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.
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 September 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 to: apply.interfolio.com/88745

Welcome to the University of Pennsylvania! Penn is the largest private employer in Philadelphia and is a world-renowned leader in education, research, and innovation.
Across our 12 highly-regarded schools, more than 25,000 students, and more than 4,000 faculty members, we become one university: a wide-ranging, ever-changing community that draws its strength from a multitude of races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, historical traditions, ages, religions, disabilities, veteran status, interests, perspectives, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
Penn carries on the principles and spirit of its founder, Benjamin Franklin: entrepreneurship, innovation, invention, outreach, and a pragmatic love of knowledge. Franklin's practical outlook has remained a driving force in the university's development. To learn more, visit About Penn.
As engines of knowledge and new ideas, universities have the unique potential to define the future rather than be defined by it; to pioneer change rather than merely manage it. To do so requires a plan both visionary and pragmatic. The Penn Compact 2022 motivates community members to innovate, be radically inclusive, and positively impact their local, national, and global communities.
Penn’s fundamental priorities — increasing access, integrating knowledge and engaging locally, nationally and globally — are supported by the three core values that make us uniquely Penn: inclusion, innovation, and impact.

Understanding and appreciating diversity is one of Penn's most important priorities and is fundamental to success in today's world.
Penn adheres to a policy that prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, creed, national or ethnic origin, citizenship status, age, disability, veteran status, or any other legally protected class.
