Arabic Visiting Faculty

The Department of Asian and Near Eastern Languages (ANEL) at Brigham Young University seeks to hire a full-time, non-tenure track visiting Arabic faculty member to begin teaching in Fall 2020. Ph.D. preferred, MA required in Arabic language teaching, Arabic literature or linguistics, Middle Eastern Studies, or Second Language Acquisition (degree must be in hand by the start date). The deadline for applications is 5 December 2019.

We seek candidates with significant training in foreign language teaching and learning; a minimum of near-native fluency in Arabic; at least 3 years of experience in teaching various levels of Arabic, but especially advanced-level students at the postsecondary level using a proficiency-based, communicative methodology. Desired qualifications include previous experience working with students in the context of intensive language programs; teacher training and materials development; and experience with using an integrated curriculum that reflects the sociolinguistic realities of the Arab world. The teaching load is three or four courses in any level of Arabic each semester, depending on the needs of the department.

Please list the individual contact information for each of your three recommenders on the faculty application. At some point during the selection process they may be contacted to submit their letters of reference electronically. Please attach your updated Curriculum Vitae, cover letter, and teaching philosophy to the faculty application using the link below. Thanks for your time and attention.
