The Department of English and Foreign Languages at Louisiana State University Shreveport invites applications for a full-time tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor beginning August 2023.  A Ph.D. in Linguistics and/or Spanish is preferred, but we will also consider advanced ABD’s.
