Lecturer positions are academic-year, term faculty appointments, with summer session appointment possible on the same basis as for other faculty. Although they are not tenure-track, Lecturers are considered regular (not temporary) faculty.

An M.A. in language acquisition or Korean language pedagogy is required, and a Ph.D. is preferred. Also required are native or near native fluency in Korean and competency in both spoken and written English. Candidates should have experience in teaching Korean language to English-speaking students at the college level. Responsibilities also include coordinating Korean language courses and developing a Korean minor or certificate in the Department. The ability to teach courses in either Korean linguistics or Korean popular culture is desired.

Candidates must send letter of interest, curriculum vitae, and a teaching portfolio that includes a list of courses taught and teaching evaluations to the Search Committee via online application at http://jobs.uiowa.edu and must submit three e-mail addresses of recommenders online to the same link.

The Department, the Division, and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences are strongly committed to gender and ethnic diversity; the strategic plans of the University, the College, the Division, and the Department reflect this commitment.
