The Department of Asian Languages and Literatures at Carleton College invites applications for a full-time visiting assistant professor in its dynamic and growing Japanese program, to begin September 1, 2020. This is a one year appointment, with the possibility of renewal. We seek candidates who can teach Japanese courses at all levels, and are passionate about teaching in a liberal arts setting. Native or near-native fluency in both Japanese and English is required.
The candidate will have Ph.D. completed or substantially completed in Japanese literature and will have experience in teaching Japanese language at the college level. Specialty is open, but the successful candidate will also bring expertise in a second field that will expand interdisciplinary offerings at the college and attract students from outside Japanese Studies (e.g. premodern studies, translation studies, linguistics). The successful candidate will also demonstrate a willingness to participate actively in the life of the department and to contribute to extra-curricular and service activities. Teaching load is six courses per year. The Carleton calendar includes three 10-week terms.
Applicants should have a strong commitment to teaching Japanese language to undergraduates. The position will involve teaching in both the Japanese language sequence as well as literature courses in the specialty.
