The Graduate School of Education at the University of California, Berkeley
announces an opening for a tenure-track or tenured appointment at the
Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor rank in English Language
Learning/Bilingual Education, starting July 1, 2011. This is a full time
position with a nine-month academic year appointment, and it is in the
Language and Literacy, Society and Culture area of the school.

Across the nation and world, schools struggle to educate immigrant students
and English language learners. We seek a scholar whose research and teaching
will contribute to the theory and practice of English language learning and
teaching/bilingual education by providing rigorous and theoretically
grounded approaches to understanding the academic and schooling experiences
of immigrant and English language learners. The work of ideal candidates
will engage classroom learning and teaching practices, but it will situate
and analyze these practices in the broader context of the socio-historical,
cultural diversity, and political-equity issues surrounding the schooling of
immigrant students, English language learners, bilingual, and culturally and
linguistically diverse students. A focus on K-12 education is desired.

Candidates should hold a doctoral degree in educational linguistics,
language and literacy education, second language acquisition, or another
related field. They should have demonstrated a record, or the potential for
achieving a record, of producing and publishing high-quality research and
generating funding from competitive grants. Candidates will be expected to
have excellent teaching and mentoring skills and contribute to teaching and
advising in our doctoral/masters and credential programs. There will also be
opportunities to teach courses in our undergraduate minor.

Strong candidates will have expertise in one or more of the following areas:
(1) first/second language development and assessment, (2) instructing
immigrant, English language learners, bilingual, and/or culturally and
linguistically diverse students in one or more of the content areas
(literacy, social studies, science, and math), and (3) the intersections
between language, race, ethnicity, and culture in teaching and learning.

Applications must include a detailed letter of interests and qualifications;
a curriculum vitae; a sample of recent scholarly writings; and three letters
of reference. All items must be submitted no later than December 1, 2010.
