The Department of Literature, Composition, Media, and Communication (LCMC) at Texas A&M University – Texarkana invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track Assistant Professor of English to join our faculty beginning in the 2022-2023 academic year.

Texas A&M University – Texarkana, a member of the Texas A&M University System, is a dynamic and growing regional comprehensive university serving over 2,000 students. Since its founding in 1971 as East Texas State University, A&M-Texarkana has been known for its emphasis on student-centered, experiential education. Expanding in 2010 from upper-division undergraduate and master’s programs to lower-division undergraduate and doctoral offerings, the campus has maintained its friendly atmosphere, small class sizes, and commitment to traditional and non-traditional students. A comprehensive student life program ensures a full collegiate experience for residential students, and an annual thematic community engagement program offers educational enrichment for the campus and wider community.

Our undergraduate English curriculum includes two degree-granting programs (a B.A. in English and a B.S. in English) as well as two teacher preparation degrees (English, Language Arts, and Reading grades 4-8 and grades 7-12). Our M.A. in English includes a literature concentration and rhetoric/composition concentration with a forthcoming English education concentration. The successful candidate will demonstrate a willingness and ability to teach across a range of courses in composition and writing, particularly our courses in the first-year writing sequence, contribute to course and program design; provide service to the program, department, and University; and engage in scholarship that complements that of existing faculty. Course load reduction is available in the first year of employment.

We encourage BIPOC, women, and candidates from other historically marginalized or underrepresented groups to apply.

Minimum Qualifications:

+ Earned doctorate in English; Writing Studies; Rhetoric & Composition; or English Education (Ph.D. must be in-hand by time of appointment)

+ At least two years of teaching writing in a higher education setting (graduate teaching as sole instructor-of-record and adjunct teaching experience are acceptable)

Preferred Qualifications:

+ Experience teaching courses in developmental writing, first-year composition, and/or technical writing.

+ Professional development, training, certification, and/or experience in antiracist pedagogies, multiculturalism, and/or Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) principles and practices.

OPEN UNTIL 05/29/2022.

To apply: Upload your cover letter, resume/CV, 3 professional references with contact information and with one reference being a supervisor/manager and copies of your transcripts in the questionnaire section of your application.
