The Department of Education at St. Lawrence University invites applications for a tenure track position at the Assistant or Associate level in secondary education/teaching methods. Our successful candidate must appreciate the strengths of a liberal arts education for teachers. The successful candidate will teach classes for those seeking initial teacher certification, at both the undergraduate and graduate level. The department has a student-centered orientation and is also interested in preparing students to teach in schools that feature project-based learning. Candidates should have knowledge of Common Core Standards and the Teacher Performance Assessment; design and teach courses that introduce students to diversity and social justice issues in schools and classrooms; and be willing to actively engage with local schools. Qualifications include an earned doctorate in an appropriate field (ideally, curriculum development, teacher education, literacy education), experience in secondary schools, and a clearly defined research agenda. The ability to teach a course on Language Acquisition and Literacy Development is desirable, but not required. Those candidates who apply at the advanced assistant or associate level should also demonstrate successful scholarly publication.
In a letter of application, candidates must address why they are attracted to a position in an education program in a liberal arts college, as well as how they meet the qualifications for the position. Additionally, please submit syllabi for two courses and, if these are not included in your syllabus, two sample assignments that illustrate well the kinds of expectations that you have for student work. Please also submit 3 letters of recommendation. Review of applications will begin on January 10th. Please send materials to firstname.lastname@example.org.
