The Department of English and Film Studies at the University of Alberta invites applications from outstanding candidates for a senior faculty position (Associate Professor with tenure) in the field of Composition and Rhetoric, specializing in writing pedagogy and in writing centre research, theory, and practice. Intensive experience or training in teaching writing to students for whom English is an additional language (EAL) would be an asset.
