The Department of Spanish and Portuguese at Yale University invites applicants for two full-time teaching positions as Lector or Senior Lector I of Portuguese, to begin July 2024. The initial appointment will be for three years, with the possibility of renewal depending on successful performance and ongoing curricular need.
Responsibilities consist of teaching up to three courses per semester of basic and intermediate-level language courses, including developing innovative teaching materials and integrating computer-assisted instruction, in the context of post-communicative teaching approaches, with specific interest in multiliteracies pedagogies.
Salary and rank are commensurate with experience and qualifications. If the initial appointment is at the rank of Lector, a promotion review for Senior Lector I must take place in the fifth year or earlier. Senior Lectors at Yale are expected to participate in teaching-related professional activities (e.g., workshops, seminars, training activities, conferences) and have no limits on reappointment, provided the performance is successful and there is ongoing curricular need.
Lectors are eligible for Yale’s generous package of benefits, including health coverage, and they are encouraged to participate in the wide range of professional development opportunities offered through the Center for Language Study, the Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning, and the Faculty of Arts and Sciences Dean’s Office.
