The Pennsylvania State University's Abington Campus is seeking to hire a full-time teaching faculty member for its Academic Integration program, Division of Arts and Humanities, to begin work in August 2019. The program offers a variety of Academic Integration Courses (AIC) in Composition, College Reading, and Effective Communication, which are credit-bearing general education courses specifically designed to meet the needs of domestic and international multilingual students in their first and second year. This is a fixed-term, potentially renewable appointment. The teaching load will be four sections per semester. The successful candidate will teach assigned academic integration courses, typically including a two-semester stretch writing course and sections of 200-level writing (e.g., Business Writing, Writing in Social Sciences or Humanities). A minimum qualification is a Master's in TESOL or related field. We are seeking an instructor with expertise in second language writing pedagogy and significant experience in teaching multilingual domestic and international students.
