Four New Lectureships at UNC Charlotte

The English Department at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte invites applications for four non-tenure-track, 9-month, renewable, full-time positions, as Lecturers in English, beginning August 2011. The positions carry a 4/4 teaching load and have primary responsibilities in the first-year writing program.

Eligible applicants must have a minimum of a Masters degree in Rhetoric and Composition or a related field, with experience teaching writing at the postsecondary level. Qualified candidates will exhibit a commitment to process pedagogy; an interest in, or experience with, incorporating technology into teaching & learning; and an understanding of how differing student literacies and cultural backgrounds relate to writing and learning. Those who are hired will be expected to innovate and evolve over time as they work among a community of teachers who view writing pedagogy as a shared intellectual endeavor.

For consideration, apply online at https://jobs.uncc.edu with a letter of application, a vita, a statement of teaching philosophy, two sample syllabi and names and contact information for three references.

Candidates invited to interview will be asked to provide an official transcript, a teaching portfolio, and three original letters of recommendation addressed to: Dr. Tony Scott, University of North Carolina Charlotte, 9201 University City Blvd., Charlotte, NC 28223.

Applicants are subject to criminal background checks.

We will begin screening applicants on December 3, 2010. Women and individuals from underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply. UNC Charlotte strives to create an academic climate in which the dignity of all individuals is respected and maintained. Therefore, we celebrate diversity that includes, but is not limited to ability/disability, age, culture, ethnicity, gender, language, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socio-economic status.
