Commensurate with experience
The Fairleigh Dickinson University Department of Literature,
Language, Writing, and Philosophy, located on the Florham Campus in
Madison NJ, is looking for part-time (adjunct) faculty to teach
in-person sections of first-year Spanish language courses starting
on Aug. 26 for the Fall 2019 semester. Sections are either 3 credit
hours on a Monday-Thursday or Tuesday-Friday schedule, or 1 credit
hour “practica” on Wednesdays. You can teach one section or
several. We’re especially eager for people who can teach before
3pm. If you are successful in the position, teaching should be
available every semester going forward.
Students taking Spanish at FDU cover a typically broad spectrum of
interests and motivations, with career plans that include business,
criminology, education, health sciences, hospitality and tourism,
law, politics, public service, and more. Some are heritage speakers
or have studied Spanish in high school; others are complete
beginners. Some are already convinced of the beauty and usefulness
of Spanish; others are satisfying a Gen Ed requirement and could
use convincing. We hope you can make a first- or second-semester
course not only rigorous but also engaging, relevant, and fun for
all our students!
The ideal candidate will have a PhD in Spanish or a relevant field
(Master’s acceptable), and evidence of excellence teaching college
Spanish. Any non-academic professional experience using Spanish is
also a plus.
Questions? Email Matthieu Boyd (email@example.com), chair of
Literature, Language, Writing, and Philosophy. Review of
ions will begin immediately: we expect to hire by the second week
of August at the very latest.
Advanced degree (PhD preferred, Master’s acceptable) in Spanish or
a relevant field.
Experience and evidence of effectiveness in teaching Spanish at the
Employment is contingent upon a satisfactory background check.
Candidates for hire will be required to sign a waiver authorizing
the background check and produce a Social Security Card.
