lynch school of education
The Department of Teacher Education, Special Education, and Curriculum and Instruction seeks to fill a full-time, non-tenure track faculty position in ELL Education and Bilingualism, starting September 2013. Candidates should hold a doctoral degree in a field relevant to the education of English language learners (ELLs) and/or bilingualism and education, including, but not limited to, second language acquisition, educational linguistics, language and literacy development. Successful candidates should have substantial experience as practicing educators with a minimum of five years K-12 classroom teaching experience, preferably in an urban setting. Candidates should also have excellent teaching and mentoring skills for working with undergraduate and graduate students interested in teacher education and English learners. Experience in conducting teacher-centered research is also desirable. Responsibilities include teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in structured English immersion, content ESL, and/or sheltered teaching methods and teacher inquiry, as well as participation in service activities within the department. We are seeking a colleague who shares our commitment to urban education and social justice, particularly as the state of Massachusetts increases its focus on English learners across the Commonwealth. Applications will be reviewed beginning November 2012 until the position is filled. Please send your letter of interest, a current vitae, and three letters of reference to Dr. Mariela M. Páez (firstname.lastname@example.org), Chair, Search Committee, Lynch School of Education, Boston College, 211 Campion Hall, Chestnut Hill, MA 02467.
