Visiting Assistant Professor of Writing and Rhetoric


Davidson College is seeking a person to teach in its Writing Program, which supports the teaching of intellectual and academic discourses in its first-year courses and in writing-attentive courses across the college (http://www.davidson.edu/academics/writing-program). The individual (PhD required in the Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, or Humanities) will annually teach three first-year writing courses designed around issues of interest both to the wide reading public and to scholars, and two writing-attentive or rhetoric-intensive courses that examine the traditions of inquiry and modes of scholarly exchange particular to the applicant's home discipline.

The position will be attractive to those interested in undergraduate pedagogy, curricular design, and intellectual life in a select liberal arts setting that values innovative thinking, the interdependence of public and scholarly action, and deliberative leadership in its students. The position provides opportunities to examine how intellectual discourse informs civic argument, cultural critique, or scientific inquiry in the liberal-educational tradition. Starting on July 1, 2017, the appointment lasts two years, with the possibility of renewal for a third.

Review of applications begins March 31, and continues until a pool of finalists has been identified. Applicants should apply online at http://employment.davidson.edu and include a letter of interest and a CV.

Davidson College is a highly selective, independent liberal arts college located in Davidson. North Carolina, close to the city of Charlotte. The College has graduated 23 Rhodes Scholars and is consistently ranked among the top liberal arts colleges in the country. Davidson faculty enjoy a low faculty-student ratio and a collegial, respectful atmosphere that honors academic achievement and integrity. Davidson College is strongly committed to achieving excellence and cultural diversity, and welcomes applicants from women, members of minority groups, and others who would bring additional dimensions to the College's mission.
