Title Visiting Assistant Professor of Education Posting Number F00202JP Department Education Position Summary
The Bowdoin College Education Department invites applications for a visiting assistant professor position to begin July 1, 2023. This position, pending administrative approval, is full-time with a teaching load of two courses per semester. It is a one-year position, with the possibility of a second year upon successful review and reappointment. While the area of specialization is open, the committee has a particular interest in candidates specializing in middle school or high school literacies, learning in adolescence, culturally-competent teaching, approaches to meeting the educational needs of diverse communities (especially immigrant and refugee populations), math education, and/or secondary teacher education. PhD preferred; ABD considered. Experience teaching or otherwise working closely with secondary-level students is highly desirable.
Bowdoin College’s Education Department frequently partners with the Portland, ME public schools where 25% of students are designated English Language Learners and nearly 50% of students identify as students of color. As a refugee resettlement community, Portland offers a unique opportunity to study topics such as trauma-informed practices and to research the experiences of Muslim students and their families.
Successful candidates will demonstrate a strong commitment to undergraduate liberal arts education and to inclusive excellence in undergraduate teaching. For a description of inclusive excellence, please consult the following resource: Williams, et. al., Toward a Model of Inclusive Excellence .

Bowdoin is a learning community that warmly welcomes people of all backgrounds. We encourage applications from candidates committed to the instruction and support of a diverse student population and from those who will enrich and contribute to the College’s multifaceted diversity. We especially encourage people from historically excluded groups to apply. Bowdoin College offers opportunities for professional development, including annual conference travel support, mentoring programming, and grants to support scholarly research.
Bowdoin accepts only electronic applications. Please submit a c.v., a cover letter, teaching evaluations, and the names and contact information for three references who have agreed to provide letters of recommendation. Letter writers will be automatically contacted upon submission of your application.
Review of applications will begin on November 20, 2022 and continue until the position is filled.
Founded in 1794 on the Maine coast, Bowdoin is one of the oldest and most selective coeducational, residential liberal arts colleges in the country. Located in Brunswick, a 30-minute drive north of Portland, the College is in an area rich with natural beauty and year-round outdoor activities. Bowdoin’s reputation rests on the excellence of its faculty and students, intimate size, strong sense of community, and commitment to diversity (40% students of color, 7% international students and approximately 17% first generation college students).
