Harvey Watson Department of French and Francophone Studies invites applicants for a full-time tenure track position in the field of pre-1900 literature and culture beginning fall 2023. The successful candidate’s research and teaching should situate French and Francophone culture in a transnational framework and address colonization.

Ideal candidates will be interested in working in a collaborative environment in a small liberal arts college setting. Applicants must have native or near native command of French (this includes all its varieties: European, Caribbean, North American, African, etc.) and should have completed all Ph.D. requirements by August 2023. Candidates must show evidence and/or promise of excellence in teaching students from diverse backgrounds and have an active research agenda. We are seeking outstanding teachers with demonstrated experience in teaching French language at all levels in an immersive environment. The successful candidate will be expected to teach elementary and intermediate language courses, as well as upper-level content-oriented courses, and contribute regularly to the college-wide curriculum, including the first-year seminar program and winter term curriculum. Ability to teach in English and interest in cross-departmental collaboration in Middlebury’s Black Studies Program is also highly desirable.
