Job Title: Professor of Hispanic Linguistics
Job Rank: Asst/Assoc Professor

Specialty Areas: Applied Linguistics; Language Acquisition; Technology-Enhanced Language Learning (TELL)

Required Language(s): Spanish (spa)

Description:

The Department of Spanish and Portuguese seeks to fill a tenure system or
tenured position in Spanish with an emphasis in Spanish Second Language
Acquisition and Technology-Enhanced Language Learning (TELL). The Department
is particularly seeking scholars with a deep commitment to the development of
transformative online educational practices in L2 learning and teaching. The
combination of TELL technologies — for instance, those developed around social
networking, augmented reality, geolocation, and virtual worlds —  aims at
boosting one of the largest undergraduate Spanish programs in the country. It
aims to do so with the creation of virtual environments for multilingual and
multicultural learning. 

Candidates with experience in developing (and writing grants that foment)
teaching and researching best practices for online learning and hybrid courses
are particularly encouraged to apply. Duties will include teaching courses in
second language pedagogy in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, and in
SLAT (Second Language Acquisition and Teaching). The successful candidate will
also work with colleagues in the Department and the College of Humanities to
bolster and expand the Department and College’s footprint in Digital
Humanities, and with colleagues across campus in the School of Information to
develop innovative ways to integrate multicultural practices in language
learning. The successful candidate will also contribute to University-wide
efforts to promote and implement new paradigms for technology-enhanced second
language learning, including the University’s new online campus, and also
collaborate with the Computational Media Research Group. 

The candidates must have a Ph.D. in Hispanic Linguistics or a related field at
the time of appointment. For appointment as Assistant Professor, candidates
should present evidence of teaching excellence at the undergraduate level, and
should demonstrate scholarly achievement or significant scholarly potential.
For appointment at the Associate Professor level, the candidate should provide
evidence of teaching excellence, and a record of scholarship commensurate with
the appointment with tenure at an AAU, Carnegie Research University. 

Native or near-native proficiency in Spanish is required. 

Review of candidates will begin on November 28, 2016. Candidates must apply
online for job number F20655 at the application URL below. Candidates will be
required to provide a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, writing sample and
three reference letters.  Applications will be accepted until the position is
filled.  

The University of Arizona is a committed Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action
Institution. Women, minorities, veterans and individuals with disabilities are
encouraged to apply.



Application Deadline: 19-Dec-2016 (Open until filled)
