Visiting Assistant Professor of German
Middlebury College

Middlebury College invites applications for a 3-year position as Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of German to start in the fall of 2020. Near-native language proficiency in German is required. The area of expertise for the position is open, but preference will be given to candidates whose specializations complement (rather than overlap with) the specializations of the German department's faculty.

The successful candidate will enthusiastically teach German courses at all levels, from beginning to advanced German, including upper-level courses in their disciplinary area taught in German. Candidates should hold a PhD or at least have near-term plans for completion of their doctorate by the time of appointment. Also, substantial experience teaching German at the college level is required.

We strive to make our campus a respectful, engaged community that embraces difference, with all complexity and individuality that each person brings.

Through Interfolio, please submit a letter of application detailing your passion for teaching and your dedication to current and future research. In a separate statement, please address how your teaching, scholarship, mentorship and/or community service might support our commitment to diversity and inclusion. Also required are a curriculum vitae and three current confidential letters of recommendation, at least two of which must speak to your teaching abilities. Letters of recommendation have to be submitted directly by the recommenders on Interfolio. Email and paper applications will not be accepted.

Review of applications will begin immediately, and will continue until the position is filled. The application deadline is December 15, 2019. We will be conducting preliminary interviews in January, 2020.
