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

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.

Outside of the foundational core, this position offers avenues for teaching in our signature Integrative Core, in our integrative programs (Catholic Studies, Environmental Studies, Peace and Justice Studies, and Women's and Gender Studies) and in course offerings which support rhetoric and writing across the curriculum (such as our Writing Concentration).

Because the FYE is the first contact faculty and staff have with our incoming students, the Assistant Professor of Rhetoric & Composition will contribute to FYE and campus-wide collaboration towards an environment which is both welcoming and intellectually engaging, an environment which fosters success for all our new students.

Finally, we are seeking a scholar-teacher with a strong interest in and capacity for a research program in the Scholarship in Teaching and Learning which can serve to enhance these programmatic efforts.

Responsibilities: Teach within the first two years for employment a 3-2 course load per year, thereafter a 2-2 course load as the faculty member assumes greater programmatic responsibilities and stronger leadership role in areas of professional expertise. Develop and implement faculty development workshops for teaching composition and rhetoric within the FYE and across the curriculum. Offer pedagogical support for new FYE faculty through class observation and mentoring. Help to create and maintain a digital repository of programmatic materials as well as curricular models and best practices for teaching composition and rhetoric. Participate in the FYE Advisory Council's work to ensure high-impact learning for our students so that we deliver the programming and education students expect when they matriculate to Regis. Contribute to the work of that same Advisory Council to assess student, faculty and programmatic outcomes. Collaborate closely with Director of the First-Year Experience, the Director of Student Support and other stakeholders in making inclusive excellence a key element of our way of proceeding.

Minimum Qualifications: Commitment to the values of a Jesuit, liberal arts education. Conferred PhD in Rhetoric and Composition or in English with specialization in Rhetoric. At least three years of full-time collegiate teaching experience. Proven experience and leadership in program development and operations. Understanding of the principles, procedures, and best practices involved in faculty development for teaching composition and rhetoric.

Knowledge of how to manage student activities such that an atmosphere appropriate to learning is achieved. Ability to provide the students with the academic tools needed to persist and have a successful university experience. Ability to communicate and to collaborate effectively with students, faculty and staff and to incorporate those skills into the courses they teach to provide direction in the classroom. Strong organizational skills, attention to detail, and flexibility. Ability to work with teams as well as independently. Professionalism in dress, manner, behavior, and communication. Sound judgment and diplomacy in interpreting Regis College and University policy in absence of supervisor. Confidentiality and loyalty to the University and to the Regis mission.

Arkansas State University Campus Querétaro (MEX) - Composition InstructorsEdit

Arkansas State University has recently opened a campus in Querétaro, México (A-State Campus Querétaro, or A-State CQ), and is recruiting instructors of First-Year Writing courses for 2018.  We have immediate openings for January and more openings for next fall.

The Position: We are seeking dynamic, qualified colleagues who use modern composition methods and pedagogies in the classroom.  Interested candidates may also teach a course in literature and business communication. All instructors must have a minimum of a Master’s degree appropriate for the discipline with at least 18 graduate hours in English and composition.  Preference will be given to candidates with educational and teaching experience in the United States.  Experience teaching ESL/EFL students and teaching in an international setting are pluses.

The standard teaching load will be five courses per semester for instructors, or four courses per semester for Assistant Professors.  Reassigned time equal to one course may be negotiated for relevant research, administrative duties, assignment to the Writing Center or extraordinary student engagement.  The language of instruction is English; Spanish language skills will prove useful but are not required.  

All faculty will be nine-month contingent employees (non-tenure track). The term may be extended at any time by mutual agreement. Depending on enrollment patterns, very limited summer teaching opportunities may be available. The academic calendar will be similar to most institutions in the United States, approximately August 15 – May 15 annually.

Faculty must meet all relevant qualifications for similar employment at Arkansas State University.  However, faculty will NOT become employees of Arkansas State University.  Instead, they will be employed by a private sector foundation registered in Mexico for this purpose.   All non-Mexican national faculty members must qualify for employment as a foreign worker in Mexico, with this process being managed by A-State Querétaro at no cost to the faculty member. 

Compensation in Mexican pesos will be guided by prevailing Mexican rates for university faculty with the expectation that A-State CQ intends to be a preferred employer among institutions of higher education in Mexico.

The Campus: A-State CQ is the first American-style comprehensive residential campus in Mexico and began teaching students in the fall of 2017.  Through a multi-national public-private partnership, Arkansas State University, accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, will be responsible for all academic and curricular matters while a private foundation registered in Mexico will construct and maintain the campus, ensure its official status and serve as the operating partner.

Located in the highlands of central Mexico two hours north of Mexico City, Santiago de Querétaro (1.8m) is a UNESCO World Heritage city and one of the fastest growing and safest in Mexico. Home to more than 1,300 multi-national corporations, international interest in Querétaro has increased because of its economic growth, high quality of life, social progress and its year-round temperate climate

Clearly, this opportunity is not for everyone – but for a few pioneering, inspirational teachers, dedicated to the success of students in this unique setting, it could be an unparalleled experience. 

For more information about Arkansas State University Campus Querétaro and to apply, please visit www.astate.mx and click on the “Job Opportunities” button and follow the “Faculty Positions” link for more information and to send an application.

We are embarking on an exciting, challenging effort to reinvigorate how we teach FYW at Texas Tech. Already we teach almost 3,000 students a semester in introduction and advanced composition. We want to increase that number, but just as important, we want to improve the experience of the students enrolled in FYW, as well as those assigned to teach it as graduate teaching assistants. The successful candidate will contribute to our efforts to remake FYW, teaching 6 large-section (100-plus students per section with breakout sessions taught by TAs) FYW courses per year, as well as mentoring graduate student teaching assistants (TAs) assigned to support that teaching.

Candidates with an earned doctorate in English, specializing in composition studies, writing program administration (WPA), or a related area, with at least 5 years of university-level teaching experience, are preferred. Experience mentoring graduate student TAs is desired. In addition, experience working with diverse student populations and first-generation students is highly desirable.
