The Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures at the University of Notre Dame invites applications for a full-time visiting lecturer position in Japanese language beginning no later than August 23, 2021. This is a one-year appointment, with the possibility of renewal. Responsibilities include teaching beginning through advanced Japanese, active involvement in language and culture activities, as well as close collaboration with faculty to build a rigorous and cohesive program. The position offers a competitive salary commensurate with qualifications and experience.

As an international, Catholic, research university, the University of Notre Dame has made a significant commitment to furthering Asian studies, as evidenced in the founding of the Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies and the opening of a new graduate School of Global Affairs, both of which collaborate regularly with our growing Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures. Information about the University is available at http://www.nd.edu; information about the Program in Japanese Language and Culture and the Department can be found at http://eastasian.nd.edu.

Appointment is contingent upon the successful completion of a background check. Applicants will be asked to identify all felony convictions and/or pending felony charges. Felony convictions do not automatically bar an individual from employment. Each case will be examined separately to determine the appropriateness of employment in the particular position. Failure to be forthcoming or dishonesty with respect to felony disclosures can result in the disqualification of a candidate.

The University of Notre Dame does not sponsor any visa applications for this position. The successful candidate must be able to provide evidence of identity and legal authorization to work in the United States.

We are seeking highly skilled language instructors with native or near-native proficiency in Japanese and English. Candidates are expected to have an M.A. or higher degree in teaching Japanese as a foreign language, linguistics, second language acquisition, or related field; and demonstrated success teaching Japanese at the college/university level in the United States.

ABDs and Ph.Ds are encouraged to apply.

Application Instructions
Candidates should submit a letter of application, current curriculum vitae, statement of teaching philosophy, teaching evaluations, and three letters of recommendation. Candidates are also encouraged to provide an online link to an unedited video clip of classroom teaching accompanied by the corresponding lesson plan, if these materials are available. Review of applications will begin July 26 and continue until the position is filled.

Questions should be sent to the Search Committee Chair, Professor Michael Brownstein, at mbrownst@nd.edu.
