The Department of Classical and Modern Languages and Literatures at Texas Tech University invites applications for a tenure-track appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor of Spanish to begin in Fall 2023. 

Responsibilities of the position include an ongoing program of research, commitment to excellent undergraduate and graduate teaching at a range of levels and on diverse subjects, collegial collaboration with other members of the Spanish section and CMLL, and service to the department, college, and university, including program-building, recruitment initiatives and active commitment to extra-curricular activities. 


The candidate must have the Ph.D. in hand by the time of appointment. Native or near-native fluency in Spanish is required.

We are seeking a dynamic teacher-scholar with a research specialization in Spanish translation process studies with a background in Linguistics who will lead the development of a Graduate Certificate in Translation. In order to complement existing departmental strengths, we hope to recruit a colleague whose work encompasses various specialties, such as language processing, language technology, translation technology, translation process studies, machine translation, corpus linguistics, computational linguistics, subtitling and captioning. The successful candidate would have access to the department's eye tracking laboratory, if this methodology is of interest to the candidate. 

Ability to teach Spanish for the professions (especially medical) is highly desirable, but not required. The successful candidate will show evidence of strong scholarly achievement or potential as demonstrated by top-tier, innovative publications and/or works in progress; a capacity for excellent teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels as both a specialist and a generalist; and a demonstrated and ongoing commitment to serving diverse student populations. 

Candidates with strong records of scholarship supported by extramural funding and with the proven capacity or clear potential to bring externally sponsored research to Texas Tech University are encouraged to apply.
