Job Description
Assistant Professor, Teacher Education
Gonzaga University’s School of Education in Spokane, WA invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track position as Assistant Professor in the Master's in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages program, in the Department of Teacher Education. The position involves teaching core and elective MA/TESOL and ELL Endorsement courses, supervising Thesis/Projects, advising and mentoring candidates one-on-one, and engaging candidates in meaningful community-based projects. Details about TESOL programs are available online at https://www.gonzaga.edu/school-of-education/graduate/m-a-teaching-english-to-speakers-of-other-languages. The position is intended to develop the department during a period of growth with a new influx of international students and burgeoning interest in the K-12 English Language Learner endorsement.

The MA/TESOL program at Gonzaga integrates theory and practice to build candidates’ knowledge of language and its use, and to explore the interrelationships of cultures, teaching methods and language acquisition. Faculty and students work collaboratively to explore innovations in learning and teaching. Hands-on, experiential projects and other field-based learning opportunities are an integral feature of the programs, preparing candidates to plan, teach, reflect, research and lead in schools and the community. TESOL Programs launched an ELL Endorsement Certificate program in 2023 for in-service K-12 teachers and is therefore particularly interested in candidates with a strong background in K-12 ELL teaching and teacher-training.

While the position has a strong teaching and advising component, the successful candidate will have a clearly articulated research agenda and will be expected to produce high-quality research outputs as part of the regular reappointment, promotion, and tenure process. We are particularly interested in candidates with experience in ethnographic and other qualitative methodologies.

Gonzaga University is located on the banks of the Spokane river approximately 1 mile from downtown Spokane. Spokane provides its residents with a variety of activities from accessible downtown shopping and entertainment to the beautiful landscape of the Inland Northwest. Spokane's longtime motto is “Near Nature Near Perfect” as its residents are minutes away from beautiful lakes, high elevation deserts, and rustic mountains. We encourage applications from women, members of minority groups, protected persons, and others committed to expanding the diversity of the profession.
