The Director will be appointed at the rank of Senior Preceptor. The five-year appointment is expected to begin July 1, 2015 and is fully renewable, contingent upon review and approval of the divisional dean. Among the duties of the Director will be to head and direct the Korean Language Program, develop a creative and well-sequenced curriculum, train and supervise language instructors, and teach at least three courses per year. The Director will also serve as a member of the department’s Language Program Committee. In addition, it is expected that the Director will oversee the language component of Harvard Summer School/Korea (a summer study abroad program in Seoul offering intensive credit-bearing Korean language instruction) to insure coordination with the department’s KLP in Cambridge.

An outstanding doctoral record in language pedagogy, applied linguistics, or a related field is required. Other qualifications for the position include substantial and innovative language teaching experience in Korean language programs, expertise and experience in curriculum and material development, plus the use of digital resources and technology in language instruction, and evidence of scholarly work in language teaching, linguistics, or comparative culture. Candidates should have native or near-native ability in the production and comprehension of spoken and written modern standard Korean and English, plus proven skills in language program leadership and personnel management.

Candidates should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of teaching philosophy and experience, recent teaching evaluations, and any other relevant materials available for review.  Candidates are required to submit names and emails of 3 references. The application will be considered complete only when all three recommendations have been received by the department.
