Now Accepting Applications for the 2014-2015 Brittain Postdoctoral Fellowship

Marion L. Brittain Postdoctoral Fellowship

Composition, Technical Communication, and Digital Pedagogy

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 humanities fields for the Brittain Postdoctoral Fellowship. The fellowship, renewable up to three years, includes a 3/3 teaching assignment, Instructor rank, and full faculty benefits. Writing and Communication Program courses emphasize multimodal communication, digital literacy, and humanistic perspectives on a technological world. Fellows teach multimodal composition, technical communication, and design courses with common outcomes but informed by their own research interests. Fellows participate in professional development as well as service. 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.

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. Review of applications begins on February 1, 2014, and continues 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.

About Christine Hoffmann

Christine Hoffmann (PhD University of Arkansas, MFA Art Institute of Chicago) studies the shifting standards for credibility and utility that develop inside post-Gutenberg and post-digital rhetorical environments. Her scholarly work has been published in College Literature, the CEA Critic, PLL, the CEA Forum and, somewhat randomly, Slayage: the Online Journal of Buffy Studies. A few short stories can be found in Make magazine, Eclectica and Loose Change. She also blogs regularly on TECHStyle, the forum for digital pedagogy and research by the Georgia Tech Brittain Fellows. Christine looks forward to connecting the teaching of multimodal composition to her research into rhetorics of struggle, cultures of collecting, and the advantages of copious expression.
