The Language and Literacy Program in the College of Education at Roosevelt University invites applications for a tenure-track, assistant professor position in ESL/bilingual education.

The Language and Literacy Program offers an MA degree in Reading with Reading Specialist, ESL/Bilingual, and Post-Secondary Reading concentrations.

The principles that gave rise to Roosevelt University continue to drive us. Roosevelt University was founded in 1945 on the belief that higher education should be accessible to all academically qualified students.

The College of Education prepares students to serve as teachers, counselors, and leaders in diverse schools, organizations, and communities. We invite you to contribute your talents to our mission.

The review of applications will begin January 6, 2014 and continue until the position is closed. The starting date for this position is August 15, 2014.
