Assistant Professor of Hispanic Languages and Literatures, Queens College, City University of New York, Queens, NY, USA. Deadline: 17 January 2023.
The Department of Hispanic Languages and Literatures invites applications for a tenure-track appointment at the level of Assistant Professor in the field of Hispanic Linguistics to begin Fall 2023. They are interested in candidates whose research focuses on any, or a combination, of the following fields: sociolinguistics, Spanish as a heritage language, or second language acquisition. They seek candidates with a strong scholarly background, who are committed to excellence in undergraduate and graduate teaching and identify with the mission of Queens College and the City University of New York (CUNY).
The College is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through their teaching and other assigned duties. Candidates with training in language pedagogy are especially encouraged to apply. The person appointed will teach (i) introductory, intermediate, and advanced courses in Spanish language and linguistics; (ii) elective courses for Spanish majors and minors; and (iii) coordinate the Department’s language program and curriculum. The basic teaching load for faculty is 3/3, and the untenured period includes significant reassigned time for research. Work spent on administrative duties, such as language coordination, reduces teaching load.
