Youngstown State University seeks applications from candidates interested in pursuing an MA in English while teaching introductory (and possibly intermediate) courses in Hebrew language.

The selected candidate will receive a stipend and scholarship.

Scholarship and Funding:

The selected candidate will receive the Graduate College Premiere Scholarship, which covers instructional fees and the out-of-state surcharge.

The candidate will teach one Hebrew language course per semester, pending enrollment, for which they will receive the standard Teaching Assistant stipend. (If Hebrew courses do not enroll, the candidate may receive an alternate teaching or research assignment.)

To Apply:

Interested candidates should apply to the Department of English through the YSU College of Graduate Studies and indicate in their personal statement a wish to be considered for the Hebrew-teaching assistantship. A portion of that statement should explain the candidate’s qualifications to teach Hebrew language courses at the college level and to successfully complete an MA in English. In addition, one of the applicant’s reference letters should address their qualifications to teach Hebrew.

Candidates must have maintained a 3.00 minimum average (on a 4-point scale; or equivalent) in their undergraduate studies. We are particularly interested in applicants who will focus on language instruction in their graduate work at YSU.

The College of Graduate Studies supports the April 15th Resolution Regarding Graduate Scholars, Fellows, Trainees and Assistants of the Council of Graduate Schools.
