Short Appointment in Italian Studies

Another teaching job in Italian. This language is growing! I love to see where Italian is studied.

What caught my attention, though, is the little boilerplate stuff about Laurentian University. It has "a policy of passive English/French bilingualism as a condition of tenure." Read on for more information.

Here's the job ad:

The Department of Modern Languages and Literatures at Laurentian University invites applications for a 6 month limited-term appointment in Italian Studies commencing January 1, 2010. The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. or be ABD in Italian Studies, a demonstrated commitment to teaching and potential for research as well as native or near-native fluency in Italian. Duties include teaching Italian literature and culture courses at all levels in a four-year B.A. program.

Laurentian University is a bilingual institution and an equal opportunity employer. It has a policy of passive English/French bilingualism as a condition of tenure. Laurentian University is committed to equity in employment and encourages
applications from all qualified applicants, including women, aboriginal peoples, members of visible minorities and persons with disabilities.
