Position description

The East Asian Languages and Cultural Studies Department invites applications for a pool of qualified temporary lecturers to teach courses for the upcoming openings. Screening of applicants is ongoing and will continue as needed. The number of positions varies from quarter to quarter, depending on the Department’s needs. Positions may range from 33% to 100% time.

Interested candidates must possess a master’s degree in a relevant field at the time of application. Two years of previous teaching experience at a university is required at the time of appointment. A Ph.D. in a relevant field is preferred and five or more years of teaching experience is preferred at the time of appointment.
The Department is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through teaching, research and service.

To apply, please go to the following link: https://recruit.ap.ucsb.edu/JPF01900. Applicants must submit a cover letter; C.V.; and a summary of teaching experience and teaching evaluations. Applicants must also submit contact information for three references.

The posting will remain open until October 31, 2021 to accommodate department needs. As Lecturer needs arise throughout the year, the department analyst may set new review dates to allow for additional applicants. If you would like to continue to be considered after that time, and the pooled position is advertised again, you will need to submit a new application.

Please note: The use of a lecturer pool does not guarantee that an open position exists at the time you are applying. See the review date specified in UC Recruit to learn whether the department is currently reviewing applications for an upcoming opening. If there is no future review date specified, your application may not be considered at this time. Candidates must be legally authorized to work in the United States without the need for employer sponsorship.
