Expository Writing Program
New York University

New York University’s Expository Writing Program (EWP) invites applications for the position of Director of Writing in the Disciplines, beginning September 1, 2018, subject to budgetary and administrative approval. This is a Continuing Contract Faculty position at the rank of clinical assistant professor. Initial appointment will be for a three-year term with the possibility of renewal for subsequent multi-year terms, as well as promotion in rank.

The Expository Writing Program is an independent academic unit within the College of Arts and Science, comprised of a vibrant faculty of over 100 writers and scholars. In collaboration with the Writing Center, Writing in the Disciplines is the primary outreach initiative of EWP.

The director will be charged with developing a vision and strategy for supporting writing in the disciplines and across the curriculum at NYU. Serving as part of EWP’s leadership team, the director will also work within EWP to enhance first-year writing instruction as a result of that institutional outreach and learning. Teaching load is one course per semester, with the expectation of administrative work over the summer. More information is available on EWP’s website.

Qualifications & Requirements
The successful candidate will have a demonstrated record of leadership in writing in the disciplines or writing across the curriculum, experience in building program initiatives, and excellence in teaching writing and/or writing-intensive courses. We are particularly interested in candidates with experience working effectively with faculty from a broad array of disciplines and diverse backgrounds. A PhD is preferred, although candidates with an EdD, MFA, or other appropriate terminal degree are encouraged to apply.

Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Applications received by December 1, 2017 will receive first consideration. To apply, submit a cover letter, including a statement of teaching philosophy and a discussion of your approach to WID/WAC work and program leadership; a cv; and names of three references. We welcome applicants who can collaborate with a range of faculty and advise a range of students, including historically underrepresented individuals (people of color, LGBTQ+ people, and people with disabilities).

Please apply online to: by December 1, 2017. If you have additional questions, please contact: Christine Jensch, Program Manager, Expository Writing Program
