University of Colorado-Boulder: New to Advanced Assistant Professor, Cultural Rhetorics[]

The Program for Writing and Rhetoric (PWR) at the University of Colorado Boulder seeks a beginning to advanced junior tenure-track Assistant Professor of Cultural Rhetorics to begin Fall 2023. We seek a humanities scholar who specializes in critical approaches to race, ethnicity, culture, embodiment, and/or decolonialism with strong interests in public rhetoric and/or the engaged humanities. The person hired for this position will help develop PWR’s upper-division initiatives to enhance students’ critical understandings of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, culture, and power. We are particularly interested in a scholar who can contribute to the ongoing development of the WRITE Lab and help grow a new Writing and Public Engagement (WPE) minor that is housed in English but spearheaded by the WRITE lab and taught by both PWR and English faculty. In addition, this hire may contribute to lower-division offerings that support new PWR pipeline initiatives with local and regional K-12 school systems that aim to serve the needs of first-generation and historically underrepresented students on the CU-Boulder campus.

The successful candidate will demonstrate a clear commitment to research, teaching, and inclusive excellence as well as a strong interest in publicly engaged scholarship and pedagogy, curricular development, and program-building. We invite candidates to apply who have a PhD in Rhetoric and/or Writing Studies as well as a closely related or adjacent field with demonstrated experience teaching writing as a publicly engaged practice in a higher ed setting. We especially welcome candidates with expertise in ethnic studies, Latin American Studies, African American Studies, and/or Women and Gender studies. The University of Colorado Boulder is committed to building a culturally diverse community of faculty, staff, and students dedicated to contributing to an inclusive campus environment. We are an Equal Opportunity employer, including veterans and individuals with disabilities.

Who We Are

PWR is an autonomous unit in the College of Arts and Sciences and a nationally recognized writing program that has won prestigious awards in diversity and inclusion, sustainability, service learning, and writing program administration. Our faculty comprise an active community of scholars, teachers, and writers committed to researching contemporary and historical practices of rhetoric and writing as well as making public writing central to undergraduate education. PWR faculty—both tenure track and teaching professors—have a strong record of publishing in rhetoric, composition, communication, creative nonfiction, poetry, fiction, and other areas and strive to make a difference locally, nationally, and transnationally through their research and professional development.

The WRITE Lab constitutes a faculty research space housed within PWR that explores 21st century writing practices through innovative, inclusive, and interdisciplinary studies at the intersection of writing, rhetoric, information, technology, and ecology. In theory and method, WRITE Lab faculty disclose how various modes of composing and performance engender identities, informatics, publics, policies, literacies, civic participation, and cultural action in local and globalized settings. By bringing together scholars, artists, students, teachers, activists, and community leaders, WRITE Lab faculty strive to develop the engaged humanities on and beyond campus through research grants, curricular development such as the newly spearheaded WPE minor, and other cross-campus projects such as the 2022-2023 Event Series in Art, Activism, and the Engaged Humanities. We seek a candidate who can help enhance and extend the research parameters of the Lab, develop the Lab’s local and national profile, and generate innovative curricular, professional, and publicly engaged opportunities for folks both on and off the CU Boulder campus.

What Your Key Responsibilities Will Be

The Cultural Rhetorics position is rostered in the PWR and affiliated with English, both units of which are situated in the College of Arts and Sciences at CU Boulder. The annual teaching load is 2/2, with significant time off in the first four years to further develop a research agenda that not only contributes to the candidate’s fields of study on a national scale but also to the WRITE Lab on the CU Boulder campus.

The person hired for this position will help extend PWR’s upper division initiatives that strive to enhance undergraduate study and practice of cultural rhetorics. We welcome inventive courses that explore the intersectional dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender, class, sexual orientation, and power and have theoretical and practical applications for public engagement. Through such curricular development, the candidate will contribute to the new WPE minor. This minor, taught by faculty in PWR and English, aims to help students hone the rhetorical arts of persuasive writing and public engagement by offering courses in three overlapping areas: theory, practice, and action. Through an 18-credit curriculum, students learn how to develop conceptual habits necessary for civic engagement; write in diverse genres for diverse purposes and public audiences; leverage a wide variety of digital technologies to design, produce, and distribute multimodal compositions; write in professional settings and with community partners; and write collaboratively for social change. Our ideal candidate will play a major role in delivering this curriculum and further developing the minor so that it attracts, meets the needs of, and retains a diverse body of WPE minors.

