The English Language Centre (ELC) of the University of Saint Joseph (USJ) is currently looking to fill the following vacancy in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities (FAH):

Lecturer/Senior Lecturer/Assistant Professor (Ref. No.: FAH-M37)

Responsibilities will include teaching a range of courses on the English language and English for Academic Purposes at undergraduate and postgraduate levels; contributing to curriculum development and materials design, as well as various other activities related to service as well as research.

The University of Saint Joseph is a major international university in Macao, with students from more than 40 different countries, and staff of 20-plus nationalities. It is also an English-medium university where the English language serves a range of diverse needs as a lingua franca in a multicultural academic community.

The English Language Centre (ELC) intends to become a leading centre in the Asian region for teaching and research on English for Academic Purposes and English-medium instruction (EMI), as well as other areas of English linguistics and sociolinguistics.

We would welcome applications for the post from suitably-qualified candidates who are interested in joining a creative and energetic team of teachers led by Professor Kingsley Bolton, who has recently joined USJ as Professor of English Linguistics and Director of the English Language Centre.

The rank of appointment will depend on the documented experience and qualifications of the successful applicant to this post.

For Lecturer rank, applicants should have a Master’s degree in Applied Linguistics, TESOL, or a closely-related field. They should also have a strong background in teaching English for Academic Purposes, or a cognate area of applied English linguistics.

For Senior Lecturer/Assistant Professor rank, applicants ideally should have completed a PhD thesis in a relevant area of scholarship, and should already have evidence of a research pipeline, as well as publications in international journals.

The post offers exciting possibilities for developing teaching and research expertise in a multicultural international university, with excellent opportunities for mentorship and professional development with particular relevance to EMI higher education in the Asian region and worldwide.

We would particularly welcome applications from freshly-qualified postgraduates, who are seriously embarking upon academic careers, and who wish to develop their teaching and research expertise.
