Job Description Summary

Barnard College invites applications for one full-time Lecturer position in the First-Year Writing (FYW) Program. FYW teaches the skills of academic writing and critical inquiry to all Barnard students and prepares them for the rigors of Barnard's liberal arts education in all disciplines. This is a renewable faculty position with an initial contract of three years beginning in July 2022. Lecturers will teach a 3/3 course load in FYW and will work with the Director of FYW on program development, including activities that develop pedagogical and programmatic connections with peer institutions and help to establish Barnard as a leader in writing pedagogy. Lecturers also advise students, serve on College committees, and may be asked to assist in program administration.

Successful applicants will have a terminal degree in hand by May 2022 and a background and demonstrated expertise in writing pedagogy, with reference letters that speak to that expertise.
