Gunma Prefectural Women's University, Japan, invites applications for
a tenure-track faculty appointment as Professor, Associate Professor
or Assistant Professor in Communication, effective 1 April 2005, for a
new faculty (Faculty of International Communication) which will be
open on 1 April 2005.

Applicants should have a solid background in intercultural
communication, interpersonal communication or mass communication, and
preferably have experience in teaching English as a foreign language
at the university level. Duties will include teaching undergraduate
in communication studies and English language (a total of five or six
90-minutes classes a week, 30 weeks a year), and BA thesis
supervision. (The faculty will not have yet started a graduate course
on 1 April 2005, but probably will start it at April 2009, and then
teaching graduates may be included.) Collaborative, interdisciplinary
research and teaching are encouraged.

As a member of a Japanese university, applicants are expected to have
an excellent command of Japanese, (if applicants are native speakers
of Japanese, academic experience in an English-speaking country is
preferred) and to contribute to various aspects of the development of
the faculty. Candidates must have an MA or equivalent (preferably a
PhD) in the relevant area, a demonstrated record of research
achievement, and a strong commitment to excellence in undergraduate
and graduate teaching.

The deadline for applications is 21 February 2004.

Please submit to the address below a cover letter, curriculum vitae,
three samples of published work, a summary of research experience and
plan (A4, 2 pages), an essay on your teaching plans and strategies for
English and content (i.e. communication studies) classes and your
ideas regarding curriculum development (A4, 2 pages).

If possible, please email your cover letter and curriculum vitae to

When candidates are short-listed, they will be invited to come to the
University for interview. Unfortunately, we are unable to pay for
travel or accommodation expenses incurred by the interviewee.
