Dear Colleagues:

Members of the Master of Arts in Professional Communication faculty at
Clemson are seeking a colleague to work with us in continuing to build
our program. Below is a description of the position, the program, and
the university. Please forward this message to interested parties,
and apologies to those who receive multiple copies. Tharon Howard

October 17, 1994

We will have one or two openings at the rank of assistant professor
beginning August 1995. Fields of specialization include rhetoric and
professional communication. Clemson's English department has 60+
full-time faculty, 40 of whom are tenured or tenure-track. Faculty in
rhetoric, technical communication, and visual communication have the
opportunity to teach, direct student projects, and direct theses in
our M.A. program in Professional Communication. The MAPC program is
two years old, enrolling 12-15 new students annually. Resources
include the Document Design Lab with current technology for DTP and
multimedia, the Usability Testing Facility, and the Pearce Center for
Professional Communication, which assists the program via its
Corporate Advisory Board. Through the Pearce Center and the Campbell
Chair in Technical Communication, students and faculty participate in
communication across the curriculum workshops and projects. The
program draws on the University's resources in engineering,
agriculture, computer science, graphic communications, and
architecture. We also have a small but expanding technical writing
minor program. All faculty teach general education courses, including
first-year composition, second-year literature surveys, and third-year
advanced communication such as business or technical writing.

Since 1965 the Department of English has also offered a traditional
M.A. in English that focuses on literary study. More information
about the department and the MAPC program is available via Gopher.
Point your gopher to GOPHER.CLEMSON.EDU.

Clemson University is a land-grant, publicly assisted institution that
enrolls 16,000 students, of whom 3000 are graduate students. The
1,400-acre campus is located on the shores of Lake Hartwell in
northwestern South Carolina, in the foothills of the Blue Ridge
Mountains. The Clemson area offers a wide variety of outdoor
recreational activities. Water and mountain sports are enjoyed year
round and include swimming, sailing, boating, water skiing, whitewater
rafting, camping, and hiking. Cultural activities include concerts,
lectures, and art exhibits. The University hosts nationally known
dramatic companies, entertainers, writers, and scholars during its two
annual festivals on Shakespeare and on African-American literature and
arts. The campus is approximately 2.5 hours by car from both Atlanta,
GA, and Charlotte, NC, via I-85. The town of Clemson is also served
by rail, as a scheduled stop on the Southern Crescent Amtrak route,
and by air via Greenville/Spartanburg Airport, 45 miles away.

Positions carry a 3 course per semester teaching load; salary is
competitive; PhD required by appointment date. The application
deadline is 4 November for SAMLA interviews, 2 December for MLA
interviews. Send letter of application and vita to:
