The University of Pittsburgh's Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures is hiring a Visiting Instructor I for its Korean Language Program.
The Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures at the University of Pittsburgh invites applications for the position of visiting instructor for its Korean language program, pending budgetary approval. The appointment will begin Fall 2024, and end Spring 2025. The candidate must hold an MA degree in teaching Korean as a second language, foreign language teaching, applied linguistics, or a related field by the time of appointment and possess broad competence in teaching Korean language courses. The successful candidate will teach six courses per year. The candidate must be a native or near-native user of Korean and English and should have at least two years’ experience teaching Korean language courses at a North American institution, preferably in person.
