Job Description:

The Department of Applied Linguistics is seeking a full time, non-tenure track Lecturer, beginning September 1, 2022.

Fulltime Lecturers have a teaching load of four courses per semester. However, three course load reductions will be given for this position, bringing the effective annual load to 2-3, as the Lecturer hired will have additional responsibilities of advising Master’s students, evaluating capstone final exercises both in December and May, reviewing MA applications, serving on three committees, assisting and mentoring master’s students opting to write a thesis, supporting PhD students preparing their qualifying paper, serving on three dissertation committees, and helping PhD students to develop publication goals. The Lecturer must be able to teach both foundational courses at the master’s level (APLING 603, - Language, Identity, and Culture and 605 – Theories and Principles of Language Instruction) and advanced master’s and PhD level courses in Sociolinguistics, Discourse Analysis, and Qualitative Research methods.

Application instructions:

A PhD in Applied Linguistics is required. Candidates should include a letter describing their teaching interests and experience, curriculum vitae, statement of teaching and supervisory philosophy, sample syllabus, and contact information for three letters of reference. Application review will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.

UMass Boston requires all employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19 and to confirm proof of their vaccination status including booster. Exemptions from the vaccine requirement will be permitted only for qualifying religious or medical reasons. Regardless of vaccination status, you must wear a face covering in public indoor spaces on campus.

Working at University of Massachusetts Boston

The University of Massachusetts Boston is nationally recognized as a model of excellence for urban public universities. The scenic waterfront campus is located next to the John F. Kennedy Library, with easy access to downtown Boston. 

The second-largest campus in the UMass system, UMass Boston combines a small-college experience with the vast resources of a major research university. With a 16:1 student-to-faculty ratio, students easily interact with professors because most teaching occurs in small class sizes. Ninety-three percent of full-time faculty hold the highest degree in their fields.

UMass Boston’s academic excellence is reflected by a growing student body of nearly 16,000 undergraduate and graduate students. The university’s eight colleges offer more than 100 undergraduate programs and 50 graduate programs. The University Honors Program serves 300 students who thrive on intellectual challenge. Enriched courses probe more deeply into theory or venture further into application.

UMass Boston’s diverse student body provides a global context for student learning, and its location in a major U.S. city provides connections to employers in industries such as finance, health care, technology, service, and education, offering students opportunities to gain valuable in-school experience via internships, clinicals, and other career-related placements.

More than 100 student organizations — including clubs, literary magazines, newspaperradio stationart gallery, and 16 NCAA Division III sports teams — offer a rich campus life. Students live throughout Greater Boston and in apartment communities just steps from the campus, and enjoy the rich amenities, cultural attractions, and educational opportunities that make the city the biggest and best college town in the nation.
