Assistant in Portuguese

The Department of Luso-Hispanic Studies at Middlebury College is looking for a Teaching Assistant in Portuguese for the academic year 2021-2022. This is a multi-faceted position that combines organizational and extra-curricular responsibilities with the opportunity to undertake coursework at Middlebury College. The ideal candidate would be an MA or equivalent, with native or near-native fluency in Portuguese, fluency in English, and interest in language instruction. In addition to a standard honorarium, the successful candidate will receive full tuition for one course in each semester (Fall and Spring), full room and board for the academic year, student health and dental insurance (subject to the regular deductibles), and cost of airfare to and from Middlebury College.

Responsibilities: The Portuguese T.A. will live in the Portuguese-language house with students who have made a commitment to speak only Portuguese and eat in the student dining halls and at the Portuguese -language table. They will encourage the use of Portuguese by providing a linguistic model and by organizing cultural and recreational activities that will promote the Portuguese language and Lusophone cultures. These activities could include—but are not limited to—movie and video showings, “cafezinhos,” guest lectures, theme dinners, parties, etc.

The Portuguese T.A. will assist the faculty of the Portuguese program by leading conversation sections for its intermediate/advanced course. Additionally, the T.A. might correct workbooks/quizzes, conduct exams, or substitute classes during the Fall and Spring semesters for faculty away at conferences.

The Portuguese T.A. should plan to be available on campus two weeks before classes start through the end of the examination period, and we would hope they would stay for the Commencement ceremonies at the end of May. Candidates should electronically submit dossiers (cover letter and curriculum vitae) in English via Interfolio (https://apply.interfolio.com/85495). The review process will begin on April 20, 2021 and will continue until the position is filled. Offers of employment are contingent on completion of a background check.
