or some related discipline requiring strong reading, reasoning, and
analytical skills. A Ph.D. or doctoral-level work is preferred.
Training in formal and/or informal logic is required, preferably at
the graduate level. A broad background in liberal arts and experience
in college teaching, editing, and/or test question construction are
desirable. Precise and articulate use of the English language,
demonstrated organizational skills, the ability to work independently,
and the ability to meet deadlines are necessary.
