*Program in Second Language Education and Culture, University of Maryland,
College Park*

*Rank: Advanced Associate or Full Professor*

*Start Date: Fall, 2010*

Join a vibrant campus community in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area,
whose excellence is reflected in its teaching, research, and diversity.

The program in Second Language Education and Culture (SLEC), housed within
the College of Education, includes Ph.D., Ed.D., M.Ed, and M.Ed with ESOL/FL
certification degrees. Faculty in the department prepare the next generation
of scholars and researchers and help shape the theory and praxis that
guide teaching and learning of languages. Our faculty work with
international graduate students who are professional EFL specialists in
their home countries, as well as with U.S.-born graduate students who work
in ESL in the U.S. or in EFL overseas.

We specialize in the following areas:

·         English for Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) which includes
English as a Foreign Language (EFL), English as an international language
(EIL), World Englishes, and English as a Second Language (ESL)

·         Bilingual/Multilingual education

·         Foreign/international/world languages, including (but not limited
to) Spanish, French, German, Russian, Italian, Latin, Classical Greek,
Korean, Japanese, Chinese, and Arabic.

The Program in Second Language Education and Culture is highly
interdisciplinary. We are particularly interested in candidates whose
research reflects the globally expanding nature of the field of Second
Language Acquisition.

*Requirements **of the position:*

The successful candidate will be a senior scholar (advanced Associate or
Full professor) in the field of second language education. She or he must be
able to contribute to both U.S. and international issues related to the
teaching and learning of English and other languages. The area of
scholarship can be open, but a specialty in EFL, EIL, or World Englishes is
strongly preferred. We seek someone with a strong national or international
reputation for excellent research and publication in Foreign Language
Education (EFL, ESL, or other languages) who will be able to guide students
in appropriate research methodologies and to take on immediate
responsibilities in advising doctoral and master’s students, directing
dissertations, and contributing to doctoral comprehensive examinations and
master’s seminar papers. This individual must have extensive senior-level
university teaching credentials and a strong vision of doctoral program
excellence, the energy to share and collaboratively implement such a vision,
and experience in designing program options. The successful candidate will
have a record of securing external funding and be able to initiate research
grants and provide intellectual leadership and collaborative engagement with
faculty and students.

For best consideration send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, two-page
statement of research agenda for the next three years, a copy of three
