The University of California, Irvine seeks a Lecturer with Potential Security of Employment (LPSOE) for the Program in Academic English in the School of Humanities. Requirements: Candidates must have a PhD in Applied Linguistics, Composition/Rhetoric, or Education or a closely related field by the start of the appointment on 1 July 2018. Preference will be given to candidates with demonstrated expertise in one or more of the following areas: critical applied linguistics, global Englishes, world Englishes, multilingual writing, L2 writing, ELF, CDA, TESOL, or EAP. At least 3 years of teaching experience in higher education is recommended. Preference will be given to candidates with experience or demonstrated interest in ESL program administration. The successful candidate will be appointed at the rank of Lecturer with Potential Security of Employment (LPSOE). The L(P)SOE series is a University of California-wide designation for academic senate faculty whose primary responsibilities include administration and teaching, with secondary responsibilities in research. Like Assistant Professors, LPSOE are evaluated for reappointment and merit salary increases every two years and within eight years (or fewer) are evaluated for promotion to Lecturer with Security of Employment (LSOE), which has the permanence of a tenured position. Promotion from LPSOE to Lecturer with Security of Employment (LSOE; the equivalent of tenure) requires, in addition to excellent teaching and service, that the candidate make outstanding and recognized contributions to the development of their discipline and/or of pedagogy. As a member of the University of California Academic Senate, the successful candidate will be eligible for UCI's attractive faculty housing, medical, and retirement programs. LPSOEs are expected to continue to develop as professionals in their respective fields by attending relevant professional meetings, reviewing programs, and collaborating with scholars outside the university. Please apply online at: https://recruit.ap.uci.edu/apply/JPF04279 and submit a cover letter that outlines experiences in teaching, research, and language program administration; a curriculum vitae; a 20-30 page writing sample; evidence of teaching effectiveness (e.g., statement of teaching philosophy, sample syllabi, sample lesson plans; qualitative and quantitative student evaluations of teaching); and at least three letters of reference. A separate statement that addresses past and/or potential contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion must also be included in the application materials. Completed applications received by 30 November 2017 will receive full consideration. Preliminary interviews will be conducted via Skype or phone.
