    The Department of Languages, Cultures and Linguistics at Bucknell University invites applications for a long-term, full-time, non-tenure-track lectureship position in Russian Studies to begin August 1, 2022, with a three-year initial appointment. The teaching load is 3/3, which is expected to include Russian language at all levels, a first-year writing-intensive seminar, and a general course on Russian culture in the candidate’s area of specialization, the latter two taught in English. Possibility for on-going renewal will be contingent on demonstrated teaching effectiveness and the continuing needs of the Russian Studies Program. The successful candidate should possess native or near-native fluency in Russian and exhibit a demonstrated interest in inclusive pedagogies and developing new courses in areas such as environmental, LBGTQ, or race and ethnicity studies (or in other areas of emerging interest in Russian Studies). Candidates are expected to have a Ph.D. or be ABD in the area of Russian language and culture.

    Application materials include a CV, a cover letter that addresses your experience and potential as a teacher, and three letters of recommendation. Applications will only be accepted online through Bucknell’s career site (<;). The search committee will begin to screen applications on March 1, 2022, and will continue to do so until the position is filled.
