The English Department at Baruch College of the City University of New York (CUNY) invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor line with a focus in Digital Media. The successful candidate will serve as the Associate Director of First-Year Writing beginning August 26, 2020.
The Associate Director of Composition will serve as a faculty administrator with reduced teaching responsibilities, collaborating with the Writing Program Director, other faculty, and Graduate Writing Fellows on curriculum development, personnel management, professional development, assessment, program research initiatives, and program operations. We especially seek candidates who focus on digital media in their research and teaching and who can contribute to a burgeoning concentration in rhetoric, writing, and linguistics in the department by developing and teaching courses in such areas as digital humanities, multimodal composing, advanced editing, and digital storytelling.
Tenure-track and tenured faculty teach 18 hours per academic year. Pre-tenure faculty are awarded a significant amount of reassigned time for the first five years and reduced teaching responsibilities, and faculty who hold administrative positions are granted additional reassigned time.
The College is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to our mission of educating one of the most diverse student bodies in the U.S. Successful candidates will collaborate with an engaged writing faculty to design and teach courses in first-year writing and upper division courses in rhetoric and writing.
Applicants must possess a Ph.D. by August 26, 2020, in Rhetoric and Composition, English, Technical or Professional Communication, or other related fields. Applicants should have experience teaching multiple first-year writing courses with preference for experience developing and teaching upper level writing and rhetoric courses. Evidence of teaching excellence is required. Previous writing program administration experience is preferred. The successful applicant will also demonstrate interest in continued professional development and research related to writing studies and writing program administration. Applicants also should have a good understanding of and experience with teaching a diverse student body.
