Kennesaw State University is now accepting applications for a nine-month, tenure-track Assistant Professor of English (Rhetoric and Composition) in the Department of English beginning August 1, 2022.


A commitment to excellence in teaching, complemented by strong scholarship, engagement and service is expected of all faculty members in KSU’s Radow College of Humanities and Social Sciences.


Specific responsibilities include: 

  • Teaching undergraduate courses such as Rhetorical Theory (ENGL 4240), Topics in Digital Rhetoric (WRIT 3150), Digital Community Engagement (WRIT 3152), Research Methods for Writers (WRIT 3810), and first-year composition, as well as graduate courses for the MA in Professional Writing.
  • Contributing to departmental efforts to develop curriculum in digital humanities as well as one or more of these areas: rhetoric of science, rhetoric of health and medicine, legal rhetoric.
  • Producing quality and significant discipline-specific research/scholarly/creative activities.
  • Contributing to the service efforts of the department, university, profession, and community.
  • Supporting the professional interests and experiences of students through internships, community/work-based initiatives, and engagement. 


A Ph.D., or its foreign equivalent, in Rhetoric and Composition, English, or a closely related field is required. Candidates who are ABD may apply provided completion is before the start date. 


The Department of English seeks a collaborative and collegial teacher-scholar of rhetoric and composition whose areas of expertise include current practices in digital rhetorics, digital methods, and digital publishing, especially in relation to the study of rhetoric of science, rhetoric of health and medicine, or legal rhetoric. Experience or interest in undergraduate research, writing in the disciplines (e.g., legal writing), writing program administration, literacy studies, archival research, and/or public humanities is also highly desirable. Ideal candidates will have a promising record of scholarship in their area. 


KSU’s student population is as diverse as the population of the Atlanta metro area and includes a high proportion of traditionally underrepresented groups and first-generation college students. We prefer candidates who share the Department of English’s explicit commitment to teaching diverse communities and our belief that our diversity is our strength. Individuals from historically underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged to apply.
