First-Year Writing Faculty, St. John's University

Position Announcements

Full-time Writing Faculty to teach first-year composition.

St. John's University invites applications for contract faculty positions on our campuses in Queens and Staten Island, New York to begin late August 2006. These are full-time, non-tenure-track positions, renewable annually up to six times for a total of seven years. Faculty receive the same medical and dental benefits as tenure-track faculty. Salaries are contingent upon teaching experience and degrees, but will generally be in the low-50k range for candidates with doctorates, and in the mid-40k range for candidates without.

Candidates will teach 3-3 loads of first-year composition. Candidates will be expected to hold regular conferences with students, as well as play a role in developing new Writing Across the Curriculum initiatives by participating in writing pedagogy workshops for faculty throughout the University. Candidates should have experience teaching composition and graduate course experience in composition theory and writing pedagogy.

Applications will be accepted immediately and on a rolling basis, although we will start scheduling interviews early in the Spring 2006 semester. Interviews will be conducted at the Conference on College Composition and Communication or on the Queens campus. Candidates should submit a letter of application, CV, a statement of teaching philosophy, and at least three letters of recommendation to:
