The Department of Languages and Applied Linguistics (https://language.ucsc.edu) at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for an ongoing pool of part-time Lecturers who may be appointed to teach Chinese language courses.
Applicants with expertise and/or a graduate degree in applied linguistics are strongly encouraged to apply.
The campus is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through their teaching and other assigned duties, and who have experience teaching the targeted language both as a second language and as a heritage language. Candidates are expected to have native or near-native proficiency in Chinese and they are expected to have extensive training in language pedagogy.
Commensurate with qualifications and experience and the particular courses the Lecturer is appointed to teach. Compensation for Summer Session courses may vary from courses taught during the academic year.
- Master’s degree (or equivalent foreign degree) in Chinese or related field at the time of application.
- One year of independent teaching in the Chinese language at the university level.
Appointments are contingent on the hiring unit’s instructional need and the availability of funding. Appointments are typically made during one or more quarters of the regular academic year (fall, winter, and spring quarters), but they may also be made during Summer Session.
Applications are accepted via the UCSC Academic Recruit online system. All documents and materials must be submitted as PDFs.
