The Department of English invites applications for 2 full-time, non-tenure-track faculty positions, beginning fall term 2024. We are seeking dynamic teachers with demonstrated experience designing courses in academic writing.
Lecturers in English teach 4 classes per semester, 3 courses in first-year writing and another in your specialty. Writing courses are typically capped at 16 students. Our first-year writing curriculum allows considerable freedom to design courses with a topic of your choice. Lecturers are not required to do research and have limited service requirements, but have full access to faculty development opportunities, including support from our Endeavour Center for Teaching and Learning and grants for travel and professional development. Lecturers at Rollins have the opportunity to advance to the position of Senior Lecturer.
Our department is actively in conversation about how generative AI tools will reshape what we mean by “writing competency” and we’re excited to welcome new voices into that discussion.
