Marion L. Brittain Postdoctoral Fellowship: Composition, Technical Communication, and Digital Pedagogy


To apply for the Marion L. Brittain Postdoctoral Fellowship, please submit a letter of application, teaching statement, CV, and three letters of recommendation to hiring@lmc.gatech.edu.


The Writing and Communication Program at Georgia Tech seeks recent PhDs in English, literature, rhetoric, composition, technical communication, film, linguistics, visual rhetoric/design, and related fields for the Brittain Postdoctoral Fellowship. The fellowship, renewable up to three years, includes a 3/3 teaching assignment, Instructor rank, and benefits. Fellows teach multimodal composition, technical communication, and design courses informed by their research interests. Candidates who express an interest in writing and communication center research, pedagogy, and/or practice may be offered positions that combine work in the program's communication center with a 2/2 teaching assignment. Writing and Communication Program courses emphasize multimodal communication, digital literacy, and humanistic perspectives on a technological world.

Applicants should submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, teaching portfolio, and three letters of recommendation to hiring@lmc.gatech.edu. Only digital applications will be reviewed. Applications will be accepted beginning January 3, 2013. Review of applications will begin on February 1, 2013, and will continue until all positions are filled, though earlier applications receive more consideration.

The Georgia Institute of Technology is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. The Writing and Communication Program is especially interested in considering applications from minority candidates.
