Jobs: Korean; English & Applied Linguistics: Rank Open, Batiq, LLC

Editor for this issue: Bethany Townsend <bethanylinguistlist.org>

The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards.

Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

time lines and deliverables and will work closely with other team members.
We encourage smart, energetic people to apply for the position, even if
your background doesn't meet all of the qualifications below.

Curriculum developers will ultimately be responsible for ensuring that we

- Experience in curriculum writing and materials writing
- Proven track record of showing creativity in teaching
- Strong computer skills (including web-based activities and exercises)
- Ability to communicate with both curriculum and technical team members
- Ability to adapt to fast paced schedule and changes
- Excellent organizational skills and attention to detail

Other key qualifications include understanding of the unique needs of
Korean ESL adolescent and adult learners, prior curriculum development
experience, and very strong writing skills.

We are a fully funded start-up faced with a very large potential market and
a unique opportunity.