This candidate will also have the opportunity to contribute to several pilot programs aimed at expanding the CU-Boulder pipeline to local and regional K-12 school districts in ways that serve first-generation students, students of color, and others typically underrepresented at CU-Boulder. PWR is currently piloting a set of for-credit writing courses with the CU-Boulder Pre-Collegiate Bridge Program, which serves as both a student-support and community-building program for newly admitted students. We are simultaneously developing a Dual Enrollment writing program that will serve rising juniors in the local Boulder Valley School District (BVSD). Our ideal candidate would show strong interest in these and other campus, local, and regional efforts.

Teaching Assistant Professor as the Writing Center Outreach Coordinator (Composition Program, English Department)[]

The Department of English at the University of Pittsburgh is seeking to hire a faculty member at the Teaching Assistant Professor rank to serve as Writing Center Outreach Coordinator and teach composition courses. The Teaching Assistant Professor hired in this search will begin on a three-year renewable contract, starting in the fall term of 2023. The teaching load is 3/3, split between Writing Center administration/tutoring and teaching courses in the Composition program, plus expected service such as committee work and advising undergraduate research. Teaching Assistant Professors are outside the tenure track but have paths to promotion, leadership positions, and five-year renewable contracts.

The Writing Center serves writers across the University community, including undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and staff. It hosts Writers’ Café (a craft-focused series of workshops for those who are interested in creative writing) and International Café (workshops that explore writing topics and academic culture with international students). The tutors of the Writing Center are full-time and part-time Composition faculty, undergraduate peer tutors, and English Department, graduate students. The Writing Center typically sees 3500-4000 appointments in a term, plus hundreds of contacts via outreach events, and it offers both in-person and online synchronous appointments. It is a large and complex program. Tutors appreciate the sense of community cultivated in the Writing Center. At monthly meetings, tutors tackle ongoing concerns and often discuss scholarships in the field. Faculty and peer tutors participate in regional and national conferences. The Writing Center and its outreach programs are well-established, though we welcome new ideas. The responsibilities of the Writing Center Outreach Coordinator include running outreach programming (including workshops and events for undergraduates, graduate students, staff, and faculty), maintaining the web presence of the Writing Center, helping to promote events, supporting new and existing programs of the Writing Center, and tutoring as time allows. We prefer candidates with experience in writing centers, an investment in a writing center scholarship, and the ability to learn new software (the University will provide basic training in editing our Drupal website).

The Composition program–one of four constituent programs in English (Literature, Creative Writing, and Film)–offers an array of first-year composition courses and a Public and Professional Writing major and certificate. Our courses are also integral to the Digital Narrative and Interactive Design joint major with the School of Computing and Information, the Public Communication of Science and Technology certificate, and a new interdisciplinary Disability Studies Certificate. We value flexible teachers who can create engaging courses that respond to the needs of our programs and to school-wide general education requirements. In addition to the Writing Center work described above, the Teaching Assistant Professor hired for this job is likely to regularly teach a version of our first-year composition course and/or courses in one or more of these areas: digital media, legal and policy writing, medical and health writing, science and technical writing, writing in advertising and public relations, professional writing, Black rhetorics, and disability studies. As a department that values inclusive and welcoming environments in which to work and learn, we are interested in hearing from candidates whose lived experiences would prove resourceful in mentoring students of diverse backgrounds, including students of color, LGBTQ+ students, first-generation college students, and students with disabilities.

Applicants must hold a terminal degree (Ph.D. or MFA) in English or a related field by the time of appointment (September 1, 2023) and demonstrate evidence of excellent teaching and a commitment to undergraduate courses pertinent to these positions; institutional and professional engagement; and commitment to diversity and inclusion in their teaching and service. Salary will be competitive and commensurate with experience and benefits are generous.

Applications must include the following, submitted through the University's Talent Center system by November 21, 2022:

  • Cover letter
  • C.V.
  • Teaching statement
  • Statement on diversity (1-2 pp.) that demonstrates your past and/or potential contributions to diversity and inclusion through teaching and service.
  • A teaching portfolio that includes sample syllabi for two courses and at least two writing assignments or sequences (other teaching materials from these classes, such as in-class workshops practices, are welcome)
  • Student surveys for three classes

As candidates progress through the search process, the committee may request 3 confidential letters of recommendation from individuals familiar with the candidate’s teaching.

Rolling Deadline. Begins review of application February 13.

