Position Summary:

The Department of Curriculum and Instruction seeks candidates who will bring or will establish a program of research centered on equity issues pertaining to bilingual-bicultural education and bi/multilingual learning contexts. This position responds to an increase in educational programs, locally and nationally, that deliver instruction in two (or more) languages for bi/multilingual students (or English Learners) who speak non-English home languages, particularly Spanish. This growth requires educational and language researchers to examine sociocultural, political, ideological, and historical factors that affect teaching, learning, and curriculum for bilingual-bicultural students. We seek candidates that employ quantitative, qualitative, or mixed-methods approaches to examine issues related to equitable learning opportunities and transformative schooling for bi/multilingual students. Candidates should demonstrate as well knowledge of relevant policies, pedagogical approaches, programs, and practices that pertain to this unique student population.

This candidate is expected to teach courses in critical issues in language education, language acquisition, use, and development, and instructional methods for serving the needs of bi/multilingual students in our undergraduate or graduate-level teacher education programs as well as courses in the department's graduate program. This expectation includes working with master's and doctoral students and participating in service to the department, campus, and scholarly community.
