The Department of Spanish at Carleton College invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position in Spanish beginning September 1, 2022.

Required qualifications: Commitment to undergraduate teaching; demonstrated excellence in language teaching at all levels; ability to teach literature and culture in both Spanish and English; native or near-native fluency in Spanish and English; strong research credentials and a promising scholarly agenda.

We are looking to hire a colleague with a specialization in the field of Latin American literature and culture. Areas of specialty should complement those already offered by the department. The successful candidate will be expected to teach five courses per year, including courses in the area of specialization, and Spanish language and composition at all levels.  This person will participate in the creation and rotation to lead an off-campus study abroad program in Latin America. A commitment to offering mentorship to students of diverse backgrounds is expected. A PhD in a relevant field is expected by the time of appointment.

Carleton is a highly selective liberal arts college with a student body of approximately 2,000, located in the historic and thriving town of Northfield, Minnesota. We are within commuting distance of the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, whose greater metro area has a diverse population of three million people and a rich variety of cultural resources. Our department strives to provide our students—majors and non-majors alike—with practical language skills as well as intellectually demanding cultural study in a challenging, yet supportive, environment. The teaching load is five courses over three ten-week trimesters.

To apply, please visit the Carleton College website at and submit the following: a cover letter; CV; graduate transcript; teaching statement, including comments on working with a diverse student body; teaching portfolio with sample syllabi and course descriptions; writing sample; contact information for three reference letters, at least one of whom must address teaching. Full consideration will be given to applications submitted by October 15.

We are particularly interested in candidates committed to teaching a diverse student body. Carleton College does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, ethnicity, religion, sex, national origin, marital status, veteran status, actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, status with regard to public assistance, disability, or age in providing employment or access to its educational facilities and activities. Carleton is committed to developing its faculty to better reflect the diversity of our student body and American society.  Women and members of minority groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
