European Studies Lecturer
The University of Florida Center for European Studies (CES) is seeking a nine-month, non-tenure accruing lecturer position with the possibility of annual renewal in European Studies to begin August 16, 2019. Lecturers are highly valued by the CES and the university. Lecturers at UF have professional development opportunities, including a well-defined promotion structure, a professional development leave program, and access to travel funds for conference presentations.

CES is seeking applicants with superior promise who combine broad expertise in the field of European Studies with demonstrated excellence and substantial experience in teaching. Disciplinary backgrounds may include, but are not restricted to, Anthropology, Economics, Geography, Political Science, and/or Sociology. The candidate is expected to contribute to the teaching, and service missions of the UF Center for European Studies and the CLAS International Studies major and will have a 100% appointment in the Center. We particularly welcome applicants who can teach at least one of the required courses within the International Studies (IS) interdisciplinary undergraduate major (‘International Studies Perspectives’ and/or ‘International Studies Senior Research Seminar’). In addition, competitive candidates will be able to develop a version of the social science European Studies ‘European Experience’ (EUS2003) course for the Center for European Studies and at least one specifically Europe Union related course that could be included as a core course within the EU studies program. Anticipated teaching assignment for the position will be three courses per semester. We are also seeking someone with a willingness to contribute to the varied activities of the Center including campus and community outreach, new grant initiatives, and program development. Experience with study abroad program development and management also welcome.
