The Program in Intensive English (PIE) is looking for applicants to fill multiple Lecturer positions for the 2019-2020 academic year. The number of positions filled will be based on program needs and enrollment projections. The Lecturers’ duties will include teaching up to three classes in the PIE each semester and supporting the PIE through other major assigned responsibilities that include teacher observation, Instructor and Graduate Teaching Assistant training, mentoring, supervision, curriculum development, and facilitating and grading placement exams (assessment).

To improve the English proficiency and academic preparedness of international students
