Writing Program Visiting Lectureship in TESOL/Writing

The Writing Program at Wellesley College invites applications for a full-time, 2-year, renewable visiting lectureship in writing with specialization in ESOL to begin Fall 2010.   Job responsibilities include teaching first-year composition in our interdisciplinary, theme-based writing program; providing ESL tutoring for students; and providing English-language workshops and support for writing instructors, tutors, and faculty in the disciplines.   Teaching load is 5 courses annually, of which one is weekly one-on-one tutoring hours.  PhD in TESOL, composition/rhetoric, applied linguistics, or related degree is strongly preferred, as is experience teaching writing to a multilingual population.  We are especially interested in candidates with expertise and interest in writing across the curriculum, writing in the sciences or social sciences, and/or public speaking, though our courses cover a range of innovative subject matter.


Interested applicants are asked to submit curriculum vitae, writing sample, statement of teaching philosophy, summaries of teaching evaluations and the names/email addresses of three references through our on-line application system at https://career.wellesley.edu. We will begin reviewing applications January 15, 2010 and continue until the position is filled.  If circumstances make it impossible to submit any materials electronically, email working@wellesley.edu for assistance. Wellesley College is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer, and we are committed to increasing the diversity of the college community and the curriculum. Candidates who believe they can contribute to these goals are encouraged to apply.
