Faculty in MAT Graduate program 
The Bard College Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) Program is now accepting applications for a faculty position in English literature, teaching at the common campus of the Bard College Master of Arts in Teaching Program and the Paramount Bard Academy (PBA), a charter school serving grades 6-12, in Delano, California. This is a full-time appointment and preference will be given to literature scholars with a specialty in areas that connect to the California State curriculum standards. The MAT Program is committed to rigorous graduate training in biology, English, history, and mathematics; intense involvement in high school/middle school classrooms; partnerships for educational change with participant schools; and a re-conceptualized education curriculum. Courses in education and the student’s discipline are closely integrated in the MAT curriculum with the practical challenges of classroom instruction in a yearlong residency program at PBA and other local schools. In addition, the new PBA campus offers a unique opportunity for graduate and public school faculty and students to contribute to creating a model educational environment, linking theory and practice in the context of the daily operations of the Paramount Bard Academy. For this reason, the MAT program requires a high degree of faculty collaboration, and we seek full-time and part-time faculty who share our commitments. The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. and a commitment to preparing high-quality teachers. Teaching begins in June 2011. Applications will be accepted immediately and hiring will be carried out on a rolling basis.
To apply, please send a letter of interest, current CV, statement of teaching philosophy, and names and contact information of three references by email only to firstname.lastname@example.org Please contact Bard’s MAT Program with any questions: email@example.com or 845-758-7145. Bard College is an equal opportunity employer and welcomes applications from individuals who contribute to its diversity. AA/EOE [R]
