Kwansei Gakuin University's School of Policy Studies announces two
positions (EFL/EAP) for Associate Lecturers in English (ALEs),
beginning in March 2000. This 3-year contract position is renewable
for a 4th year. The School of Policy Studies is on the Kobe-Sanda
campus, located in the Kansai area of Japan, approximately one hour
from the centers of Kobe and Osaka. Salary and benefits are highly

The ALE coordinates one or two courses per semester which involves:

* developing or improving the course syllabus to meet the needs of the
 students within the overall program goals;
* involving the teachers of the coordinated course in decisions;
* creating new and improving existing material;
* providing those materials to the other teachers in a timely manner

The ALE teaches eight 90-minute classes per week (Tuesday-Friday),
some of which are coordinated by other ALEs. The ALE is involved in
entrance exams, the grading process, and participates in meetings
directly related to the courses and the program. Attendance at other
campus events is rarely required.

As a successful candidate you would have
* native-like competence in English;
* an MA in a relevant discipline such as TEFL/TESL or Applied Linguistics;
* solid teaching experience in university EAP;
* experience coordinating other teachers or working in a coordinated program;
* experience in curriculum and materials development;
* a demonstrated ability to function well as part of a team;
* a commitment to further professional development.

We are working to create a challenging and motivating EAP program for
our students. Ideally, you would have a strong commitment to teaching
and a desire to work as part of a team to constantly develop and
improve our program. Your theoretical grounding in SLA would inform
your decisions in the classroom, curriculum design, and materials
development. You would be able to identify student needs and
implement constructive responses to them. You would be interested in
the goals of the program and be able to see the role of a course
within the overall program goals. Finally, you would approach your job
with energy and enthusiasm. As we seek to diversify our staff, we
encourage women and people of color to apply.

If you meet these criteria and are interested in becoming involved in
an exciting and challenging program, please send only your CV; a cover
letter describing the contributions you could make to our program; and
three letters of recommendation by September 1, 1999 to
