Dear colleagues,
I'd like to respond to frequent inquiries concerning the Korean language position currently open at The George Washington University.
(1) The "special service faculty" are "teaching only" faculty, not required to do research or participate in administrative work. They have a heavier teaching load than average professors and also carry different titles from the other colleagues. 
(2) They will be housed in specific language departments (in the case of Korean, in the Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures) but work closely with the Language Center, as well.
(3) These positions are not tenure-track, but are full-time positions, and are renewable upon satisfactory performance. 
(4) Salary is competitive.
(5) Not limited to U.S. citizens or green-card holders. GW will try to help successful candidates get appropriate visas if necessary.
(6) The review of applications starts very soon. The positions will be filled only when the college-wide search committee is completely happy with their choices. 
(7) Two candidates for the Korean position will be selected for campus interviews and teaching demonstrations.
(8) Please do not write to me, but address all questions and send appllications to Maxine Cogar, as indicated in the advertisement copied below.
