Clemson University's English Department seeks an outstanding

Composition, a three-year renewable position. The position start

The typical teaching load for tenured and tenure-track faculty is
two courses per semester. The Director of First-Year Composition
typically receives one course release per academic year while
serving in the director role. The new Director will also
collaborate with current faculty to enhance well-established
curricular and institutional programs. The English department has a
robust undergraduate major, a significant role in Clemson
University's general education curriculum, and a well-established
Clemson is an R-1 land grant institution located in upstate South
Carolina-a global university with a mission to serve the diverse

outreach, especially to traditionally underserved communities
across the state.
