The Amherst College Department of Spanish invites applications for a full-time tenure-track appointment in Spanish linguistics, with a primary focus on teaching Spanish as a second language, at the rank of assistant professor, to begin July 1, 2017.

Today, nearly one-quarter of Amherst’s students are Pell Grant recipients; 44 percent of our students are domestic students of color. Our expectation is that the successful candidate will excel at teaching and mentoring students who are broadly diverse with regard to race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, and religion. We seek candidates actively engaged in research who will offer dynamic beginning, intermediate, and advanced Spanish language courses for our diverse community of language learners, including non-native and heritage speakers. The successful candidate will play an integral part in the department’s revision of its language program. A Ph.D. in hand, native level fluency in Spanish, fluency in English, and prior college or university classroom teaching experience are required. Teaching duties include two courses per semester, academic advising, directing undergraduate theses, and supervising language assistants. Review of applications will begin on November 15, 2016, and continue until the position is filled. A letter of application that addresses research and teaching, CV, sample language course syllabus, short writing sample of current research, and three confidential letters of recommendation should be submitted electronically to Questions may be addressed to Professor Sara Brenneis at Initial interviews will be conducted at the MLA Convention in Philadelphia or via Skype.
