Brandeis University, Department of Near Eastern and Judaic Studies, invites applications for a full-time, renewable lectureship in Arabic language beginning Fall 2017. The Department seeks a dedicated, meticulous, and passionate Arabist willing to contribute to the long-term quality, stability, and development of the Arabic program at Brandeis, particularly at the elementary and intermediate levels of instruction. Arabic courses at Brandeis service a wide range of student interests and programs, most notably the undergraduate Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies program and Brandeis’ graduate program in Arabic and Islamic Civilizations. The successful candidate must be able to employ an effective proficiency-based approach, including a rigorous and systematic approach to Arabic grammar.
In addition to fluency in English, the successful candidate will have: (1) native or near-native proficiency in spoken and written Modern Standard Arabic, combined with an enthusiasm for teaching MSA as a dynamic and vibrant living language; (2) a Master’s degree (or equivalent) in Arabic language and/or literature, language pedagogy, applied linguistics, or a related field; and, (3) a demonstrated record of excellence in university-level Arabic instruction. Length of initial contract will depend on experience and will be subject to renewal, normally on a multi-year basis, contingent upon performance and the continuing needs of the Arabic program. Salary and benefits are competitive.
Interested candidates should submit the following to AcademicJobsOnline at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/7819: a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, statement of teaching philosophy, representative student evaluations, and three letters of recommendation. Brandeis University is an equal opportunity employer committed to building a culturally diverse intellectual community, and strongly encourages applications from women and minorities. First consideration will be given to candidates whose complete application files are received by October 25, 2016.
