Job Description:

The Department of Romance Languages at Binghamton University is seeking to hire a lecturer in French, beginning in August 2024, to teach courses primarily at the elementary level. This is a full-time position (up to a three-year contract) with possible renewal. The teaching load is three courses per semester during the academic year. Language courses at the elementary and intermediate levels are taught with coordination throughout the department. We seek candidates who are enthusiastic about teaching elementary and intermediate language classes and are able to bring knowledge of Francophone cultures into the classroom.

Apart from teaching, this position involves departmental service, which includes working with and mentoring students outside the classroom (e.g. conversation tables, internships, special event programming). Lecturers also serve as departmental advisors to a select number of majors and minors in their respective language division. Thus, in addition to teaching, the position requires an interest in interacting with students outside the classroom and working with colleagues to develop innovative extracurricular projects.

The lecturer is expected to actively contribute to the department's mission of advancing a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion through teaching and service, as well as through engagement with faculty, students, and staff.



Candidates should hold a Master's Degree (e.g. MA, MAT, MSEd) or higher related to French, and have a track record of successful teaching at the elementary and intermediate levels in French, preferably under the guidance of a coordinator and in close collaboration with colleagues. Applicants must have native or near-native fluency in both French and English.
