The Department of Modern Languages & Literatures in the College of Arts and Sciences at Loyola University Chicago (LUC) invites applications for a three-year, renewable, Non-Tenure Track Lecturer in Spanish for academic year 2022-2023.
The Department of Modern Languages & Literatures is one of the most diverse departments at Loyola, and we especially encourage applications from candidates from under-represented groups. A successful candidate will have the skills to promote inclusivity; foster a wide range of students as they study Spanish and participate in Spanish extra- and co-curricular activities; and mentor students from all backgrounds, including under-represented and under-served populations.
The candidate should be willing to support the mission of LUC and the goals of a Jesuit Catholic education. The successful candidate will join a department with more than 20 full-time faculty members and over 12 majors and minors. For more information about the department, please visit its website at https://www.luc.edu/modernlang/index.shtml
We seek a Lecturer in Spanish Language and Latin American Literature. Teaching responsibilities will include a variety of courses across the curriculum: primarily Spanish language at all levels, with the potential to also teach bridge and introductory literature courses. In addition, candidates may teach advanced undergraduate-level courses depending on departmental need. Experience and/ or interest in coordinating language courses at the intermediate level is also desirable.
The candidate must have obtained a PhD in a relevant field of Hispanic Studies or Spanish by the time of contract. Experience teaching Spanish language courses to undergraduates at an American university is also required (TA experience is acceptable); experience teaching literature is desirable but not necessary. The candidate should also possess native or near-native fluency in Spanish, and excellent English-language communication skills.
Experience and/ or interest in coordinating language courses at the intermediate level is also desirable.
Candidates should visit www.careers.luc.edu to submit (1) a brief letter of interest; (2) a current CV; (3) a statement addressing past and/or potential future contributions to engaging diverse communities and mentoring a diverse student body through teaching and other channels; (4) a teaching statement and dossier including course evaluations and any other relevant teaching materials. Applicants will also be asked to list three individuals who can speak to their professional qualifications for this position, especially in terms of teaching and mentorship; referees will then be prompted to submit letters of recommendation online.
Please submit application materials by February 1, 2022.
