Position Details

Position Description

The Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies in the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Washington (Seattle) invites applications for a 50% Part-time Lecturer. This is a non-tenure-track position with a 9-month (mid-September through mid-June) service period. The initial appointment, with an anticipated start date of September 16, 2024.

The Jackson School brings a distinctive intellectual lens to questions of diversity, equity, and inclusion. We model socially inclusive approaches to addressing practical problems in the world today through applied research opportunities that connect students to grassroots communities, policy communities, and transnational actors. We train students to work inclusively and to understand the significance of linguistic, religious, and cultural literacy. Our work de-centers U.S.-centric conceptions of the world and confronts the historical legacies of colonialism as well as inequalities within and between nation-states.  Our vision of public engagement has a strong emphasis on equity, justice, human rights, and respect for the histories and knowledge of diverse peoples and places across national borders.

The Jackson School of International Studies seeks an experienced teacher of the Modern Greek language at university level.  The successful candidate must have a demonstrated commitment to innovative and effective pedagogy; ability to address questions of diversity, equity and inclusion in courses; and expertise in working with diverse student populations. Since our Modern Greek language courses are offered remotely the candidate should also have experience in designing and teaching courses in this format.

The successful applicant will join our faculty as a 50% part-time lecturer for a 9-month service period. Positions in this title are non-tenure track and not promotion-eligible. Appointments may be for multiple years (1-5 years). Reappointments are contingent upon instructional needs, performance, and funding. The start date is September 16, 2024. We encourage applicants whose interests align with our commitment to fostering diversity and inclusivity to apply.

Washington State Law requires that this ad list a binding salary range. The appointment will be 50% FTE at 50% of the full-time rate. The full-time base salary range for this position will be $4,800 - $6,700 per month, prorated based on the appointment FTE, and commensurate with experience and qualifications, or as mandated by a U.S. Department of Labor prevailing wage determination.
