Virtual Max Kade Visiting Professor of German at Michigan State University
The German Program at Michigan State University invites applications for the position of Virtual Max Kade Visiting Professor of German
Candidates must have a Ph.D. with specialization in any area of German Studies, with preference given to those with experience teaching German as a Foreign Language. Candidates must be employed full time at a German university or a university in a German-speaking country, with significant relevant publications in German culture, literature or linguistics, teaching experience, and English language skills.
Given the many uncertainties created by COVID19 including potential visa delays and travel restrictions, teaching will be remote (a combination of asynchronous and synchronous instruction).
The successful applicant will be expected to teach an undergraduate German language and culture course for the German Program in the Department of Linguistics and Germanic, Slavic, Asian and African Languages during the Spring semester (2021). In addition, she or he will participate remotely in the program’s Graduate Colloquium on a specialized topic and will offer a public lecture for the wider University community. Our semester runs from early January through the first week of May.
Please send a letter of interest and CV to Professor Karin Wurst, Department of LGSAAL (email@example.com).
Deadline: September 15, 2020
