The Department of Linguistics at the University of Oregon is searching for an assistant professor with a specialization in second language acquisition. The position begins September 16, 2013.
The successful candidate will be expected to maintain an active SLA research profile that connects with current areas of strength in the department and to contribute to service requirements. Teaching expectations include undergraduate and graduate courses in general linguistics and second language acquisition, plus courses in our Second Language Acquisition and Teaching Certificate (http://slat.uoregon.edu ) and in the MA Language teaching Specialization (http://logos.uoregon.edu/programs/graduate/teaching_specialization.shtml ).
The successful candidate may also propose the development of other courses, including graduate seminars in areas of specialization, plus mentoring of graduate student research at both the MA and PhD levels. While this appointment is wholly within Linguistics, there will be considerable opportunity to interact with faculty and students in allied departments and programs, e.g., various language teaching departments, Psychology, the Center for Applied Second Language Studies (http://casls.uoregon.edu ), the Northwest Indian Language Institute (http://pages.uoregon.edu/nwili ), and the World Languages Academy (http://wla.uoregon.edu ).
Application Deadline: 15-Dec-2012 (Open until filled)
