Lecturer, Structured Liberal Education

Classified As seen in JobElephant
Lecturer, Structured Liberal Education, Stanford University

Stanford University seeks one full-time Lecturer for the program in Structured Liberal Education (SLE) within Residential Programs (ResPro) in the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education (VPUE). This is a one year fixed term appointment beginning September 1, 2019 - August 31, 2020, with the possibility of renewal for up to three additional years.

SLE is a residence-based humanities program that encourages students to live a life of ideas in an atmosphere that emphasizes critical thinking and interpretation. Focusing on important works of philosophy, religion, literature, painting, and film drawn largely, but not exclusively, from the Western tradition, the SLE curriculum places particular emphasis on artists and intellectuals who brought new ways of thinking and new ways of creating into the world, often overthrowing prior traditions in the process. Students in the program draw connections between issues raised in the course and contemporary concerns about social justice, inequality, and identity politics - these connections and the resulting discussions about the legacy of the Western tradition, constitute a core aspect of the course and of the residential learning experience.

Instruction includes the following: three lectures each week, usually by Stanford faculty members; two weekly seminar meetings; ad hoc meetings between first year students and assigned upperclassmen who serve as their writing tutors; a weekly film or special event; and a considerable amount of informal interaction in the SLE dormitory environment.

The SLE Lecturer is a full-time position that involves leading the two weekly seminars (with the same group of about fifteen students in both), attending all of the lectures, commenting on up to three papers each term (both in writing and in one-to-one meetings with the students) , and assuming some administrative tasks. They are also expected to have general participation in the life of the program and the residence in which the program is embedded (although SLE Lecturers do not live in the residence, they are fully participating members of the residential experience). A SLE Lecturer may be called upon to deliver at least one lecture to the class. They work closely as a team with the Director of the Program (a Stanford faculty member), the upper-class tutors assigned to their seminars, and partly with participating Stanford faculty.

Qualifications
Candidates should have a Ph.D. (filed no later than June 30, 2019), a strong record of humanities scholarship and evidence of teaching excellence.
