Date: Wed, 31 Jul 1996 15:17:19 +0900
From: Kirk Masden <masdenjob.eecs.kumamoto-u.ac.jp>
Subject: Job: Kumamoto Gakuen University
 DESCRIPTION OF POSITION

Rank: assitant professor (koshi; tenure track)
Subject: English
Duties:

(1) teaching English, with an emphasis on oral communicative
 skills, to undergraduate students;
(2) as a full-time, tenure-track faculty member, the successful
 applicant will be expected to attend faculty meetings,
 serve on committees, and do other work that is normally
 shared by faculty members at Japanese universities.

Starting date: April 1, 1997

Salary:
Salary will be determined in accord with the age, education, and
professional experience of the successful applicant. A 36 year old
person with eight years of teaching experience and a Ph.D. in hand,
for example, could expect to earn over 9 million yen per year (over
80,000 U.S. dollars per year at current exchange rates; net income
would be less due to Japanese taxes and other deductions) but the
income of a person with lesser qualifications would be proportionately
smaller. Salaries are only determined by standardized methods of
calculation and are NOT negotiable.

Terms of employment:
Kumamoto Gakuen University does not distinguish between Japanese and
non-Japanese faculty. Accordingly, all full-time faculty members
begin their employment with the Japanese equivalent of tenure. The
successful applicant will begin as a koshi but will have the same
opportunities for advancement as other faculty members.

Position includes:

Travel allowance: 312,000 yen per year
Moving allowance: negotiable
Airfare: One-way travel to Japan for successful
 applicant and dependents
Research allowance: 350,000 yen per year for purchase
 of books and equipment
Computer budget: up to 1,000,000 yen for purchase of
 computer, equipment, and software


 QUALIFICATIONS

Minimum university degree required: MA
University degree preferred: Ph.D.

Subject specialization:
TESL degrees are preferred but persons with degrees in
related fields may also apply.

English skills:
The successful applicant must be a native speaker of English or
possess an equivalent level of skill in both spoken and written
English.

Japanese skills:
An intermediate level of proficiency in both written and spoken
Japanese is required; fluency is highly desirable.


 HOW TO APPLY

Inquires may be made by e-mail or telephone. Applications must arrive
via conventional mail by October 31, 1996. The following matierals
are required:

(1) CV/Resume;
(2) University and graduate school transcripts (if not
 included in the transcripts, evidence of completion of
 degrees should also be submitted);
(3) Essay describing experience studying and using
 the Japanese language;
(4) Copies of three academic papers;
(5) Report from physician on current state of health.
