Deadline: Open Until Filled
Mercyhurst University seeks a post-doctoral teaching fellow to teach two courses online and engage with students in the Russian Studies program. The two courses include one section of Intro to Russian I and one section of Intermediate Russian I, both for the Fall 2020 semester. Contingent on final funding, the grant provides a salary of $5000 per course, plus a stipend for course preparation during the summer. In addition, the instructor will get training in online instruction, the support of a mentor in online instruction, and the use of a laptop. Because the courses will be online, no relocation will be necessary. Training for online instruction begins upon hiring. Mercyhurst fall semester runs from 8/17/2020-12/4/2020.
Interested candidates should send a current CV, cover letter, and at least one letter of recommendation that addresses teaching experience to firstname.lastname@example.org. Candidates with PhD in hand are preferred. Because we are offering training, prior experience in online instruction is desirable but not required. Finalists must communicate well and successfully complete an interview process, be authorized to be employed in the United States, and have positive references. We aim to fill the position quickly and will begin reviewing applications immediately. Candidates can direct questions about the position to Katie Duda, Director of the Russian Studies program at Mercyhurst University, email@example.com
