Dutch Language Lector/Senior LectorI
Yale University

Yale seeks a full-time Lector/Senior Lector I in Dutch based in the Germanic Languages and Literatures Department, beginning July 1, 2013 for a three year term, renewable. Primary duties include teaching five courses per year including elementary, intermediate and advanced Dutch courses using an integrated skills approach.  Duties include responding to needs of graduate and undergraduate students, possibly with “advanced tutorial courses” or a graduate reading course in Dutch.  Participate in program building in the Department and more broadly for European Studies at Yale, specifically, in developing overseas language and other study opportunities related to larger research and teaching interests relevant to Dutch.

Training in second-language acquisition and language teaching methodology as well as experience with technologically-mediated language learning and teaching and learning are a plus.


Salary is commensurate with experience and background. Yale University is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer; applications from women and minorities are encouraged.
