Assistant or Associate Professor of Education in Educational LinguisticsLocation:
Philadelphia, PAOpen Date:
Jun 4, 2021Description:
The Educational Linguistics Division at the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education seeks to hire a Professor of Education at the Assistant or Associate level whose research specializes in K-12 Anti-Racist Language Teacher Education, and whose teaching, leadership, and scholarship will build connections between our current certificate program in TESOL and the needs of teacher apprentices enrolled as students in Teacher Education programs at our School.
With this position, Educational Linguistics at Penn/GSE will expand our enduring commitment to teaching and scholarship that focuses on preparing teachers to work in linguistically diverse classrooms with a specific focus on students officially classified as English Learners, a student population of growing complexity and one at the center of current educational debates around the intersection of race, language, and immigration. We seek to recruit an early- or mid-career scholar who is committed to preparing teachers to enact antiracist pedagogy in linguistically diverse contexts, whose teaching and scholarship focus on the study of language in its social context(s), and who can extend these concerns to address a pressing need for research, teaching, and leadership centered on Anti-Racist Language Teacher Education. Qualifications:
Ideal candidates will also have experience in language learning and teaching in K-12 schools in national or international contexts. We are interested in a scholar whose abilities and interests relate to students at both doctoral and master's levels, and who can offer courses, as well as supervise, guide, and conduct research germane to the interests of professional educators and educational researchers. We anticipate that the appointment would be made at the assistant or associate professor level and will begin July 1, 2022.
We will begin reviewing applications on September 1, 2021, but will continue to consider new applications until the position is filled. Please submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, two publications, and names and contact information of three references by September 1, 2021.
