The Department of Asian Studies seeks to make a full-time appointment in

and program affairs; evidence of commitment to teaching; and promise of
educational leadership. Experience in program coordination and
computer-assisted instruction will be assets. The successful candidate will

promotion to the rank of Professor of Teaching in the fifth or subsequent
years in rank.
The application dossier should include: application letter, curriculum
vitae, statement of teaching philosophy, complete transcripts of one's
