Preference will be given to candidates with Ph.D.s or other terminal degrees in fields that are taught at Harvard College, including fields in the sciences and social sciences; or to candidates with MFAs; who have experience in the teaching of academic argument at the college level; and who demonstrate a lively interest in issues of writing pedagogy and an innovative approach to the teaching of communication skills.
