The University of Michigan’s English Language Institute (ELI), seeks an energetic, dynamic faculty administrator to join the ELI’s leadership team. This is a primarily in-person position with the option of one day of remote work per week. Regular teaching is integral to the role. The effort associated with the full-time staff position will decrease to allow for the instructional effort in this Adjunct Lecturer appointment. The proportion of administrative and teaching effort during the spring and summer half terms will be determined in consultation with the ELI director, based on the selected individual’s preference and programmatic needs. For more information about the ELI, please visit our website.
The mission of the University of Michigan is to serve the people of Michigan and the world through preeminence in creating, communicating, preserving and applying knowledge, art, and academic values, and in developing leaders and citizens who will challenge the present and enrich the future.
Teaching is integral to this role, so the ELI associate director regularly receives a 20% instructional appointment in the fall and winter terms. A 20% appointment in the ELI typically involves teaching one (1) of ELI’s 1-credit English for Academic Purposes mini-courses. In addition to teaching duties, ELI instructors participate in pre- and in-term student advising, curricular development, outreach, and other service to the department. All lecturers are expected to attend departmental meetings, hold office hours, and handle routine matters related to instruction.
