Job Description

The Writing and Communication Program (WCP) in the School of Literature, Media, and Communication at Georgia Tech invites applications for the Marion L. Brittain Postdoctoral Fellowship, starting January 1, 2023. This three-year fellowship includes service, research, and a 3/3 teaching assignment in first-year composition or business/technical communication. Within programmatic outcomes related to rhetoric, process, and multimodality, Fellows integrate their own research interests into the courses they teach.

In addition to full faculty benefits, including health insurance, retirement, and research support, Brittain Fellows receive preparation in and support for further development of multimodal pedagogy via the Digital Pedagogy Postdoctoral Seminar. Brittain Fellows also benefit from other support activities and services, including the postdoctoral seminar in technical communication and job market support for both academic and nonacademic positions.

Winner of the 2020 Georgia Tech Diversity Champion Award, the 2021 Regents’ Teaching Excellence Award, and the the 2021-22 CCCC Writing Program Certificate of Excellence, the WCP is committed to providing inclusive teaching for a diverse student body. We strongly encourage individuals from Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, and Pacific Islander communities; individuals from the LGBTQIA+ community; and individuals born outside the US to apply.
