The Department of Asian Languages & Literature at the University of Washington anticipates the appointment of a full-time lecturer or full-time senior lecturer in Vietnamese beginning in the Autumn 2014 term.

At a minimum applicants should have an M.A. degree by the start of the appointment, must have native or near-native proficiency in Vietnamese, be fluent in English, and have at least one year of experience teaching at the college or university level. Beyond classroom teaching, applicants should expect to develop curricular and teaching materials, including web-based materials, and to train and supervise teaching assistants. Applicants with expertise in Vietnamese linguistics, literature, history, or related academic fields, whose teaching and research interests complement the University of Washington’s existing faculty and programs in Southeast Asian languages, literature, and cultures, are especially encouraged to apply. The anticipated term of this appointment is three years. University of Washington faculty engage in teaching, research, and service.
