    Required qualifications are a PhD in Composition & Rhetoric, English, Communication Studies, or another related field, and the ability to teach courses in writing, in introductory speaking and listening, and within the College’s signature Integrated Studies sequence.

The faculty member will teach two courses per year, including the Writing Fellows (student tutors course), introductory communication, first-year argument and composition, or an Integrated Studies course.

We believe that this is an excellent opportunity for an engineering professor to help shape and build a new, innovative program in a creative way.  Our new professor will have deep interests in teaching and will continue to develop professionally in ways that support undergraduate students.  Post-doctoral and/or teaching experience is a plus.  Limited startup funds available.

    Located in the welcoming community of Monmouth, Illinois, the college is a member of the prestigious Associated Colleges of the Midwest. Following the adoption and implementation of a groundbreaking interdisciplinary general education curriculum and the continuation of a bold strategic plan titled “Think Anew, Act Anew,” the college is now prepared to move confidently forward as an innovator among liberal arts colleges.
