Thank you to our friends at the American Association of Teachers of Japanese for this Job Posting.

Application Deadline: February 5, 2024

The Department of Asian Languages and Literatures at Carleton College invites applications for a full-time visiting assistant professor in Japanese, to begin September 1, 2024. This is a one year appointment.

We seek candidates who can teach Japanese-language courses at all levels, and are passionate about teaching in a liberal arts setting. The position will involve teaching in both the Japanese language sequence as well as teaching courses about Japanese culture in English. Native or near-native fluency in both Japanese and English is required.

The candidate will have a Ph.D. completed or substantially completed in Japanese Studies at the time of application. Field of specialization is open, but the successful candidate will bring expertise that will expand interdisciplinary offerings at the college and attract students from outside Japanese Studies. The successful candidate will also demonstrate a willingness to participate actively in the life of the department and the Asian Studies program, and to contribute to extra-curricular activities. Teaching load is five courses per year. The Carleton calendar includes three 10-week terms.

We are particularly interested in candidates committed to teaching a diverse student body.

Carleton is committed to developing its faculty to better reflect the diversity of our student body and American society. Women and members of underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply. Carleton College does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, ethnicity, religion, sex, national origin, marital status, veteran status, actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, status with regard to public assistance, disability, or age in providing employment or access to its educational facilities and activities.

Application Process: To apply, please visit the Carleton College web site at go.carleton.edu/carletonjobs to complete the online application by submitting a letter of application; curriculum vitae; a teaching statement addressing the candidate’s teaching experience and interests; names and contact information of three references. Upon receipt of the candidate’s online application, letter writers will be contacted via email with instructions on letter submission. The deadline for receipt of applications is February 5, 2024. Review of complete applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.

Carleton is a highly selective liberal arts college with a student body of approximately 2,000. Located in the thriving two-college town of Northfield, Minnesota, it is forty-five miles from the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, in easy reach of a vibrant metropolitan area that is home to three million people and rich cultural resources.
