Assistant Professor/Director of Debate 

Augustana is seeking applications for its Director of Debate position.  We will also search for a faculty-level Assistant Director of Debate.  That second search will formally commence as soon as the Director search is completed

Qualifications:  Substantial debate experience is required.  Ph.D. preferred, ABD considered.  

The successful applicant will direct a nationally recognized NDT program and will teach courses in the department and probably within the College??s Liberal Studies core.  The Director typically starts with courses such as public speaking, debate and persuasion, then adds other courses as times goes on.  The Director, with the support of an assistant director, manages all aspects of a small but successful debate program: arrange travel and budgets, travel with teams, recruit student debaters, contribute to the recruitment of an assistant director, and maintain strong connections with high school programs.  The Director of Debate has a reduced teaching load of four courses over three trimesters.  Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Ideally we will have a director in place by early December. Members of the department will be available at NCA.  Questions about this position should be directed to the Search Committee Chair, David Snowball, at snowball at augustana.edu.
