Teaching assignments are in English Composition and/or Entry-Level Writing classes, including ESL. Salary is based on an annual full-time rate of $64,329 ( $8,041.13 per section.)

The University Writing Program is known for its collegiality, the high morale of its instructors, and its engagement with undergraduates, many of them first-generation students, who are striving for a better life. Although reappointment after a lecturer's initial appointment is not automatic, our program has a strong record of retaining effective instructors. To ensure that our students receive the appropriate level of instruction to succeed in a demanding academic environment, our placement system is mandatory and our grading standards are program-wide.
An application letter, CV, verification of credentials (diploma, official transcripts, etc.,) self-statement explaining your Composition pedagogy, statement of diversity, most recent student evaluations that cover an academic year, and two current letters of recommendation are required. Materials related to teaching (e.g. syllabi and sample assignments) might be useful additions to the application file.
