New York University’s Expository Writing Program (EWP) invites applications for the position of Director of Writing in the Disciplines, beginning September 1, 2018, subject to budgetary and administrative approval.

Teaching load is one course per semester, with the expectation of administrative work over the summer. More information is available on EWP’s website.
