Writing Fellows, Haverford College

Haverford College will hire two Writing Fellows for the College Writing Program in academic year 2014-15. We solicit applications in different fields and disciplines in the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences. We are particularly interested in postdoctoral candidates who bring expertise in public speaking and oral communication; writing as social practice; science writing; or digital writing, etc., and who are prepared to teach a diverse student body. Our first year seminars, however, are focused upon the academic essay and candidates should demonstrate experience in teaching this kind of writing specifically. Fellows will teach four first year writing seminars, two in each semester, and have limited additional responsibilities in the program, largely developing different kinds of writing workshops. Successful candidates will infuse the seminars with fresh intellectual energy that reflects current scholarship in the field. The fellowship is for one year, renewable for up to three years (inclusive); the salary is competitive and includes benefits. A Ph.D. is required at time of appointment or ABD with plans to defend by the conclusion of the first year of the appointment. The successful applicant will have held the degree for no more than six years. Women and members of underrepresented minority groups are strongly encouraged to apply. Please send a letter of application, a current CV, three letters of recommendation, and a brief writing sample via Interfolio by April 21, 2014, or via Carol Henry, search secretary, at chenry@haverford.edu.
