A PhD in hand or advanced ABD status is required, as is Russian language proficiency sufficient to teach language at all undergraduate levels. Preference will be shown to applicants who will have a PhD in hand by the beginning of our autumn semester (last week of August, 2017), but advanced ABD candidates may also be considered for a Visiting Instructor appointment. Preference will be shown to applicants who can teach a mixed graduate/undergraduate course on Vladimir Nabokov (which is already on the books and already has enrollment; PhD required), but we are prepared to adjust the teaching duties to accommodate a strong candidate who is (understandably!) not prepared to teach this specific course on short notice.
Applicants should submit a letter of application, a CV, and names and contact information for three professional referees (letters of recommendation are not required at this time) to Monika Losagio at email@example.com.
