The Department of Humanities, Social Sciences, and the Arts (HSSA) at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology seeks candidates for a tenure-track assistant professorship in Writing to begin August 2023. By then, candidates must hold a Ph.D. or other terminal degree in English, Rhetoric & Composition, or any closely related field, and must demonstrate potential for excellence in undergraduate teaching. The person we hire will normally teach four sections of writing courses each year, plus four elective sections in their areas of expertise, and will be expected to contribute meaningfully to their academic field. As a department revisiting its writing requirements, we are open to candidates with experience across the humanities and social sciences and arts with interest and ability in teaching first-year writing. Candidates should exhibit a personal and professional commitment to diversity and inclusion through teaching, research, and service.
Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology is one of the nation’s top undergraduate engineering, science, and mathematics colleges. Our campus in west-central Indiana is home to 2,100 students with a passion for learning. Our mission is to offer these students “the world’s best undergraduate science, engineering and mathematics education in an environment of individual attention and support.” This attention means small class sizes. Our new assistant professor will join a diverse, multidisciplinary liberal arts department that teaches all Rose-Hulman students, offering many popular minors and a second major in International Studies. Our department is especially committed to equity and inclusion in our course offerings, our co-curricular activities, and in our service and professional development. The department and the Institute see it as imperative to engage students from traditionally underrepresented groups. Candidates from these groups are especially encouraged to apply.
To apply, please submit a cover letter, CV, a statement of teaching philosophy, and a diversity, equity, and inclusion statement to https://jobs.rose-hulman.edu. Applications must be made online.
After a preliminary review, the following materials may be requested: evidence of teaching effectiveness, and three letters of reference. Review of applications will begin on December 21, 2022, and continue until the position is filled.
For questions about the application system, please contact Human Resources at 812-877-8153. For questions about the position itself, please contact the Chair of the Department of Humanities, Social Sciences and the Arts (HSSA), Dr. Richard House, at [email protected]