The Department of Rhetoric, Writing, & Public Discourse at Whitman College seeks to hire two faculty members at the rank of Visiting Assistant Professor for the 2023-2024 academic year. The positions will begin in August 2023. A Ph.D. in Communication Studies, Rhetoric & Composition, English, or a related field is required by the beginning of the academic year. Both positions carry a teaching load of 5 courses per year.

Whitman’s department of Rhetoric, Writing & Public Discourse is an interdisciplinary program that spans traditions of rhetorical inquiry such as Communication Studies and Writing Studies & Composition. Our department’s approach to the study of rhetoric is grounded in a commitment to social justice. We are especially interested in candidates who can complement our department’s strengths in the areas of gender, race, sexuality, class, and disability studies.

Successful candidates for the first position will teach the department’s introductory course, which is primarily focused on rhetorical criticism, and a course focused on communication and writing in the sciences. Successful candidates for the second position will teach the department’s upper-level rhetorical theory course as well as the department’s offerings in public speaking and argumentation.

In addition to teaching core department courses, candidates for both positions will have the opportunity to teach several electives commensurate with their academic specialty. We particularly welcome applications from candidates who specialize in one or more of the following areas: feminist and queer rhetorics, rhetorics of gender and sexuality, environmental communication, rhetorical studies of science and technology, indigenous rhetorics, global/transnational rhetorical theories and practices, Asian/Asian American rhetorics, Latina/o/x rhetorics, and rhetorical theories of (de)coloniality.

Whitman College is committed to cultivating a diverse learning community. Applicants should be able to demonstrate their commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion and articulate how their classroom and scholarly practices work to advance antiracism in the learning environment. This statement can be included in the cover letter or the teaching statement. In their cover letter, candidates should address their interest in working at a liberal arts college with undergraduates and non-majors at all levels of instruction.

Located in the historic community of Walla Walla, Whitman’s beautiful tree-lined campus is home to an intellectually diverse, dynamic, and supportive community of some 500 staff and faculty serving roughly 1,500 students from the local region and across the globe. With exceptional students, accomplished faculty and staff, along with a fiercely loyal and growing number of engaged alumni, Whitman College continues to build on its national reputation for academic excellence as one of the top liberal arts colleges in the country.

  • The University of Louisiana at Lafayette request for additional materials 2/27
    • Holding campus visits early April.
  • Olivet College holding Zoom interviews the first two weeks in April.
  • Anyone willing to share an example of what the timeline looks like between campus visit and offer? I know it can vary, but I'm curious to know what's typical.
    • I can offer a bit of perspective: For my first job two years ago, it took around 3 weeks from my interview to my offer. I completed a campus visit during the end of Feb, and the school hopes to be in contact with whoever earns the final offer by the week’s end. A school I interviewed with in February (not at campus visit stage yet) said it would likely take a month from visit to final offer, due to admin policies and how quickly it takes the university to approve a contract offer/iron out final details, like max salary.
    • Spring jobs can be complicated by midterm/spring breaks.
  • Question: I had a campus visit recently, and the search chair said he’d be in contact within two weeks. Two weeks have passed (barely), but I wanted to ask what the ‘rules’ are for reaching out to universities after you’ve met with them. Is it okay to contact them, or do we wait to hear from them? I’m worried I’ll be looked negatively upon if I do.
  • As nerve-racking as it is, the advice I've gotten is to hold off on reaching out. I’m still waiting to hear back from schools I’ve visited, but all the search chairs sent me an update 2-4 weeks post-visit. Each email stated something to the extent of delays in extending an offer to the finalist, and I’d hear from them “soon.” I agree with the person who wrote that spring break and midterms are lengthening the waiting time. Also, some places I've interviewed at have had weather so bad that it's shut down their campus for a day or two. It's also possible that some of these searches are the first search for a new hire in years. Things may have changed since the department's last hire. It has to relearn or adjust to the bureaucratic nature of hiring or the tension/politics existing between it and the higher-ups. I’m ABD and this is my first time on the job market, so take from that what you will. I feel ya though--hope you hear back soon!
    • Thanks for this! It has made me feel a lot better. Admittedly, I've been anxious because I have another campus visit, and I'd rather avoid having to pay for travel again/hope its fully reimbursed.
  • Any word on the impact of the hiring freeze mandated by the CUNY chancellor on the various lecturer positions in Rhet/Comp across the CUNY System?
