Johns Hopkins ESL lecturer position

Johns Hopkins University
Center for Language Education
LECTURER IN ESL (ITA)

The Center for Language Education at Johns Hopkins University seeks a full-time Lecturer in English as a Second Language (ESL) in the International Teaching Assistant (ITA) Program. The position begins in August 2012. The lecturer will oversee and implement the university-wide ITA program, training graduate teaching assistants who teach courses as a TA in their home department. The lecturer will teach three terms – summer (intensive ITA training for three weeks in August), fall and spring (two courses with single/multiple sections per term). In addition to teaching these courses, the lecturer is expected to develop and provide administration for psychometrically sound language assessment procedures and implement ITA screening, placement, progress, and post-test evaluation systems.

Substantial administrative and/or supervisory experience is required in ITA program areas, and a background in language assessment/testing is preferred. A Ph.D. is preferred at the time of appointment in TESOL, applied linguistics, or related fields. Applicants with a MA degree in TESOL, applied linguistics, or related fields will also be considered but must have extensive experience in ESL/EFL/ITA administration, supervision, and teaching at the university level as well as strong computer literacy (Excel, PowerPoint, etc.).

Interested candidates should send the following items by e-mail:
1. Letter of application (cover letter) including statement of teaching philosophy
2. Curriculum vitae
3. Three names of references with e-mail addresses
4. A website that includes a video demonstration of your teaching. (We do not accept a DVD by surface mail. A YouTube link with password is acceptable.)
