The 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 coördination 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.
