Thank you for your interest, but the Expository Writing Program currently has no openings for lecturers.

Full-time lecturers teach two topic-based seminars per term. Lecturers also participate in our faculty development program, which includes orientation meetings and workshops in May and late August, as well as meetings on writing pedagogy during fall and spring semesters.

We encourage applications from candidates in all fields of study, but especially in the sciences and social sciences. Candidates should have a demonstrated excellence in the teaching of college writing. The PhD and experience in teaching topics-based writing courses are preferred. Contracts are yearly for five years, and renewable.


Candidates must apply online through Interfolio with the following documents:

  • Cover letter, explaining your interest in teaching writing and your relevant experience
  • Course proposal, describing your proposed seminar in 200–250 words
  • CV
  • Writing sample (please limit to 10 pages; excerpts are fine)
  • Three letters of reference.
