|Institution Type:||College / University|
The School of Culture, History and Language is seeking a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer (Level B/C) with strong teaching and research interests in Mainland Southeast Asia, in particular, Thailand and Burma/Myanmar, for a continuing position to commence in January 2013.
ANU College of Asia and the Pacific leads intellectual engagement with the Asia-Pacific region through research, teaching and contributions to public debate, and seeks to set the international standard for scholarship concerning the region. Mainland Southeast Asia is a priority region for teaching and research in the College's School of Culture, History and Language. In addition to teaching a full undergraduate program in Thai language studies, the School also offers an extensive range of courses on the history, culture, society and politics of Mainland Southeast Asia.
The School is seeking a suitably qualified person to coordinate and teach established courses on this region, in particular, Thailand and Burma/Myanmar. The successful candidate will take over existing teaching duties and will have the opportunity to develop a personal teaching profile.
Applicants should have a PhD in history, anthropology or a related discipline, and a demonstrated ability to teach courses on Thailand, Burma and other Mainland Southeast Asian societies to undergraduate students from a variety of cultural backgrounds. Research competence in either Thai or Burmese language (or another regional language) is necessary, and the candidate should have a record of scholarly publication appropriate to his/her career stage. Both the School and the College provide significant financial support for research.
As part of our drive to rectify historical gender imbalances in our program, we encourage highly qualified female applicants to apply.
