The English Language Centre (ELC) of School of General Education (SGE) is a large and well-established department offering a range of courses and support services to students throughout their undergraduate studies. Students enrolled in UIC degree programmes are taught in English, so the ELC is responsible for ensuring that they are prepared for both the language and academic requirements of courses that use English as a medium of instruction. Now the ELC invites applications for appointment as lecturers in February 2023.
We are seeking to appoint qualified and experienced English-speaking lecturers who can teach all four skills (reading, writing, speaking and listening) to our undergraduate students. Chinese candidates are also welcome to apply. Teaching materials are provided, although we are always working to improve our courses and there are opportunities for interested staff to undertake content development. Experience in teaching English for academic purposes would be an advantage.
Candidates should hold a minimum of a Master's degree with at least two years of English language teaching experience at university level and a TEFL/TESOL certificate. The appointee should have a strong sense of commitment and professionalism, excellent teamwork skills, and be able to build good rapport with students and colleagues.
Benefits and Appointment Terms
A competitive salary commensurate with qualifications and experience will be offered together with social insurance and housing allowance. Appointments are normally made on a 2-year basis, with the possibility of renewal dependent on successful performance review. The College reserves the right not to fill these positions, or to extend the search until suitable candidates are identified or to make an appointment by invitation.
All application materials should be submitted in English.
