Teaching English to Speakers of Others Languages (TESOL)

Clinical track assistant professor; part-time position


The Margaret Warner Graduate School of Education and Human Development’s Teaching and Curriculum Program invites applications for a part-time clinical-track position in Teaching English to Speakers of Others Languages (TESOL)and Foreign Languages at the assistant professor rank, starting with the academic year 2019-2020. Main responsibilities for this position include: teaching master’s level courses in the secondary TESOL and Foreign Language education programs; possibly teaching other foundation courses in our graduate teacher preparation programs; advising and doing field supervision for teacher candidates seeking NYS teaching certification in secondary TESOL or Foreign Languages; and, more generally, taking primary responsibility for the TESOL and Foreign Language education teacher preparation programs. The candidate will also be expected to engage in clinical scholarship and participate in university, community, and professional service. It would be highly desirable for the candidate to be able to supervise doctoral dissertations. 
 
Applicants are expected to have a background in teacher preparation, with specialization in secondary TESOL and Foreign Language education, as well as experience with a variety of research methodologies, including action research. Experience teaching in and/or directing secondary TESOL and Foreign Language teacher preparation programs, and/or K-12 teaching experience in these focus areas are highly desirable. Preferred applicants will have an earned doctorate (or a completed doctorate by the start date) in TESOL, Foreign Language education, or related field. 
 
While the advertised position requires effort equivalent to a minimum of 50% of a full-time faculty position, the recipient will be welcome and supported to seek other responsibilities or sources of additional funding not to exceed the equivalent of an additional 50% effort (e.g., for a maximum possible 100% effort).   
 
The Teaching and Curriculum Program, within which this TESOL position is nested, offers master’s and doctoral degree programs as well as programs that lead to NYS teacher certification at the initial and professional levels. All these programs emphasize a social, historical, and contextual approach to education that is rooted in an interdisciplinary perspective, and build on the integration of theory and practice. The position requires a commitment to teacher education, equity, and excellence.
