University of Pittsburgh (PA) - Crow Chair in WritingEdit

Pending budgetary approval, we seek a distinguished tenured scholar at associate or full professor rank to fill the Crow Chair in Writing in Pitt’s Composition Program. The chair was established to support a professor with a record of distinguished scholarship, a strong commitment to the teaching of composition, engagement with writing instruction, broadly defined, and recognition as one who contributes broadly to the department's mission. We look for a colleague who is open to innovative writing, research, and pedagogy and to pushing the boundaries of the discipline and its relationships to other aspects of English and to the broader public—a colleague who can help mentor the up-and-coming junior faculty, attract and supervise graduate students, and share in the administration of the program and in the support of writing instruction across the university.

Such a colleague would teach a range of courses in the graduate and undergraduate curriculum and join a core faculty with a distinguished record of work in composition, literacy, pedagogy, and rhetoric whose interests include the history and theory of literacy and instruction, rhetoric and poetics, digital media, activist and working class rhetorics, material and bodily rhetorics, critical rhetorics of race and sexuality, rhetorics of science and technology, African American rhetoric and public writing, student writing, and the relationship of reading to writing. Our program has long cultivated interdisciplinary and innovative approaches to the field of composition with a strong commitment to its integration into English Studies. Our new major in Public and Professional Writing extends those commitments across the university and to workplaces, as well as to the broader public sphere. Colleagues edit the Pittsburgh Series in Composition, Literacy, and Culture, collaborate with researchers in science and engineering, and engage in digital research and pedagogy. They have taken the lead in projects such as Pitt Education in Prisons (a pedagogical project bringing together Pitt undergrads with inmates), the Writing Studies Tree (an online, crowdsourced database of academic genealogies within writing studies), a new collaborative major with Computing and Information Science in Digital Narrative and Interactive Design, and DBLAC (a digital network and learning community of Black graduate students in composition, literature, and literacies).

We will be looking for colleagues who would find these commitments, interests, and affiliations congenial and bring to the department research projects and pedagogical practices that will enrich and transform them. Applicants must hold a PhD and demonstrate a record of substantial publication with at least one monograph, evidence of excellent teaching and commitment to first-year courses, evidence of institutional and professional engagement, and evidence of how their research, teaching or service demonstrates a commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Salary for the position will be competitive and commensurate with experience. The chair comes with a generous research and programming fund. The position will begin fall semester of 2019.

In order to receive full consideration applications must be received by November 1, 2018.

Please contact Don Bialostosky, Chair of the English Department, 526 Cathedral of Learning, Pittsburgh, PA 15260, with any questions. dhb2@pitt.edu. 412-624-6509.

Auburn University (AL) - Assistant/Associate Director of University WritingEdit

Position Summary Information

Auburn University seeks a full-time faculty administrator with education and experience in writing pedagogy and faculty development to serve as Assistant/Associate Director of University Writing. Rank and salary will be commensurate with experience and qualifications. This is a continuing 12-month, non-tenure track faculty position with faculty benefits. The position is located in the Office of University Writing (OUW), a unit which reports directly to the Provost and supports faculty and students across all Colleges with individual consultations and programs connected to writing and writing instruction, broadly defined to include all forms of communication. The OUW is also responsible for an outward-facing, integrative, professional ePortfolio Project.

We seek a dynamic educator with an interest in program administration and a commitment to, disciplinary training in, and experience with the intellectual work of two or more of the following: writing pedagogy, faculty development or the teaching of teachers, WAC/WID, writing center practice and administration, writing program administration. The successful candidate will join our team to promote writing of all types—including multi-media projects and integrative ePortfolios—and foster student learning through the use of writing across all disciplines. Candidates for this position must be able to promote writing in the disciplines in a variety of ways such as by offering workshops, designing new programs, or creating online resources for faculty and students. We also expect successful candidates to rotate into the role of supervising and training writing center consultants and to take a leadership role in sustaining and assessing existing programs. We are especially interested in candidates who bring additional skills and experience with English Language Learners; digital, oral, and multimodal communication pedagogy; or writing in STEM, Health Sciences, or design disciplines.

Underlying all of the work of the OUW is a recognition that embedding writing instruction in the disciplines requires thoughtful and strategic efforts that enhance the institutional culture of higher education. The Assistant/Associate Director’s primary responsibilities include working with the Director of University Writing, the OUW team, university partners, and faculty to:

  • support curricular revisions that include writing/communication activities, including ePortfolios, in departments and co-curricular programs
  • promote best practices associated with writing pedagogy (i.e., reflection, feedback, scaffolding, peer review)
  • encourage academic programs to expand their attention to graduate students as writers and as teachers of writing in the disciplines
  • provide appropriate and sustainable programs to support faculty in their own writing and publishing activities
  • produce scholarship that contributes to the larger conversations about higher education, the teaching of writing, and the implementation of ePortfolios by drawing on our local efforts and experiences and thereby enhancing Auburn University’s profile as a leader in writing and ePortfolios as high impact practices
  • attend to the needs of diverse student populations and the diverse faculty teaching in this environment
  • design, deliver, and assess these efforts aimed at faculty and students

Because the Assistant/Associate Director can expect to represent Auburn at relevant regional and national conferences, successful candidates should be able to demonstrate professional interest in the larger conversations about writing pedagogy in higher education, especially in connection to Writing Across the Curriculum and/or Writing In the Disciplines (WAC/WID), student learning, faculty engagement, and institutional transformation. Though a full-time administrative position, there are some opportunities for traditional classroom teaching through departments, the Honor’s College, and various interdisciplinary programs if appropriate credentials for these teaching assignments can be established and the need is present.
