Initial appointment will be for a three-year term with the possibility of renewal for subsequent multi-year terms, as well as promotion in rank.
 
The Expository Writing Program is an independent academic unit within the College of Arts and Science, comprised of a vibrant faculty of over 100 writers and scholars. In collaboration with the Writing Center, Writing in the Disciplines is the primary outreach initiative of EWP.
 
The director will be charged with developing a vision and strategy for supporting writing in the disciplines and across the curriculum at NYU. Serving as part of EWP’s leadership team, the director will also work within EWP to enhance first-year writing instruction as a result of that institutional outreach and learning. Teaching load is one course per semester, with the expectation of administrative work over the summer. More information is available on EWP’s website.

A PhD is preferred, although candidates with an EdD, MFA, or other appropriate terminal degree are encouraged to apply.
