Languages and Applied Linguistics: Hebrew Language Lecture Pool (Ongoing)

We are no longer accepting applications for this recruitment


The Department of Languages and Applied Linguistics at the University of California, Santa Cruz is developing a pool of qualified temporary Hebrew language instructors who could be called upon, as needed, to teach occasional courses either during the academic year or in Summer Session. Candidates accepted to our pool may be approached by other units to teach in areas related to their demonstrated areas of expertise. 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 Hebrew. Candidates in the less commonly taught languages [i.e. Hebrew] that do not hold an advanced degree are also expected to have extensive training in language pedagogy.
