The Department of Global Studies (DGS) at Pusan National University (PNU) is recruiting qualified candidates for at least 1 non-tenure track, renewable position. The start date is September 1, 2017.
DGS offers a challenging, interdisciplinary liberal arts style curriculum taught entirely in English and almost exclusively by native speakers. We seek professional, dynamic, collaborative teachers that will bring social science and/or humanities insights, methods, and content into our foundational English curriculum. Applicants with experience integrating multimedia approaches and research into their teaching of logic, quantitative and/or qualitative methods, and/or rhetoric in a multi-lingual classroom environment are particularly encouraged to apply.
At least 4 years of teaching and/or research experience is required. A master’s degree (in any field) is required and valued at 2 years of research experience. A PhD degree (in any field) is preferred along with TESOL, CELTA or other English certifications.
Korean citizens are not eligible to apply.
