UCLA has recently approved the introduction of ASL courses into its undergraduate curriculum. The UCLA Department of Linguistics invites applications for a two-year half time lecturer position in American Sign Language (ASL) starting Fall 2012. This is a teaching position that will involve designing and teaching a one year (three quarter) sequence of ASL instruction (one course per quarter). The salary for the position will range between $27,000-$30,000, and position comes with full UCLA benefits. The position requires native or near- native ASL skills and a strong background in ASL teaching.
The individual appointed may also have the possibility of teaching an 8 week intensive summer course in ASL, if there is sufficient enrollment for the course. This 8 week course will carry a salary in the range of $8,000-$9,000.
