Each year the Princeton Writing Program welcomes applications from Princeton graduate students who are in the final stage of dissertation-writing and interested in joining the teaching staff as a Quin Morton Teaching Fellow. Our teaching community is among the most disciplinarily diverse of any program in the country. Each seminar is strongly writing-centered and revolves around a topic that can be explored through a wide range of evidence, methodologies, and scholarship. The instructor guides students in that exploration to develop motivated research questions and respond with persuasive, original analysis. In this way, students are given a compelling occasion to practice the strategies and techniques of college-level argument. 

The course load for graduate students is one seminar per term.

Information about the 2020 - 2021 application process will be made available in late November. For more information about the Princeton Writing Program, explore our website or view an overview of the Program.

Please note: To be eligible for a Quin Morton Teaching Fellow position, you must be in Dissertation Completion Enrollment (DCE) status in 2020 - 2021. If you defend your dissertation before September 1, 2020, you are no longer eligible to serve as a Quin Morton Teaching Fellow. All Quin Morton Teaching Fellow appointments are subject to departmental endorsement and to review and approval by the Graduate School. Please also note: You may apply in both categories (Full- or Part-Time Lectureship and Quin Morton Teaching Fellow); if you choose to do so, please submit your application twice so we can track your candidacy (online at Princeton University Academic Jobs for the Lecturer position and by email to writing2@princeton.edu for the Quin Morton Teaching Fellow position). If you are selected for a lectureship, you must defend your dissertation before September 1, 2020. Your cover letters should indicate that you’re applying in both categories.
