Job Title: Tenure-Track Assistant Professor of Applied Linguistics

Job Rank: Assistant Professor

Specialty Areas: Applied Linguistics


The Department of English and Linguistics is seeking applicants for one tenure track faculty position as an Assistant Professor of Applied Linguistics to start August 2022. This position is a full-time appointment on a nine-month contract. There are also summer teaching possibilities. This is an ideal opportunity for candidates who aspire to a position at a public liberal arts and sciences institution where teaching high-ability undergraduates is the primary mission.

The successful candidate will provide classroom instruction in applied linguistics, courses required for the add-on ESOL teaching certification, courses for the undergraduate linguistics major and/or English undergraduate and graduate programs. The candidate will also be expected to engage in scholarly activity, and perform other service to students (advising, mentoring, supervising internships), to the department, the University, and the community. There are also opportunities to participate in the rich interdisciplinary culture of the University.

The position requires a PhD (completed by the August start date) in Applied Linguistics and/or TESOL, with prior experience in teaching ESL, and the ability to teach a course on Language Policy and Planning.

Applicants will be evaluated on academic qualifications; teaching philosophy; experience in teaching ESL in diverse contexts; experience in teaching undergraduate and graduate students; demonstrated success in student-centered college-level teaching; commitment to diversity and inclusion; commitment to the liberal arts; evidence of effective communication and interpersonal skills; potential for scholarly achievement; and compatibility with the department's needs.

Salary is commensurate with experience and education. The benefits package includes life, health and disability insurance, retirement contributions, and reimbursed assistance for moving expenses. The awarding of tenure and promotion is based on success in the University’s teacher-scholar model.

The Department of English and Linguistics currently offers an undergraduate degree in linguistics as well as minors in linguistics and applied linguistics, and supports the add-on ESOL certification for Master of Arts in Education students. Depending on their areas of specialization and research interests, linguistics faculty also regularly teach courses for the general education program (first-year seminars and junior-level interdisciplinary seminars) as well as for the BA or MA in English, and several of Truman’s interdisciplinary minors.
