Position description

The Department of Linguistics within the Division of Social Sciences at UC San Diego is committed to building an excellent and diverse faculty, staff, and student body, and invites applications from candidates whose experience has prepared them to contribute to our commitment. The Department is currently accepting applications for temporary non-tenure track lecturers (Unit 18) to teach language courses in our Heritage Language Program for the 2022 - 2023 academic year.

Heritage languages are learned at home, and are different from the dominant language of the community. Our heritage language courses understand the distinct needs and challenges of heritage language students and address them using the communicative language methodology approach.

A list of heritage languages offered can be found at https://llp.ucsd.edu/hlp/index.html. Specifically, we are looking for qualified lecturers to teach heritage language courses in Armenian, Cantonese, Hindi, Korean, and Vietnamese.

Appointments may vary from part time to full time, up to a total of two courses per quarter, from one quarter up to one year in duration, with the possibility of extension in accordance with Department needs.

Salary: Salary is commensurate with qualifications and based on University of California pay scales.

The posting will remain open for the duration of the year to accommodate upcoming course needs or until the positions are filled.
