Each year we offer postdoctoral teaching fellowships for faculty interested in teaching small, inquiry-based, writing-intensive seminars. We seek candidates with a Ph.D. in any field, a demonstrated commitment to undergraduate teaching, and experience teaching writing. Fellows are asked to draw on their disciplinary expertise and interests to design seminar-style courses that emphasize intellectual inquiry, critical thinking, and academic writing. In addition to leading their own seminars, SAGES Teaching Fellows provide mentoring and support to seminar leaders who request it, as well as tutoring support to students through the Writing Resource Center.
Case Western Reserve University invites applications for one or more full-time lecturer positions in SAGES (the Seminar Approach to General Education and Scholarship), the core academic program for all Case Western Reserve undergraduates. SAGES seminars cover a range of topics and emphasize intellectual inquiry, critical thinking, and academic writing. (See http://sages.case.edu/.) Responsibilities include designing and leading seminars, providing collaborative writing support in other SAGES seminars, and consulting with students in the Writing Resource Center. Qualified applicants will have a Ph.D. in any field by August 2018 and significant experience teaching undergraduates. Training in or experience with writing instruction strongly preferred. Teaching load is the equivalent of three courses per semester, which may include teaching departmental courses or administrative responsibilities. Initial appointment is for one year, and may be renewed for up to two additional one-year periods. Rank: Lecturer, non-tenure-track.
