Employment

UWC is no longer accepting applications for graduate and undergraduate writing consultants. We will begin hiring for Spring 18, in November 2017.

Please go to www.unrsearch.com for more information and to apply.

To find out more about our current student employment opportunities, please contact us.

The University Writing Center is partially funded by student fees. As part of our commitment to the students who support the Writing Center, we employ undergraduate and graduate students as writing consultants. Typically the University Writing Center recruits new writing consultants at the end of each semester. Mandatory trainings are held before each new semester. In addition, writing consultants are expected to attend monthly workshops as part of their employment with the University Writing Center.

We do not require but do encourage interested students to take ENG 408b/608b Tutoring Student Writers, which provides a theoretical foundation and practical, hands-on experience in the University Writing Center as part of the curriculum.

We hire students from all disciplinary backgrounds, including STEM fields, humanities disciplines, educational programs, and health related fields.

In general the Writing Center hires two times a year: once for fall semester and then again for the spring semester. Job openings are posted in April  for the next fall semester and posted in November for the next spring semester.
