Job Details

EAP instructors are responsible for the design and implementation of content-based, first-year seminars with a semester-long focus on a theme of the instructor's choosing. These advanced courses aim to develop integrated skills (reading, writing, speaking, listening) with an emphasis on academic speaking and listening. Lecturers teach six sections in a two-semester course sequence (3 sections/semester). You may read more about the program curriculum on our website. In addition to teaching, EAP faculty attend program- and university-wide meetings, contribute to institutional service, and may pursue ongoing research and practice in their academic or creative fields.  Appointments are for 3 years effective September 1, 2024; contracts are renewable. 

NYU Shanghai is looking for demonstrated excellence in university-level teaching. Candidates should be creative individuals who are flexible, outgoing, open to new environments, and respectful of diverse backgrounds and learning styles.

●    Specialized experience teaching content-based speaking and listening

Minimum qualifications:

●    Master’s degree in TESOL/Applied Linguistics or a related field
