Candidates should have a strong foundation in their discipline and experience teaching writing within the discipline and across an array of the platforms that figure in contemporary intellectual discourse. Teaching responsibilities for this position are five courses per year: a writing-intensive first-year seminar and four other writing-attentive courses with a public writing component in the home department; at least two of these courses will be team taught. Which courses the candidate teaches will depend on their field of specialization and the needs of the home department. A Ph.D. is expected by the time of appointment.
