We welcome applications from candidates working on any aspect of Latin American culture. However, due to existing expertise within the department of Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies, preference may be given to applicants who are not Southern Cone specialists.

You must have a PhD in a relevant field, submitted or very near completion, and demonstrable teaching experience in Latin American cultural studies at university level. You must be fluent in Spanish, as some involvement in the language teaching activities of the department will be non-negotiable. Experience of assessing undergraduate work in Spanish as a foreign language, including translation, and experience of developing online teaching materials is highly desirable. You must have excellent interpersonal skills and be able to empathize with students.
