Department of English at The Ohio State University is searching for an assistant professor to join the Rhetoric, Composition, and Literacy Studies program starting in the autumn of 2018.
Our new colleague will teach courses at our Mansfield campus and coordinate our Minor in Professional Writing at Mansfield. Candidates should have a primary or secondary area of expertise in Professional Writing; additional specializations in Digital Media, Literacy Studies, or Writing Program Administration are desirable. Preferred qualifications include experience teaching members of underrepresented groups or first-generation students.
English faculty at Mansfield teach in a multi-disciplinary small-college environment but are integrated members of the OSU Department of English. Throughout the probationary period, tenure-track faculty at regional campuses receive support and mentoring in teaching, research, and administration from colleagues at all campuses.
Teaching responsibilities for this position include courses in business and technical writing as well as the minor’s internship preparation and support courses. Teaching will also include other introductory, intermediate, and advanced courses in the faculty member’s areas of specialization.
Applicants should submit a letter of application, CV, sample of scholarship, and three letters of recommendation through Interfolio by October 15, 2017. The full position description and application instructions are available at the following link: https://apply.interfolio.com/44544
