image: University of Montana logoThe Defense Crit­i­cal Language/Culture Pro­gram (DCLCP) at the Mans­field Cen­ter, Uni­ver­si­ty of Mon­tana, invites appli­ca­tions for a full-time posi­tion as a Kore­an-lan­guage instruc­tor. The suc­cess­ful can­di­date will be devel­op­ing cur­ricu­lum and instruct­ing mil­i­tary per­son­nel in inten­sive, ini­tial-acqui­si­tion lan­guage cours­es. These cours­es will be held at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash­ing­ton, via an on-line plat­form. Due to mul­ti­ple train­ing sites, some trav­el may be required.

Appli­cants must have at least a master’s degree (Ph.D. pre­ferred); must be at native flu­en­cy in the tar­get lan­guage and a high pro­fi­cien­cy lev­el in Eng­lish (an oral pro­fi­cien­cy inter­view will be required); must have expe­ri­ence in cur­ricu­lum devel­op­ment for Kore­an mate­ri­als; must have knowl­edge of cur­rent teach­ing method­olo­gies and prac­tices in the class­room; and must have expe­ri­ence instruct­ing Kore­an teach­ing mate­ri­als. Pref­er­ence will be giv­en to those with expe­ri­ence in inten­sive lan­guage instruc­tion, par­tic­u­lar­ly in a mil­i­tary or gov­ern­ment set­ting, and knowl­edge and expe­ri­ence teach­ing Kore­an cul­ture, area stud­ies, and his­tor­i­cal stud­ies.

The DCLCP will devel­op and teach short, inten­sive crit­i­cal lan­guages (Kore­an, Ara­bic, Dari, Pash­to) and strate­gic cul­ture pro­grams to U.S. mil­i­tary and gov­ern­ment employ­ees devel­op­ing var­i­ous lev­els of lan­guage skills and prepar­ing for assign­ments to des­ig­nat­ed host nations. The pro­gram will also devel­op on-line learn­ing mod­ules for remote lan­guage and cul­ture teach­ing in coor­di­na­tion with the Depart­ment of Defense. It will work with oth­er enti­ties at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Mon­tana to devel­op an on-line master’s degree pro­gram for deployed mil­i­tary and oth­er Uni­ver­si­ty of Mon­tana stu­dents.
