UNIVERSITY OF SAN FRANCISCO • Masters in Asia Pacific Studies Program
POSTING DATE: March 20, 2019
POSITION: Instructor (part-time) for a 4-unit graduate course on
“Cultures of the Asia Pacific: Religion and Philosophy” (APS 605)
DATES: 22 August to 17 December, 2019
QUALIFICATIONS:Ph.D. or ABD (Ph.D. preferred) andadvanced university-level teaching experience
The Master of Arts in Asia Pacific Studies (MAPS), a unique interdisciplinary program at the University of San Francisco, seeks an adjunct instructor for Fall 2019. The position entails teaching a 4-unit seminar course that meets one evening a week (Wednesdays, 6:30-9:30 pm) to 12-15 graduate students. Compensation is around $7,600 pending budgetary approval.
This seminar will involve rich discussions, engaging readings, and compelling case studies about three of the Asia's most significant worldviews: Confucianism, Buddhism, and shamanic traditions. From ancient-yet-globally modern philosophical and religious concepts that still have clout in China, Korea, and Singapore, to religious practices and institutions that have shaped the cultural sensibilities and scholarly humanistic traditions of the Asia-Pacific, this seminar will give students the kind of cultural literacy respected by many people in the Asia Pacific. Unique to the seminar is an investigation about the philosophical distinction between “East” and “West".
Qualified candidates will be interviewed and requested to teach a 40-minute section of one of our seminars during the month of April. Please send a cover letter, a CV, the name of one recommender we can contact, and any student evaluations you might have to email@example.com. We are looking for an experienced university-level instructor and welcome applications from women, ethnic minorities, and others.
