Careers

Assistant Professor, Spanish
Faculty of Arts and Science

MacEwan University inspires students through a powerful combination of academic excellence and personal learning experiences. Located in culturally enriched, downtown Edmonton, our comprehensive undergraduate university offers over 65 programs to 19,000 full- and part-time students. With a dedication to teaching excellence informed by scholarly research and creative activity, MacEwan provides an exceptional collaborative and supportive learning environment with a commitment to environmental sustainability and opportunities for community engagement. In support of faculty professional development, unique and enhanced services are provided through the MacEwan Office of Teaching and Learning.

The Department of Humanities in the Faculty of Arts and Science invites applications for a full-time tenure-track appointment in Spanish at the rank of Assistant Professor, commencing July 1, 2020, subject to final budgetary approval.

Although the area of research expertise is open, the successful candidate will have experience teaching Spanish language acquisition courses as well as Hispanic literatures and cultures. Experience teaching upper-level content courses (e.g. Translation or Spanish for the Professions) would be an asset. Native or near native fluency in Spanish is required.

The Department of Humanities is a multidisciplinary department housing programs in Classics, French, History, Philosophy, and Spanish. The Department values collaboration and integration, as evidenced by our great works-based Humanities courses and our emerging interest in digital humanities. Comfort in a multidisciplinary humanist environment and experience making connections between humanist disciplines are assets.

Preferred candidates will hold a Ph.D. in a relevant area of expertise and will demonstrate a primary commitment to undergraduate teaching and an ongoing research program.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, teaching dossier (including recent teaching evaluations), statement of research interests, sample of scholarly work, academic transcripts, along with the names and contact information of three professional referees. Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted by the Department Chair to provide three (3) letters of reference sent directly from referees.

Shortlisted candidates will be expected to contact three professional referees and arrange to have them each submit a letter of reference. Please ensure you have done this in advance in case you are shortlisted.

Questions about this opportunity may be addressed to Dr. Michael Carroll, Interim Chair, Department of Humanities.
