The Writing Program at Haverford College is seeking two Writing Fellows for 2017-18.
Haverford College will hire two Writing Fellows for the College Writing Program in academic year 2017-18. We solicit applications in different fields and disciplines in the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences. We are particularly interested in postdoctoral candidates who bring expertise in public speaking and oral communication; writing as social practice; science writing; or digital writing, etc., and who are prepared to teach and closely interact with a diverse student body. Our first year seminars, however, are focused upon the academic essay and candidates should demonstrate experience in teaching this kind of writing. Successful candidates will infuse the seminars with fresh intellectual energy that reflects current scholarship in the field. Fellows will teach four first-year writing seminars, two in each semester, and have limited additional responsibilities in the program, such as developing different kinds of writing workshops to be offered through the Writing Center to the student body at large. Fellows also read placement essays from the incoming first year class with the Director of the Writing Program. The fellowship is for one year, renewable for up to three years (inclusive); the salary is competitive and includes benefits. A Ph.D. is required at time of appointment or ABD with plans to defend by the conclusion of the first year of the appointment. To qualify for appointment, applicants will have held the degree for no more than six years. Please submit a letter of application, a current CV, three letters of recommendation, and a brief writing sample via http://apply.interfolio.com/40307 by March 3, 2017.
