversees a robust Writing Associates Program, through which students assist their peers in the writing center or in writing-intensive courses; the incumbent will help us explore ways to augment the Writing Center to include assistance with presentations and speaking across modes and disciplines.

The successful candidate will have experience and interests in speaking and writing as complementary practices. While speaking pedagogy and writing pedagogy have often been treated within separate fields in the academy, we are looking for a candidate who recognizes and can teach the connections between these modes of communication and composition. With this background, the incumbent will join the department to work on an initiative to strengthen speaking and presentation skills, increase the capacity of faculty across the curriculum to teach those skills, and explore expanding the Rhetoric and Composition curriculum to include multimodal and speaking pedagogy. Applicants with experience in speaking center pedagogy and practice are especially welcome. Because we recognize that most graduate programs in composition do not include speaking skills, we are open to candidates who have interests or experiences in those areas, even if that is not the center of their research or teaching. The successful candidate will teach two courses per year in the areas of writing, speaking, and/or multimodal composition.

Among the qualifications required for appointment is the Ph.D degree awarded no earlier than 2013 but in hand by 1 July 2016. Candidates must demonstrate interest and potential excellence in undergraduate teaching. Successful teaching experience at the college level is desirable; experience with speaking center theory and practice is a plus.

http://jobs.oberlin.edu:80/postings/1253

Within the range established for this position, salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience and includes an excellent benefits package.

To apply, candidates should visit the online application site found at https://jobs.oberlin.edu. A complete application will be comprised of 1) a Cover Letter that includes an articulation of the applicant’s teaching philosophy; 2) a Curriculum Vitae; 3) Unofficial transcript; and, 4) Letters of Reference from three (3) recommenders* All application materials must be submitted electronically through Oberlin’s employment website to https://jobs.oberlin.edu/ *By providing these letters you agree that we may contact your references.

Review of applications will begin on December 1, 2015, and will continue until the position is filled. Completed applications received by the February 2 deadline will be guaranteed full consideration.

Questions about the position can be addressed to: laurie.mcmillin@oberlin.edu or Laurie McMillin, Chair of Rhetoric and Composition, at 440-775-8614.

University of Houston (TX) - Houston Writing Fellows - Visiting Assistant Professor - OFFER ACCEPTEDEdit

With nearly fifty faculty, the University of Houston’s English Department is one of the largest departments in one of the nation’s most diverse public research-one institutions. With almost forty thousand students in the fourth largest city in the United States, the University has no ethnic majority. Like the city it serves, the University of Houston today has the multi-cultural dynamic that will become the norm across the country in years to come.

The English Department has a deep commitment to the art and craft of writing and, relatedly, to writing instruction. Long recognized for its Creative Writing program, the Department is committed to innovative writing pedagogy, and offers a doctoral concentration in Rhetoric, Composition and Pedagogy that builds on the diversity of the city and University. In particular, the Department is interested in how the field of Rhetoric, Composition, and Pedagogy intersects with such areas as cultural studies, literacy studies, theories of gender, race, and identity, and how they contribute to the theory and practice of writing and writing instruction. The concentration aspires to build on the dynamic relationship that exists between the University and its multi-cultural setting.

The Houston Writing Fellows Program grows out of this commitment to studying the theory and practices of writing instruction. The Program is meant to involve instructors in an intellectual community that fosters theorized and self-reflective teaching practices. The appointment of Writing Fellows, professionals who are interested in working with faculty, graduate and undergraduate students to examine and refine their teaching, is an effort to broaden and deepen the community of scholar-teachers, and to add to the discourse in the field of Rhetoric, Composition, and Pedagogy.

Participants normally teach the equivalent of four sections per semester of the first-year composition sequence (English 1303 or 1304), and are expected to participate in the events, workshops, seminars offered by the Department’s writing program.

The University of Houston is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action institution. Minorities, women, veterans and persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply.

Minimum Qualifications: Individuals who have received their Ph.D. or M.F.A. degrees within the past five years are invited to apply to the Department of English’s Houston Writing Fellowship Program.

Preferred Qualifications: Evidence of effective teaching, and of ongoing interest and research activity in writing pedagogy and innovative teaching.

Special Instructions to the Applicant: Candidates should submit a letter of application that speaks to their teaching experience and their research interests in writing pedagogy, and addresses how they can contribute to and benefit from the Houston Writing Fellowship Program; a curriculum vitae; transcripts of their graduate degree(s); list three references; sample teaching evaluations; and sample course syllabi. Successful candidates will combine a record of teaching and academic excellence and evidence of the ability to contribute to the intellectual community of the Program.

University of Southern California - Los Angeles, CA

The USC Writing Program in the Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences in Los Angeles, California, seeks qualified applicants for full-time non-tenure-track teaching positions—Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Master Lecturer, Assistant Professor (Teaching), Associate Professor (Teaching), and Professor (Teaching)—to join our faculty beginning Fall 2016.

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, attended primarily by 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 2016. 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 November 30, 2015. 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, all candidates must apply via the “ CLICK HERE ” link at the top of this page.
