Title: Lecturer in Public Speaking
Date Needed: August 2018

Description: The Department of English at Hartwick College invites applications for a part-time appointment at the rank of instructor starting in August 2018, pending final administrative approval. We seek candidates with expertise in teaching the principles of public speaking, including the ability to create and deliver a well-structured, rhetorically effective speech or statement; to master listening techniques; to analyze the constituent parts of an effective speech; to engage in research techniques that support the crafting of context- and audience-specific communication. Applicants able to teach digital media applications for public speaking—specifically, the ability to create audio postcards, podcasts and online videos—are particularly sought. The successful candidate will possess a minimum of an M.A. and should be able to demonstrate not only experience in teaching principles of public speaking but also a commitment to excellence, innovation, and diversity in undergraduate teaching. Candidates must be prepared to teach on a three-day-per-week (MWF) schedule.

Hartwick College is committed to providing a safe and secure educational environment. Employment at Hartwick College is therefore contingent upon a successful background check of every new employee. Candidates to whom an offer of employment is made will be required to sign a Release of Information Form authorizing the College to conduct a thorough background check.

To apply, please send:

  • cover letter
  • curriculum vitae
  • statements of teaching philosophy and research interests
  • Diversity Statement – a statement addressing how past and/or potential contributions to diversity will support Hartwick College’s Diversity Statement (https://www.hartwick.edu/campus-life/intercultural-affairs/diversity-at-hartwick/)
  • and the names and contact information for three references (at least one of your references must be from a current and/or previous supervisor)

All materials should be sent electronically to [email protected] with Public Speaking in the subject line. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
