CALL FOR FACULTY
The Institute for the International Education of Students (IES Abroad) invites scholars of modern China to teach at the IES Abroad Beijing Center in Fall 2014.
The Institute for the International Education of Students, with nearly 60 years of history, is a leading U.S. study-abroad program for American university students. The Beijing Center is located at the Beijing Foreign Studies University and has been in operation since 1990. Since 1990, over 2,500 American university students have studied at the Beijing Center.
The Contemporary Issues Program (CIP) is designed for undergraduates with varying levels of Chinese language proficiency. The program is taught using a “modular” schedule in which students choose a single course for a 3.5-week module. Instructors teach 15-16 classes over a 3.5-week period. Each class meets in the morning for 2.5 hours. This schedule is ideal for researchers or other academics with commitments that prevent them from committing to teaching a course for an entire 16-week semester.
Currently, we seek qualified instructors in the following areas:
Government and Politics in China
Modern Chinese Economy
International Relations of China
Environmental Policy and Environmental Issues in China
Urbanization and Urban Society in China
Youth Culture in China
Modern Chinese Literature/Gender & Sexuality in Modern Chinese Literature
Compensation will be a stipend commensurate with the scholar’s academic status and teaching experience. In addition, for instructors teaching in the Contemporary Issues Program (CIP) and who are outside of Beijing, the Beijing Center will provide round-trip transportation to Beijing and housing during the term of instruction.
Qualifications and Application Submission
Candidates with a doctorate degree, advanced doctoral candidates, or those with a graduate degree and substantial experience in the field and prior teaching experience will be considered. Applicants should send a C.V. and the names and contact information for two academic references who can address the applicant’s teaching experience. A brief description of teaching methods the instructor has found to be successful with advanced undergraduate students is also helpful.
All application materials should be sent to Jeremiah Jenne, Director of the IES Abroad Beijing Center, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
