The Department of Language Science is establishing a pool of qualified applicants to be considered to serve as temporary, part-time Lecturers during the 2022-23 academic year.

In addition, successful applicants would be eligible to apply for a research appointment.

These positions may be available during the Fall 2022, Winter 2023 and/or Spring 2023 based on departmental needs. We are seeking candidates with strong teaching credentials who can contribute to the quality of our undergraduate Language Science program and potentially contribute to our research program.

Screening of applicants is ongoing and will continue as needed. If you would like to be considered after that time and the pooled position is advertised again, you will need to submit a new application.
