Job Posting (11 Month Contract)

Position: Instructor, Intensive English Program (IEP) at Southern
Illinois University Carbondale in Niigata (SIUC-N)

Term: 11 months from June 4, 2002 to May 10, 2003, renewable upon
agreement by both parties. 

Duties: Teaching (20 hours per week of classes and 5 office hours per
week); participating in school/dorm events; supervising club activities;
advising students; participating in recruitment activities, as well as
school promotional events and programs; attending faculty meetings

Qualifications: Successful candidates will have a Master's in ESL or
Applied Linguistics and experience teaching in an ESL program in an
academic setting. The environment in the IEP features aspects of both
an American university and a Japanese business; therefore, cooperation
is key. Candidates must also be flexible regarding participation in
school events and activities. Some familiarity with Japanese styles of
teaching and learning is helpful.

Working Hours: While teachers are generally at school throughout the
business day, they enjoy academic freedom in their working hours.
Provided that teachers are able to keep up with their teaching and
other work, and they are willing to help with school functions as
needed, there are no set rules about the hours they are expected to be
at school.

Annual Salary: 3.3 million Yen ($27,500 at the exchange rate of $1.00 =
120 Yen)

Monthly deductions are made for income tax, health insurance, pension,
housing maintenance fee, and unemployment insurance, totaling about
50,000 Yen per month.

Housing Benefits: Free housing and telephone line (not free phone
calls) are provided for all IEP faculty members. (Note: In order to
allow for reconciliation of the bill prior to the employee's
departure, if the contract is not renewed, the phone line is cut off
on the 15th of the month prior to the employee's departure.)

Paid Vacation: 10 days, including sick leave.

Holidays: Most weekends, Japanese National Holidays, and holidays
designated by the Pacific School Entity. (Upon application, the school
calendar will be available for your review.)

Travel Allowance: a 150,000 Yen (approximately valued at $1,250) travel
allowance will be provided for travel to and from Japan. It is
reimbursed to the employee on the first paycheck. If the employee leaves
before the end of the contract period, the travel allowance must be
reimbursed to the employer and may be deducted from the final paycheck.

Application Deadline: Jan. 31, 2002 (Interviews will be held in Feb.
2002. The hiring decision will be made and the contract will be signed
by early Feb. 2002.)

Applications may made via email or fax. Please send a resume and cover
letter to the attention of Cyndi Peterson, Chairperson of the IEP Hiring
