Posting Description

The University. CU Denver is the premier research university in Colorado, serving more than 30,000 undergraduate, graduate and health professions students in Denver, Aurora and online and awarding nearly 4,000 degrees each year. The renowned researchers and award-winning faculty of CU Denver offer more than 100 degree programs through 13 colleges and schools. In 2010 the University was awarded approximately $400 million in research grants and contracts. The new Anschutz Medical Campus includes over 5 million square feet of research, educational and clinical space on 227 acres. The Downtown Campus is located in one of America’s most vibrant urban centers, just steps from the Denver Center for Performing Arts, the LoDo District and the state capitol. This location in downtown Denver attracts a diverse population and the diversity is enriched by our commitment to a philosophy of inclusion, embedded in all aspects of campus life from its community members, curriculum, research, and community service allowing for the creation of a learning environment that welcomes, embraces, sustains and celebrates the unique and shared experiences of faculty, staff and students.

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences currently operates a joint education program, International College Beijing, with China Agricultural University. The Department of Modern Languages seeks to strengthen our ties with this program and prepare students for success in Beijing.

The Department. The Department of Modern Languages consists of a collegial, multi-language faculty with exceptional strengths in teaching, research and program development. We currently offer a minor in Chinese Studies, and we seek to grow that program. We also offer a B.A. and M.A. in Spanish, a B.A. in French, as well as programs and courses in Arabic, German and Latin.

The Position. The Department of Modern Languages seeks an Assistant Professor of Mandarin Chinese. Specialization open. We are interested in growing our Chinese language, literature and culture program, which currently consists of first- and second-year Chinese language and culture courses. The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. in hand at the time of appointment. Additionally, the successful candidate will be able to demonstrate potential for scholarly achievement and excellence in teaching. The workload for the position is 40% research, 40% teaching (4 courses per AY), and 20% service, though a differentiated workload is a possibility consistent with college policies. We particularly encourage candidates who can enhance the department’s commitment to diversity and multiculturalism through research, teaching, and outreach.

Applications are accepted electronically ONLY at www.jobsatcu.com, refer to job posting F02982.
