The University of Rhode Island seeks to fill a full-time, non-tenure-track position at the rank of lecturer in French Language and Culture, beginning Fall 2019. URI’s French program is communicative and proficiency-oriented.

The successful candidate will join a dynamic and vibrant Department of Modern and Classical Languages and Literatures comprised of innovative educators and scholars devoted to working with our students so that they may achieve ambitious proficiency goals and develop intercultural competence.

The lecturer will teach beginning and intermediate courses. The lecturer will assist the French section with program promotion, course coordination, curricular enhancements and extra-curricular activities, and will pursue ACTFL proficiency training. The duties could at times include coordinating the beginning and intermediate language program and overseeing the work of part-time instructors teaching in the program. Mandatory annual reviews are linked to contract renewal and opportunities for advancement.
