Waldorf College seeks a full-time Assistant Professor of English to teach writing and direct first-year composition. A Ph.D. in composition / rhetoric is preferred, though a terminal degree in a closely-related field will be considered with extensive teaching experience and an evidenced passion for teaching first-year students. Responsibilities include directing the first-year composition sequence and (possibly) the campus writing center, as well as teaching developmental writing and composition. A secondary interest in introduction to literature, global literature, advanced composition, writing center tutor training, English secondary education, or online teaching is preferred. The position carries a 4/4 load, with release time depending on duties. Evidence of superior teaching is essential. Position begins August 2010. Review of applications continues until position is filled.
