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: firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 email@example.com 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.
