Non-Tenured Track
Employment Type
Full Time
The School of Writing, Literature, and Film invites applications for up to two full-time, (1.0 FTE) 9-month, fixed term writing Instructor positions to teach primarily in the field of composition and its many branches in our department: first- and second-year composition, technical writing, business writing, ESL, creative writing, journalism, and/or introduction to literature. We are primarily interested in a person who can teach in-person on OSU’s main Corvallis campus, though assignments to Ecampus (online) courses would be possible initially or eventually. 

Start date is negotiable, to occur at the beginning of either Fall term (September 16, 2021) or Winter Term (Jan 1, 2022). This is a non-tenure track appointment; however, promotional opportunities to the Senior Instructor I and Senior Instructor II ranks are available. The School of Writing, Literature, and Film enjoys a vibrant community of long-term instructors and the successful candidate will join a group of dedicated, innovative teachers. Versatility—the ability to teach in multiple writing areas—constitutes a particular strength.

As part of the College of Liberal Arts, the School of Writing, Literature, and Film is a community that includes and values the voices of all people. As such, we recognize the social barriers that have systematically marginalized and excluded people and communities based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual identity, socioeconomic background, age, disability, national origin and religion. We are committed to the equity of opportunities, and strive to promote and advance diverse communities. We value and proactively seek genuine participation from these historically under-represented and underserved groups, and recognize them as an essential component of creating a welcoming and rich academic, intellectual, and cultural environment for everyone. 

Oregon State is a leading research university located in one of the smartest and environmentally-responsible small cities in the nation, Corvallis, which has been voted the Best College Town in the Pac-12. Situated in the heart of Western Oregon’s Willamette Valley, Corvallis is 90 miles south of Portland, an hour from the Cascade mountain range, and an hour to the Pacific Coast. Founded in 1868, Oregon State is the state’s Land Grant university and is one of only two universities in the U.S. to have Sea Grant, Space Grant and Sun Grant designations. Oregon State is also the only university in Oregon to hold both the Carnegie Foundation’s top designation for research institutions and its prestigious Community Engagement classification.
