A ten-month, tenure-track position beginning in August, 2006, for a Ph.D. with a strong and varied record of graduate courses in composition and rhetoric and with a passion for writing pedagogy. Primary responsibilities include teaching two courses each academic year in our first-year composition program and working with faculty from across the curriculum to develop their abilities to teach writing.
