   The School of Modern Languages in the Ivan Allen College at the Georgia Institute of Technology announces an opening for a tenure-track appointment as Assistant Professor of Chinese, to begin August 2005. The appointment is contingent upon final budget approval. We seek candidates with a PhD in Chinese language, literature, or cultural studies, with native or near-native Chinese fluency, with outstanding scholarly potential and excellent teaching skills, and with strong interest in developing a summer abroad program in Chinese. Experience with the application of technology to language learning plus a strong interest in cross-cultural education and content-based or applied-language learning are highly desired; experience in creating computer-assisted instructional materials is a plus.

   The School of Modern Languages emphasizes interactive learning and an interdisciplinary approach to language, literature, and intercultural studies. We offer two joint majors: in International Affairs and Modern Languages and in Global Economics and Modern Languages. The new position in Chinese will enable us to add Chinese to the two joint major tracks. Opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration with faculty in the other language groups in Modern Languages as well as faculty from other Schools in the Ivan Allen College are strongly encouraged.
