Adjunct Opportunities in the NY Metro Area (Pace University)

Hi all, I received the following note and am posting it here as it might be a great opportunity for some of you to get some experience:

The Pace University Department of English and Modern Language Studies, in Pleasantville, New York, has a number of adjunct faculty positions available for the 2015-2016 academic year, which begins September 2, 2015.  Successful candidates will teach freshman or sophomore-level composition courses, and will be mentored by the Director and Associate Director of Composition.  A Master of Arts in English is required; familiarity with composition and rhetoric pedagogy preferred.  Interested candidates may direct questions and application materials to Professor Andrew Stout, Associate Director of Composition, via email:  A complete application will include a cover letter and CV in one PDF document.  The deadline for applications is June 1, 2015. 

Let me know at if you need any help or advice about putting together your CV or application, for Pace or for any teaching opportunity. I’m happy to review anyone’s CV and give you some pointers. You should note that all of us begin as adjuncts (part-time professor). Every professor you’ve ever had started at some point as an adjunct/part-time prof.

Macbeth at Mercy College: Thursday April 16th at 7:45pm. FREE with Reservation.

As part of Mercy College’s annual Christie Day event, which is the English Program’s year-end celebration and Shakespeare Festival, a seriously good Shakespeare company, Hudson Valley Shakespeare (HVS), is putting on a presentation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth here at the Dobbs Ferry campus on Thursday, 4/16, 7:45pm. Tickets are free but you need to RSVP to the head of undergraduate English, Dr. Alison Matika, to reserve them. The small campus theatre where this is being held is more than half reserved so anyone interested should email Dr. Matika immediately at to reserve tickets (will call). And I encourage anyone even remotely in the area to attend. This is going to be great fun.
