The Department of Linguistics in the College of Literature, Science and Arts at the University of Michigan is seeking one LEO Lecturer I to teach two courses in each of the Fall 2021 and Winter 2022 semesters. The duration of this appointment would be from August 30, 2021 – April 30, 2022. The appointment effort is considered 67% for two courses per semester and is therefore benefits eligible.

Regarding pandemic precautions: academic year 2021-22 is currently expected to be in-person, but decisions will be made appropriate to circumstances at the relevant times, and course instruction may instead switch to virtual or hybrid. Duties of this position include teaching undergraduate courses at the 100-, 200-, and 300-levels, developing and providing to students a syllabus and materials using the online course management system, evaluating and grading students, holding regularly scheduled office hours, and handling routine matters related to instruction. Duties may also include teaching high enrollment courses and supervising Graduate Student Instructors (teaching assistants).

Must have an M.A. or PhD in Linguistics, or a closely related field, and demonstrated experience teaching linguistics at the college level. Applications will be evaluated based upon demonstrated subject matter expertise, successful performance in the classroom, and the needs of the department.

Apply online via the application link provided below.

Applicants must also include with this application the following materials:
- A curriculum vitae and cover letter that clearly states courses and/or subdisciplines the applicant would be able to teach.
- Teaching evaluations and two letters of recommendation. At least one of the recommendations should preferably comment on your teaching record.
