Lecturer in Chinese Studies, Victoria University of Wellington

The School of Languages and Cultures at Victoria University of Wellington invites applications for the position of Lecturer in Chinese Studies.

The successful candidate will be a native-speaker or near native-speaker of Chinese with experience in teaching Chinese language, literature and culture courses at the tertiary level, preferably to speakers of English.

A programme of research is an integral part of the role and the appointee will be expected to have a strong research record and to provide MA and PhD thesis supervision. A PhD in Chinese (or relevant discipline) is essential.

The successful candidate will be a productive and collegial member of a team of experienced researchers and teachers, and will also be expected to contribute to the administration of the School. The areas of teaching competence and the research specialisations of the appointee must complement and reinforce the existing strengths of the Chinese Programme, as well as enhancing the broader research strategies of the University.

While scholars whose interests lie in any field of Chinese Studies are encouraged to apply, the University would be particularly interested to receive applications from candidates with research interests in contemporary Chinese literature and culture. This position is available from 1 July 2012.

Closing date: Friday 13 January 2012
