New York University’s Expository Writing Program (EWP) invites applications for full-time Clinical Assistant Professors to teach intensive first-year writing courses across the university. We will be appointing up to 5 assistant professors on a rolling basis: start dates may be as early as January 1, 2023, or begin September 1, 2023. The final number and start date of positions is subject to budgetary and administrative approval. Applications submitted by Sept 11th, 2022, 5pm EST will receive full consideration for spring 2023 hiring and fall 2023 hiring. Applications submitted by January 10th, 2023, 5pm EST will receive full consideration for fall 2023 hiring.
Openings are for renewable full time, non-tenure track positions. Clinical Assistant Professor appointments are for three years, subject to renewal based upon a review and the recommendation of the department. Subsequent reappointment can be made for up to three years and include the possibility for promotion to Clinical Associate Professor, and, later, to Clinical Full Professor. Clinical Assistant Professors teach a 3-3 load, and all Expository Writing Program faculty are expected to participate in ongoing faculty development and program service. New faculty are required to attend a week-long intensive faculty orientation before the semester begins. NYU housing is not offered.
EWP is one of the largest writing programs in the United States, with 108 full-time faculty. Successful applicants will join a community of teachers strongly committed to pedagogical design and innovation. Our faculty have advanced degrees from a multitude of fields, and regardless, all have thought very carefully about how their disciplinary knowledge connects to and is enlarged by fundamental questions about rhetoric and writing.
Our current program needs include individuals with experience teaching multilingual and international students and/or teaching STEM-related writing.
Successful applicants will:
possess an advanced degree in their field of expertise (PhD, MFA, EdD).
have a minimum of three years of demonstrated high-level effectiveness in the college-level teaching of writing, creative writing, and/or other writing-intensive courses (preferably full-time) as the instructor of record prior to their appointment at EWP
have experience in designing curriculum that emphasizes inquiry, critical reading, inclusiveness, and creative thinking. We welcome teachers driven by a sense of writing community and collective inquiry.
be strong writers who have demonstrated an active commitment to writing in their field.
We are strongly committed to a diverse faculty and program. We believe a program’s excellence is tied to a breadth of perspective in its faculty, where diversity encompasses not only race, ethnicity, gender, class and ability but also rank, age, field of study, and institutional backgrounds. We welcome applicants who are committed to creating inclusive learning environments for a range of students, including historically underrepresented students.
Applications must include a 1-2 page cover letter, curriculum vitae, a 1-page statement of teaching philosophy, two letters of recommendation, a writing sample (of work in your field, no more than 2000 words, which can be unpublished or published), and 1-2 pages of teaching materials (either a lesson plan, assignment prompt, or writing resources) for a class you have taught. In your cover letter or teaching philosophy, please include a paragraph that discusses how diversity figures into your past and present teaching, research community engagement and/or life experiences, and suggests how you would bring issues of diversity to bear on the teaching and programming of NYU’s Expository Writing Program.
