Writing in the Liberal Arts Postdoctoral Fellow
Davidson College is seeking a person to teach in its College Writing Program, which focuses on the production of intellectual and academic discourses in the public and scholarly spheres. This individual (PhD required in the Sciences, Social Sciences, or Humanities) will annually teach three first-year writing courses designed around issues that are of interest to both disciplinary practitioners and wider readerships, and two writing-attentive courses that examine the traditions of inquiry and modes of scholarly exchange particular to the fellow’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 innovation, service, and leadership in its students. The position provides opportunities to examine how discourse informs civic argument, cultural critique, or scientific inquiry in the liberal-educational tradition. The length of appointment is two years.
Applicants should apply online and submit a letter of interest, a CV, and a writing sample (no longer than 10 pages in length).
Davidson College is strongly committed to achieving excellence and cultural diversity, and welcomes applications from women, members of minority groups, and others who would bring additional dimensions to the college’s mission.
Questions should be directed to Dr. Van Hillard at vahillard AT davidson.edu.
