Dong A University (Busan) Seeking a Full-Time Assistant Professor in the College of General Education (English)

Job Description: Dong A University is looking to appoint a Assistant Professor to the English faculty in the College of General Education for the beginning March 2024. The department is mainly responsible for teaching core, credited courses in English Conversation with an emphasis on Global Culture and Language. The focus of these courses is not only to improve the students’ fluency in speaking English, but also to prepare them to survive everyday life while living or travelling abroad. Professors will be tasked with implementing creative and dynamic teaching methods in order to imbue their lessons with the essentials needed for students to thrive in all English speaking environments.

The students at Dong A University are generally non-English majors and thus come from a variety of English learning backgrounds. Therefore, our classes primarily focus on English communication and expression in the classroom in order to maximize peer to peer and student to teacher interaction. Although there is a textbook and a pre-determined curriculum, Professors will be given lots of leniency in lesson design and methodology and thus will be leaned upon to determine the specific language and philosophical focus of their courses. Speaking is the primary goal of the course, but professors are also encouraged to include short listening, reading and writing exercises in order to complement their lesson plans.

The teaching year is broken up into two, 15-week, semesters. Professors will be required to teach a minimum of 12 credit hours per week (with the potential of some overtime hours during the regular semester) and to create their own midterm and final examinations. There are extra paid opportunities during the semesters and also Winter/Summer breaks. However, these are optional and do not directly impact contract renewal. The contract lasts for 2 years and the renewal of it will be dependent on evaluations at the end of the teaching period. If eligible at the end of the 4 semesters, the professor will be able to renew their contract for 2-year periods thereafter.
