The successful applicant’s duties will include teaching (four hours per week) in our Romance Linguistics and language programmes at all undergraduate levels, teaching at the graduate level, occasional supervision of graduate students, maintaining an active research agenda, and participating in the academic life of the department.

A high proficiency in French is mandatory; applicants who are not fluent in German must acquire advanced communications skills within a reasonable period of time.

Teaching experience at the secondary level is an advantage, as is a good command of another Romance language.
