Technical Communications Faculty Positions

Virginia Tech's College of Engineering anticipates filling up to three 
tenure-track Academic Year (9-month) positions to support an initiative 
in the area of technical communications instruction and research. 
Successful candidates will be expected to develop an effective teaching 
program and to pursue scholarly work, including externally-funded 
research, in this subject area. Position duties will involve working 
with departments within the college to enhance the communication skills 
elements of their curricula and to provide some support for freshman 
courses. Some summer teaching and/or advising may be available. 
Appointments would begin in August 2004. Successful applicants will 
have a terminal degree in English or communications studies or 
engineering, or a related field. Degrees in both engineering and a 
communications-related discipline are desirable. In addition, 
experience working with engineers (in the engineering workplace or in 
teaching) is desirable. Previous teaching experience at the university 
level is desired. These positions will reside in the College's Division 
of Engineering Fundamentals, which serves as home department for all 
first-year engineering students and is currently being restructured as 
the Department of Engineering Education, with the technical 
communications area as one of the missions of the new organization. 
Opportunities for collaboration with professional writing faculty in 
the Department of English are available and will be strongly 
encouraged. Salary and rank will be commensurate with qualifications 
and experience. Review of applications will begin February 1, 2004 and 
continue until successful candidates are chosen. More information on 
the Division of Engineering Fundamentals and its mission within 
Virginia Tech's College of Engineering is available at www.ef.vt.edu. 
Virginia Tech has a strong commitment to diversity, and, in that 
spirit, the College of Engineering seeks a broad spectrum of candidates 
including women, minorities, and people with disabilities. Online 
applications are encouraged. To apply online go to www.jobs.vt.edu and
