Summer Teaching Positions in Chinese
Beloit College
June 10 - August 7, 2009

Senior instructors and graduate teaching assistants are needed
for Beloit College's summer intensive Chinese language program (June 10
- August 7, 2009). In 2009, we expect to offer first- through
fourth-year Mandarin Chinese. Each level, with an average enrollment of
ten students, has one instructor and one graduate teaching assistant.
Instructors collaborate with each other and the CLS director on
curriculum, syllabi, and instruction. Duties include classroom teaching
and evaluation, and assistance with organizing cultural activities for
the program. Instructors will be expected to live on campus (single
occupancy), eat meals with the students at lunch and dinner in the
dining commons, and be available to students evenings and weekends.

Minimum qualifications for senior instructors include an M.A.,
teaching experience preferably in an immersion environment, native or
near-native proficiency in Mandarin Chinese, and advanced proficiency
in English. An advanced degree in Chinese, applied linguistics, or
foreign language education is desirable. For graduate teaching
assistants, an M.A. in progress is required. Salary is competitive, and
includes room and board. Employment is contingent upon new employees
providing documents verifying U.S. citizenship or, for non-citizens,
documents verifying legal permission to work in the United States.
