Lecturer in Italian

The Department of Romance Languages and Literatures at Washington University in St. Louis seeks to hire a full-time lecturer in Italian, on the teaching track, starting in August 2024 for the 2024-2025 academic year.

This role requires duties equivalent to a full-time teaching load, which may include a combination of teaching and other departmental service and advising as appropriate. Teaching-track faculty in Romance Languages and Literatures regularly have an assignment of three courses per semester in addition to a service component.

Initial appointments at the rank of Lecturer are renewed on an annual basis, and reappointment is contingent upon a successful annual evaluation and review. Teaching track faculty will not be evaluated on or expected to engage in research or scholarship as part of their appointment.

Each year Washington University publishes a Safety and Security brochure that details what to do and whom to contact in an emergency.

We seek a colleague able to teach at all levels of our undergraduate program, whose teaching interests complement existing departmental strengths.
