The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to engage in non-discriminatory hiring practices. We urge employers not to discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, disability, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

English Language Learning/Bilingual Education

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. For instructions about submitting materials, please visit
the application URL below. Follow the directions for self-registration and
uploading of PDF's, and obtain the URL for your letters of reference
writers. The contact person for questions is Ms. Helen Clifton, contact
information below. Please arrange for letters of recommendation to be sent
to us directly, and refer your referees to the University's statement on
confidentiality, found at http://apo.chance.berkeley.edu/evalltr.html

The Graduate School of Education is interested in candidates who will
contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education through
their teaching, research, and service. UC Berkeley is committed to
addressing the family needs of faculty, including dual-career couples and
single parents.

The University of California, Berkeley is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative
Action Employer.
