Writing Center Director and Other Positions

The American University of Iraq, Sulaimani (AUIS), a rapidly growing institution, invites applications for multiple positions at the rank of Lecturer or Assistant Professor in the Department of English, to begin Fall 2014. We seek to fill:

• One position that will include supervising the university’s Writing Center and working with other departments in Writing Across the Curriculum as well as teaching Rhetoric and Composition.

• One position with a specific emphasis on teaching technical writing.

• Additional positions in which teaching duties will consist principally of classes in our Composition sequence as well as general education humanities courses and courses in our English-Literature or English-Journalism majors.

To apply, please submit a CV, contact information for three references, and a cover letter that includes a description of how you would create/teach a general education course (in the humanities, sciences, or social sciences). All the department’s courses, including Composition and Civilization, allow faculty considerable flexibility in course design and selection of readings.
