Non-tenure track renewable contract (NTRC) position as Assistant Professor of Technology Assisted Language Learning (TALL)
The Department of Modern Languages and Classics invites applications for a non-tenure track renewable contract (NTRC) position as Assistant Professor of Technology Assisted Language Learning (TALL) beginning August, 2019. This is a renewable position with opportunities for promotion to higher rank. The applicant should also have expertise in at least one of the languages taught in the department and have native or near-native competence in that language. Candidates with relevant secondary areas of expertise, for example experience with qualitative research and/or assistance with language program direction, are encouraged to apply. Minimum requirements include: a Ph.D. or equivalent in TALL, CALL, Second Language Acquisition, Applied Linguistics, or related field, with a particular focus on the use of technology in instructed SLA. Experience with technology-enhanced curriculum development, materials, and assessments is also desirable.
The successful candidate will teach undergraduate and graduate courses in his or her language and area of expertise. In addition to teaching, he or she is expected to participate in and/or coordinate interdisciplinary workshops and other events attended by linguists and other language educators at large on campus. Other service may include committee participation both within the Department and across campus, given the variety of applications of TALL across education and human development, and the potential for collaboration with other UA Colleges such as Nursing, Business, and Education.
Applicants should complete the online application at http://facultyjobs.ua.edu. The online application requires the following two documents: a letter of application describing relevant teaching and research experience, including evidence of teaching effectiveness, and a curriculum vitae. Three letters of recommendation should be sent directly to the chair of the search committee, Dr. Erin O’Rourke, at email@example.com. Applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis starting December 1, 2018. We expect to conduct preliminary conversations with select applicants via telephone or videoconference and final interviews on campus.
