Writing: Sessional, Assistant Professor

Faculty of Arts and Social Science

Huron University is completely unique to post-secondary institutions in Canada. With the aim to redefine Liberal Arts education, Huron is creating a university experience unlike any other that prioritizes ethical leadership and community engagement, as much as the pursuit of academic achievement.

As the founding institution of Western University, since 1863, Huron has remained strategically small to best serve the needs of its students. We provide an elite, yet accessible, education, because every student with the passion and work ethic to positively change our world deserves to access the knowledge to understand it and the skills to shape it. Huron’s mission is to develop Leaders with Heart from all backgrounds and foster a vibrant and inclusive community and prepare students to be engaged citizens who transform the sectors they work within. Our commitment to providing the best-possible Liberal Arts education means students have many unique opportunities to enrich their learning experiences.

The Faculty of Arts and Social Science at Huron University invites applications for a three-year Sessional Instructor of Writing to teach 3.0 courses per academic year through the fall and Winter sessions [September-April]. The successful candidate will be appointed at the rank of Assistant Professor and will teach, commencing July 1, 2019, from among the following courses, at the Dean’s discretion: Writing 0011F/G; 1021F/G; 1025F/G; and 2101F/G. There will also be the possibility for the development of new courses. A relevant PhD is preferred. A TESOL certificate or diploma, as well as a record of successful teaching, will be considered assets.

The deadline for applications is February 15, 2019. Qualified candidates should forward a letter of application, curriculum vitae, pedagogical dossier (statement of teaching philosophy, evidence of successful teaching), and contact information for three references who would be willing to write a letter of reference, if asked, to:
