Job Opening: Assistant Professor—Digital Humanities/Rhetoric and Composition, Fall 2014

Assistant Professor—Digital Humanities/Rhetoric and Composition, Fall 2014

The University of Maryland, Baltimore County seeks a tenure-track assistant professor specializing in Digital Humanities/Rhetoric and Composition to begin in the English Department in Fall 2014. The successful candidate should have a promising publishing agenda, proven excellence in the classroom, and Ph.D. in hand by August 2014.

The English Department desires a colleague whose research and pedagogy speak to the areas of Rhetoric and Composition, as well as the Digital Humanities, broadly conceived. Areas of specialty might include, but are by no means limited to, digital diversity, data/text mining, digital rhetorics and new media production. The successful candidate will be invited to contribute to department initiatives, including the new Master’s program in Texts, Technologies and Literature and the continued development of our dynamic, innovative first-year composition program. The English Department offers undergraduate tracks in both Communication & Technology (CT) and Literature, as well as a Master’s program in Texts, Technologies and Literature. The teaching load is currently 2/3, and every junior faculty member is entitled to 2 course releases, usually following contract renewal. Additional opportunities for reduced teaching loads exist. We are especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the track requirements in CT and, in keeping with a departmental commitment to a diverse curriculum, also develop new courses.

Ranked #1 in the U.S. News and World Report's list of "national up-and-coming" universities for four years running (2009-2012), UMBC is a dynamic public research university located in the Baltimore-Washington corridor. The campus, with almost 14,000 undergraduate and graduate students, reflects the wealth of ethnic and cultural diversity in the region. UMBC is especially proud of the diversity of its student body, and we seek to attract an equally diverse applicant pool for this position. We have a strong commitment to increasing faculty diversity.

Please send letter of interest, curriculum vitae, and three letters of reference to Professor Jody Shipka, English Department, University of Maryland Baltimore County, 1000 Hilltop Circle, Baltimore MD 21250. Application materials should be postmarked no later than October 15. Review of applications will begin immediately. Interviews will be conducted using Skype or phone.

UMBC is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
