seeking assistant professor applicants
Texas Tech's TCR program invites applications for two positions at the rank of Assistant Professor (9-month) to begin August 2016. While we are looking for the best and the brightest applicants from the world of writing studies, rhetoric, and technical communication, we are especially interested in new colleagues who specialize in multimodal composition, visual rhetorics, information design, social media, distance education, digital rhetorics, and/or usability/UX. In addition, we are very interested in how these specialties are enacted in the public or social sphere. The full job description (requisition #5408BR) and application portal are available at the TTU jobs site. Initial application requires a letter of application and vita. Letters of recommendation will be solicited later from exceptionally qualified candidates. Review will begin November 1. Direct inquiries to the chair of the search committee, Joyce Carter.
