Job Number: 58826

Stanford University is seeking a full-time Lecturer for the Stanford Storytelling Project, an arts program within the Program in Writing and Rhetoric (PWR) in the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education (VPUE). This will be a two year fixed-term appointment beginning August 1, 2019 - July 31, 2021, with the possibility of re-appointment.

The Stanford Storytelling Project (SSP) is an arts program that teaches students how to use story craft and practices to create personal and social change. The program sponsors courses, workshops, grants, and a live event series that give students an opportunity to appreciate the way stories work, work on us, and can work for us. SSP explores all forms of stories, from myth to memoir, in all kinds of media, from print to performance, and produces two podcasts that feature the research and creative work of the Stanford community.

The SSP Lecturer will offer instruction in oral, audio, and/or multimedia storytelling craft in a variety of settings across the university and will support the activities and initiatives of SSP. There are three areas of responsibility: (1) teaching, (2) mentoring, and (3) managing podcast production and undergraduate grant program. The SSP Lecturer will develop and teach 2-3 courses per year in oral, audio, and multimedia forms of storytelling in nonfiction genres such as memoir, documentary, and the essay, and as well as design and deliver stand-alone workshops in courses across the curriculum. They will closely mentor grant recipients, SSP student staff, and other students in narrative craft, practices, and media production. Finally, the SSP Lecturer will act as Managing Editor of SSP's student-produced podcasts, overseeing all aspects of the production process, from initial show development through distribution, and supervise the small, undergraduate grant program.

Though these duties largely correspond to the academic year, there are also some program and planning duties in the summer months. The SSP Lecturer reports to the Stanford Storytelling Project Manager.

Qualifications:

Applicants should hold an advanced degree (Ph.D. preferred) in a field focused on narrative craft such as Documentary Studies, Oral History, Journalism, Creative Nonfiction, or English. They should have at least two years of experience teaching university-level courses in producing nonfiction stories in print or non-print media; these might be courses in documentary production, creative nonfiction, or in other fields that concentrate on narrative theory, craft, and practices to produce creative work. Applicants should also have at least two years of experience making long-form, nonfiction audio or mixed media stories for radio, podcast, or the web. Finally, they should have demonstrated knowledge of oral and audio storytelling forms, trends, and programs, an understanding of pedagogy in teaching narrative craft, and the organizational and leadership skills to manage the production of podcasts such as SSP's State of the Human.

5Lecturer, Structured Liberal Edu
Location: Stanford, CA 94305
Classified Lecturer, Structured Liberal Education, Stanford University

Stanford University seeks one full-time Lecturer for the program in Structured Liberal Education (SLE) within Residential Programs (ResPro) in the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education (VPUE). This is a one year fixed term appointment beginning September 1, 2019 - August 31, 2020, with the possibility of renewal for up to three additional years.

SLE is a residence-based humanities program that encourages students to live a life of ideas in an atmosphere that emphasizes critical thinking and interpretation. Focusing on important works of philosophy, religion, literature, painting, and film drawn largely, but not exclusively, from the Western tradition, the SLE curriculum places particular emphasis on artists and intellectuals who brought new ways of thinking and new ways of creating into the world, often overthrowing prior traditions in the process. Students in the program draw connections between issues raised in the course and contemporary concerns about social justice, inequality, and identity politics - these connections and the resulting discussions about the legacy of the Western tradition, constitute a core aspect of the course and of the residential learning experience.

Instruction includes the following: three lectures each week, usually by Stanford faculty members; two weekly seminar meetings; ad hoc meetings between first year students and assigned upperclassmen who serve as their writing tutors; a weekly film or special event; and a considerable amount of informal interaction in the SLE dormitory environment.

The SLE Lecturer is a full-time position that involves leading the two weekly seminars (with the same group of about fifteen students in both), attending all of the lectures, commenting on up to three papers each term (both in writing and in one-to-one meetings with the students) , and assuming some administrative tasks. They are also expected to have general participation in the life of the program and the residence in which the program is embedded (although SLE Lecturers do not live in the residence, they are fully participating members of the residential experience). A SLE Lecturer may be called upon to deliver at least one lecture to the class. They work closely as a team with the Director of the Program (a Stanford faculty member), the upper-class tutors assigned to their seminars, and partly with participating Stanford faculty.

Qualifications
Candidates should have a Ph.D. (filed no later than June 30, 2019), a strong record of humanities scholarship and evidence of teaching excellence.

Application Instructions
To learn more about Structured Liberal Education, please visit our website at http://sle.stanford.edu. If you have questions about SLE or the Lecturer position, write to Jeremy Sabol, jsabol@stanford.edu . To apply and view a more detailed job description, please follow the instructions found at: https://apply.interfolio.com/59024

Please submit (1) A letter of application that addresses (a) all aspects of your qualifications; (b) your preparation for teaching in a residential humanities program; (c) your preparation for helping undergraduates draw connections between pre-modern texts and contemporary concerns; and (d) your experience with writing instruction; (2) a teaching statement that describes your teaching philosophy; (3) teaching evaluations (preferably from students and/or peers); (4) a curriculum vitae, and (5) three letters of reference, with at least one reference describing the status of your dissertation progress.

For full consideration, all applications must be uploaded to Interfolio. The deadline for applications is February 29, 2019 at 11:59:59 PM Eastern Time.

To support this success, more than $113 million was raised by the Liberal Arts staff in the University's previous major fundraising effort, For the Future: The Campaign for Penn State Students. In Penn State's current campaign, the College of Liberal Arts will secure support for an even more ambitious vision of becoming the premier institution for study and work in the liberal arts disciplines.

A Greater Penn State for 21st Century Excellence (http://greaterpennstate.psu.edu)

No institution offers a more powerful example of private support furthering the public good than Penn State, and the University is beginning a new effort that will allow us to fulfill our land-grant mission for a new era: A Greater Penn State for 21st Century Excellence. This strategic, five-year fundraising initiative reflects our commitment to the three core imperatives of a truly great public university:

* Open Doors: Private support can not only bring talented students from every background to Penn Stateit can help them to graduate on time and on track to successful careers and lives.

* Create Transformative Experiences: Philanthropy will provide the opportunities- in our classrooms, on our campuses, and in the larger world- that let students and faculty discover their full potential and make a difference.

* Impact the World: With the visionary gifts of alumni and friends, we can tackle the world's most pressing problemsand solve them.
Last year, donors inspired by the campaign's vision made $362.9 million in new commitments, the highest total in Penn State history and the second year in a row of commitments surpassing $300 million. FY2017-2018 also broke the institutional record for receipts, with a total of $322.7 million.

Much work remains ahead if the campaign is to reach its five-year, $1.6 billion goal. The Division of Development and Alumni Relations has established an innovative, performance-based incentive plan that enables employees to earn a bonus of up to 9 percent of their base salary in each remaining year of the campaign.

The ambition of the campaign is great, but no greater than the spirit and generosity of our supporters. A Greater Penn State for 21st Century Excellence is an opportunity for our alumni and friends to contribute to the University's future and to the future we all share.
