Lecturer in French (2023-24, non-tenure-track)

The Department of French and Italian at Dartmouth College invites applications for a full-time non-tenure-track Lecturer for the 2023-24 academic year, with possibility of renewal.


Lecturers teach six French language courses over the course of three, ten-week trimesters (fall, winter, spring) with active integration into the work of our department. We seek skilled, creative instructors who thrive in a collaborative environment. We are especially interested in candidates with a demonstrated interest in program building (e.g., curriculum development, French club, affinity house, etc.) and inclusive pedagogical practices in the classroom and in course content/design.


The Department of French and Italian, and Dartmouth as a whole, are highly committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive population of students, faculty, and staff. We are especially interested in applicants who are able to work effectively with students, faculty, and staff from all backgrounds, including but not limited to: racial and ethnic minorities, women, individuals who identify with LGBTQ+ communities, individuals with disabilities, individuals from lower income backgrounds, and/or first-generation college graduates. Applicants should state in their letter of application how their teaching, research, service, and/or life experiences prepare them to advance Dartmouth’s commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusion.


We expect to make one appointment beginning September 1, 2023. This is a benefits-eligible position with a competitive salary.


Ph.D. or ABD in French or Francophone Studies, applied linguistics, second language acquisition, language pedagogy, or a closely related field. Applicants should have native or near-native fluency in French (ACTFL “superior” or equivalent) and a proven record of teaching language at all levels.
