Assistant Professor of Writing
The Department of Writing at Grand Valley State University is seeking to fill a full time tenure-track position beginning August 2014 with a specialty in playwriting. An MFA or Ph.D. in creative writing (or related field) is required by time of employment. The typical teaching load is 3 courses per semester which includes a range of courses in our curriculum, creative writing in particular, and sometimes first year composition. Candidates are required to demonstrate expertise in playwriting, shown by production/publication credits. We encourage candidates to indicate further preparation or expertise in other areas of our dynamic, newly revised modular curriculum that combines professional and creative writing. Publication and experience in nonfiction are especially desirable.
Please see our website for details about our curriculum and the range of writing courses we offer. All candidates should have a promising record of teaching, publication, and service in a university setting. Apply online at http://www.gvsujobs.org. Include CV and cover letter addressed to Professor Patricia Clark. The online application system will allow you to attach these documents electronically. If you need assistance or have questions, call Human Resources at 616-331-2215. Review of applications will begin November 4, 2013, and the position will remain open until filled. The position is contingent on available funding. We plan to interview invited candidates at the MLA convention in Chicago, IL in January ‘14. GVSU is an EO/AA institution.
