The Department of Germanic and Slavic Studies at UC Santa Barbara invites applications for a pool of qualified temporary lecturers to teach courses in the German and Slavic Studies Department for upcoming openings. Screening of applicants is ongoing and will continue as needed. The number of positions varies from quarter to quarter, depending on the needs of the department.

Applicants must possess a minimum of a Master’s degree or equivalent foreign degree in an appropriate field and have a minimum of two years of language teaching experience in a college or university at the time of application. Native or near-native proficiency in Russian is required. Applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, teaching statement, teaching evaluations, and contact information for 3 references.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are core values at UC Santa Barbara. Our excellence relies on faculty, students, and staff who share our commitment to these values. Our program is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through teaching and service. Lecturers are not expected to engage in research, but staying up to date in research about second language acquisition is welcome.

Salary is commensurate with experience and qualifications. The use of a lecturer pool does not guarantee that an open position exists at the time you are applying. If there is no future review date specified, your application may not be considered at this time.
