California College of the Arts is seeking candidates for a ranked non-tenure* associate or assistant professor position to teach courses in writing and communications skills to English Language Learners. With a growing international ELL student population, the program and college are searching for faculty interested in teaching remedial courses, evolving and designing curricula, providing academic coaching at a variety of levels, and increasing our institutional capacity to support ELLs in both the academic and studio learning environments.

In keeping with the college’s commitment to diversity, community engagement, and social justice, we seek candidates who cultivate an equitable, diverse scholarly environment and curriculum. We value collaboration, intellectual flexibility and creative approaches to scholarship and to teaching.
*Ranked non-tenure faculty appointments carry 3- year renewable terms, full benefits (including health benefits as well as eligibility for grants), and a teaching load of 50-80% full time. Ranked non-tenure faculty are voting faculty members and expected to fulfill academic service requirements.
