The Sweetland Center for Writing at the University of Michigan seeks
applicants with a Ph.D. for two 100% LEO Lecturer III positions (pending
approval) to begin September 1, 2013. These are renewable non-tenure track
positions with an expected initial contract of four years. Full-time load is
three courses per semester or the equivalent in other duties.
A center for research as well as teaching, the Sweetland Center for Writing
offers a collegial environment of professionals who share a commitment to
writing instruction and to increasing knowledge about writing and learning.
Instructional duties will focus on teaching and developing writing courses for
undergraduate multilingual students and working one-on-one with multilingual
students in Sweetland’s Writing Workshop. Administrative responsibilities
include curriculum development, professional development for faculty across
the college, writing placement advising, outreach to units that work with
international students, and service on departmental committees.
Candidates should have a record of successful teaching of writing for
multilingual students, as well as theoretical grounding in composition and
rhetoric with an emphasis on multilingual writing. Areas of specialization may
include World Englishes, English for specific purposes, English language
learners, and similar fields. Also desirable is experience in one or more of
the following areas: writing across the curriculum and/or writing in the
disciplines; first-year writing; writing center pedagogies; and digital
literacies. Excellence in teaching and instructional service will be the
principal criteria used to select the successful candidates.
Successful candidates will have the opportunity to select from a variety of
other administrative and research areas. They can join ongoing, funded
research projects to study the factors that contribute to continued academic
success for multilingual writers and transfer students, electronic portfolio
use in transitional and upper-level writing contexts, and longitudinal studies
of student writers.
Terms and conditions of employment for this position may be subject to the
provisions of a Collective Bargaining Agreement between the University of
Michigan and the Lecturers’ Employee Organization. The University of Michigan
is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. Women and minorities are
