Instructor: Freshman Composition

Florida State University London Study Centre

Location: London
Salary: £3,300 for class sessions and associated marking
Hours: Part Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 22nd March 2019
Closes: 22nd May 2019

The Florida State University seeks an instructor to teach an undergraduate course entitled “Freshman Composition and Rhetoric” for Fall 2019. Classes run from 2 September to 10 December 2019.

This is a mandatory 3-credit academically rigorous course to teach writing to first-year students. The course emphasis is upon the process of invention, drafting and revising, with use of faculty and peer review. By the end of the course, students will have produced 7,000 words of critiqued writing through both expository essays and a journal; they will be able to compose for specific purposes and audiences, incorporate sources from a variety of text types and be capable of conveying ideas clearly, coherently and effectively.

The relevant department in Tallahassee establishes the framework of the syllabus for this course but the instructor has latitude in designing the syllabus and delivering the topics and competencies. We encourage instructors to make full use of London’s resources in creating their courses by taking students out during class time to visit academically relevant exhibits and institutions.

Classes meet once a week in a three-hour block on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays. The class size will probably be about 15 students. The position will be based in Central London at our Bloomsbury campus.

The remuneration will be £3,300 for class sessions and associated marking.

The ideal candidate will have a PhD in a relevant discipline, and previous teaching experience. Experience of working with US study abroad students is desirable. More information about our program can be found at

To apply for the position, please send a CV and covering letter to Dr Kathleen Paul at  FSU London reserves the right to reviews applications and interview,  on a rolling basis. For further information email or call 020 7813 3223.
