Hampden-Sydney College (VA) - TT Asst. Professor of Rhetoric (3 Positions)Edit

Hampden-Sydney College invites applications for three tenure-track openings at the rank of Assistant Professor of Rhetoric, beginning August 2018. Successful candidates for all positions will teach courses in the College’s Rhetoric Minor, the most popular minor that we offer, as well as several sections of first-year composition courses in our general education rhetoric sequence. Hampden-Sydney’s Rhetoric Program—praised and supported by its administration, faculty, and alumni as a central part of the curriculum—is now poised to move into an exciting new phase. Hiring for Rhetoric positions vacated by retiring faculty at the same time that the College moves forward with plans to establish a new Communication Commons provides a unique opportunity for our program to reinvent the kinds of tutorial services that we offer to students in all disciplines, to reinvigorate our connections with faculty in other departments and programs across campus, and to expand our offerings in the Rhetoric minor. We seek candidates who can both contribute to our highly-regarded program’s existing strengths and spearhead curricular initiatives, including initiatives for our innovative tutorial space.

1) One tenure-track position for which we invite applications involves directing Rhetoric Program tutorial services in the proposed new Communication Commons, current plans for which involve combining our existing speaking and writing centers in one location central to the campus and providing multimodal tutorial services to assist students and faculty across the curriculum. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in hand by August 2018 in Rhetoric/Composition or a related field such as Communication Center Administration and should have composition teaching experience as well as some administrative experience. Candidates who are able to offer tutoring services and train student peer tutors in written, spoken, and visual communication are especially well-suited for this position. Review of applications begins October 15, 2017.

2) and 3) For our other tenure-track openings, we seek candidates with a Ph.D. in hand by August 2018 in Rhetoric/Composition or a related field who have teaching experience in first-year composition programs and primary or secondary expertise in one or more of the following fields: Writing across the Curriculum/Writing in the Disciplines, basic writing, multimodal rhetoric, visual communication, professional communication, creative nonfiction, and journalism. Successful candidates for these positions will teach some combination of 100-level first-year composition courses as well as existing courses in the Rhetoric minor (Rhetoric 360: Topics in Rhetorical Traditions; Rhetoric 370: Rhetoric and Culture; Rhetoric 301: Creative Nonfiction); they will also have the opportunity to develop new courses for the minor, such as multimodal communication and professional communication. Application deadline: November 15, 2017.

Hampden-Sydney College, located on a beautiful 1000-acre campus in Virginia, is a selective liberal arts college for men enrolling about 1,100 students. Candidates with experience in a liberal arts environment are preferred.

The annual teaching load for successful applicants for these positions will likely be four sections of our 100-level Rhetoric courses, which are capped at 14 students, and either three sections of upper-level courses or a combination of upper-level courses and course-equivalents for administrative/tutorial work in the planned Communication Commons.

Candidates for the director of tutorial services position should apply through this Interfolio link: http://apply.interfolio.com/44603. Candidates for the other two positions should apply through this Interfolio link http://apply.interfolio.com/44605. For all three positions, please include a letter of application, curriculum vitae, writing sample, and three confidential letters of reference. Letters of application should be addressed to Dr. Katherine Weese, Director of the Rhetoric Program, Hampden-Sydney College, Hampden-Sydney, VA 23943.
