SPANISH TRANSLATION:  The Department of Modern Languages at Hartwick College invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor starting in August 2018, pending final administrative approval.  We seek candidates with expertise in Translation and Interpretation to support the Translation & Interpretation Concentration in Spanish currently being developed. The successful candidate should also have scholarly expertise in Latin American studies, contemporary peninsular culture, or US Latino studies, with preference given to those with or prepared to seek certification by The National Board of Certification for Medical Interpreters or an equivalent certification.  Minimum qualifications include Ph.D. in Spanish or related field by the time of the appointment. Native or near-native proficiency in Spanish and English required. Specific teaching assignments will include Spanish for the Professions, Translation Studies, Interpretation Studies, as well as undergraduate language, literature, and culture courses at all levels (introductory to senior capstone), and possibly general education courses, including First Year Seminars.  Teaching load will average 20 semester credit hours or their equivalent per academic year, and all faculty members teach during the College’s distinctive four-week January Term.   The successful candidate must be committed to excellence and innovation in undergraduate teaching, active engagement in scholarly or creative activities, and working closely with students in a small college environment.  Committee service and academic advising also are expected for tenure and promotion.
