Penn State Abington invites applications for part-time instructor positions (teaching 3 to 9 credits per semester) to teach its Academic Integration Courses (AIC), which are designed to provide multilingual students (e.g. international students or recent immigrants) with ESL-specialized instruction. AIC are a form of academic support for multilingual students during their transition to the new academic and cultural environment in college. AIC instructors teach various courses including AIC sections of Rhetoric and Composition, Developmental Reading, Developmental Listening, Intercultural Communication, and Effective Speech. Positions will start in January 2019 and teaching load will vary each semester depending on the program’s needs. Located roughly 15 miles north of vibrant and diverse Philadelphia, Abington College is a minority-majority institution serving a racially and ethnically diverse student body of nearly 4,000 undergraduates, including a significant proportion of first-generation, nontraditional, international, and multilingual students. Abington College offers 19 baccalaureate degrees on our campus, and the first two years of more than 160 Penn State majors that can be completed at other campuses. Applications will be accepted until November 30. To apply, submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of teaching philosophy, and names and contact information of three references who will write letters of support. Application material must be submitted on-line. Employment with the University will require successful completion of background check(s) in accordance with University policies. Penn State is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer, and is committed to providing employment opportunities to all qualified applicants without regard to race, color, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability or protected veteran status.
