The School of Education in the College of Education and Human Development at the University of Delaware invites applications for a continuing-track faculty position with a focus on the education of multilingual learners to begin Fall 2024 at the rank of assistant professor. As a Continuing-Track (CT) faculty member, the successful candidate will have opportunities to teach undergraduate and graduate-level courses, take on leadership responsibilities in the college, and contribute to improving excellence in diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice. Additionally, CT faculty can gain promotion, apply for sabbatical leaves and enjoy the security of a multi-year appointment. Qualified candidates should be interested in establishing a long-term career at the University of Delaware. The start date of the position is August 16, 2024.

Applicants should have significant experience and expertise in instruction for MLs to be suitable for this position. Furthermore, applicants should have experience designing and teaching courses for prospective and/or practicing teachers in the areas of P-12 language and literacy instruction, content-area learning, and methods for supporting multilingual learners. Preference will be given to candidates who also have previous experience teaching language and literacy in the content-areas at the P-12 level, and with a specialization in working with MLs. The successful candidate should be willing to teach both face-to-face and fully online undergraduate and graduate courses. Responsibilities will include pre-service teacher field instruction and teaching undergraduate or graduate courses. While this position is a teaching and service focused position, we also seek candidates who are interested in applied research, community engagement, and program development. Finally, we are particularly interested in candidates who have demonstrated a commitment to serving multilingual, culturally, and linguistically diverse learners in educational settings through teaching, research, service, and/or public engagement.
