Nara University anticipates an opening for a full-time English professor beginning in April, 2023. This is a tenured position, involving teaching Oral Communication classes to undergraduate students as well as several intensive sessions per year for the Distance Education program. Candidates with research interests in any area of Linguistics, Literature, English Education or a related field will be considered. Although a Ph.D. is preferred, candidates with an MA degree and evidence of solid research will be considered. The ability to handle committee work, student advising and other activities in Japanese is an important requirement for the post (approximately level N2 on the Japanese Language Proficiency Test.) Experience as a full-time contract professor or shokutaku would be an asset as well. Interested teachers who meet the above requirements are encouraged to contact Kathleen Yamane by email for further details at kathleen@daibutsu.nara-u.ac.jp. Application materials will be collected until June 30th with interviews to follow in July.
