The Department of Slavic Languages & Literatures seeks applications for a preceptor in Czech language. The appointment is expected to begin on July 1, 2013 with teaching beginning in Fall 2013. The preceptor will be responsible for courses in beginning and intermediate Czech (4 courses per academic year) and additional tutorials in advanced Czech as needed. The preceptor will work with the Director of the Slavic Language Program to develop courses in Czech language and assist with expanding the Czech language program. It is highly desirable that the preceptor be willing to participate in Harvard’s eight-week summer study abroad program in Prague, Czech Republic, depending on program needs. The position is for one year, renewable on a yearly basis for up to eight years, contingent upon performance, enrollments, and curricular need. Interviews will be held at AATSEEL in January.
