The Center for Excellence in Writing employs Undergraduate Consultants, Graduate Consultants, and Teaching Assistants. We hire consultants in a variety of disciplines.
To work as an Undergraduate Consultant, you should be a strong academic writer and have an interest in mentoring or teaching. ENG 495: Composing/Consulting is an undergraduate prerequisite for work in the CEW. This course is generally offered in the Fall and will prepare students to work in the CEW the following semester. (Please note that taking ENG 495 does not guarantee that you will be hired to work in the CEW.)
To work as a Graduate Consultant, you should have demonstrated success in academic writing in your discipline, pedagogical experience (teaching or tutoring), and pedagogical coursework. If you lack specific experience with writing instruction, we may still be able to employ you. If you have these qualifications, send an email of inquiry along with your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hire a limited number of Teaching Assistants each year, primarily doctoral students who have significant teaching experience. Many of our TAs started as graduate consultants in the CEW. We assess our needs for the academic year in the Spring of the prior year. At that time, if you are interested in being considered for such a position, please contact us at email@example.com.
