Full-Time Faculty Lecturer Positions in Writing.
Application Closing Date: January 31, 2019

The English Department at John Jay College of Criminal Justice of the City University of New York (CUNY) invites applications for three full-time lecturer positions in Writing to begin September 2019. As a Majority-Minority Institution (MMI) and Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) in New York City, the College is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to our mission of educational justice for all students in our diverse community.

Successful candidates will join an award-winning writing program (CCCCs Certificate of Excellence 2013) and collaborate with an engaged full-time and adjunct writing faculty to play a crucial role in student academic success by designing and teaching courses in first-year writing as well as elective writing courses (such as professional and disciplinary writing). These new positions serve as a continued investment by the College to improve student contact with full-time faculty, especially during their first and second year. Student contact with experienced, enthusiastic pedagogues helps ensure that hundreds of students who flow through first-year courses each year will learn what they need to succeed in their studies at John Jay and beyond.
