 Teaching Assistantships in Japanese
 Available at the University of Durham, Durham, United Kingdom
An unofficial announcement from the Linguistics and East Asian Studies Depts.

Position #1: The U. of Durham is presently seeking to fill an instructorship
in business Japanese; the initial appointment is 3 years. The position
involves 12 contact hours per week for 22 weeks/ year (early Oct. through late
June, with 2 one-month vacations per years at Christmas and mid-March). The
position also involves helping to develop a new upper level Japanese language
curriculum working with Dr. W.McClure (Cornell University, 1994). Approximate
salary for this position is (converted to US$) 20,000--23,000. See below for
more details.
Position #2: The U. of Durham also invites candidates for a Teaching Assistant
in teaching Japanese as a foreign language (at all levels). The official
appointment is yearly, but PhD candidates (see paragraphs below) making
satisfactory progress toward a degree will be re-appointed. The position
involves 9 contact hours a week for 22 weeks, from early Oct. through mid-May
with 2 one-month vacations. The stipend converted to US$ is c. 6,000 /year.
 This second position is perceived as mainly a "graduate student TAship
leading to a PhD". No examinations of students or departmental administration
are involved. (Greater experience in foreign language teaching is expected
in position #1 than in #2.)

 For both positions, the University hopes to attract candidates who
wish to simultaneously undertake a 4-5 year PhD programme at Durham, for
example in theoretical or applied linguistics (Prof. Joseph Emonds, depart-
mental chair). Thus, the teaching may be in one department and the graduate
degree in another. The Linguistics Department will pay the fees (c. US$2,500
year in the 4-5 year programme) of a suitably enrolled Instructor (position
 #1) or Teaching Assistant (position #2) who is making satisfactory progress
toward a PhD in Linguistics. Arrangements for a jointly supervised degree
in Linguistics and East Asian Studies may also be possible.
 Candidates hired for either position making satisfactory progress
toward a degree will receive assurances of reappointment through the 4-5
year programme. Detailed information on the Linguistics Department staff,
areas of research focus, and programmes can be obtained through emailing to:
 The cost of living in Durham is less than in the US or Japan; a
modest 2 bedroom apartment near the university is US$ 400--500/month. Even
less expensive arrangements can be made through the university's "colleges",
and successful candidates will be aided in finding appropriate accomodation.
For either position #1 or #2, candidates must be a) native speakers of
Japanese, b)document experience in teaching a foreign language, preferably
Japanese but experience teaching other languages, esp. for #2, may suffice.
 Send a curriculum vitae including work experience and a letter of
application to Dr. W. McClure, Dept. of East Asian Studies, University of
Durham, Durham, United Kingdom DH1 3TH. (Air Mail!) Dr. McClure can also
be reached at fax number -4491-374-3242, and at
The closing date for receipt of the initial letter and CV is March 4, for
either position.
