The Boise State University First Year Writing Program, a leader in innovation, collaboration, and scholarship, invites applications for the position of Lecturer I. We seek educators who are energized by the possibilities of first year writing and want to join our community. We encourage creative thinking throughout our program and seek colleagues who are interested in exploring innovations in first year writing pedagogy and staffing. We are specifically interested in candidates who can teach English 101 Plus, a foundational first year writing course accompanied by a supportive co-requisite component tailored for students requiring additional assistance in a variety of modalities. 

Our two-part first year writing course sequence focuses on inquiry, reflection, rhetorical awareness, writing transfer, ongoing research, and extensive writing in non-fiction real-world genres. Faculty in the First Year Writing program work toward the same course learning outcomes and common student experiences that reflect best practices for first year writing. The position is a renewable nine-month, non-tenure accruing appointment.

Applicants should have interest in large, complex projects involving various stakeholders, and they should have strong communication, organization, and time management skills. First year writing faculty receive mentorship and professional development, and they will benefit from joining a well-established teaching mentorship program. 

First Year Writing Lecturers join an active community and play a vital role in Boise State’s new First Year Experience initiative. We have more than one available position. Fully remote options are not available.
