For over thirty years now, the Russian Program at Williams has invited a student from the Moscow Pedagogical University to join us for a year as a Teaching Associate. All our modern-language programs have a similar position and it is designed as a cultural and professional experience: young people (typically 20-25 years old) from all over the world come to live, learn, and work together on our campus, travel in the US when they have the time, and improve their English.
Alas, the current consular situation in Moscow has made it impossible for this year’s candidate to obtain a visa, but we would still very much like to have a Teaching Associate as part of our program. Here are the basics of the position:
-candidate must speak Russian at the superior level or higher (we are open to any academic background, from Russian, to physics, to theatre)
-must be able to obtain a visa or already reside in the US and be eligible to work here
-candidate must be able to work in person; Williams requires full vaccination against COVID-19
The position comes with:
-room and board
-office space and full access to Williams’ library, athletic, and IT facilities
-a $7350 stipend
-the ability to take 4 courses of their choice at Williams (either for credit or as auditors)
-20 hours of teaching per week (in-class work, class prep, office hours, etc.)
-organizing and leading extra-curricular events
-serving as a language and cultural resource for both faculty and students
We imagine that this position could be of interest to recent college graduates; MA or PhD students currently completing projects, looking for housing/funding, and able to be away from their institutions; anyone interested in learning more about the liberal arts system; anyone hoping to improve their English
