Instructor in Arabic (2 posts)
University of Oxford – Faculty of Oriental Studies, Oriental Institute
|Salary:||£28,098 to £33,518 p.a.|
|Placed on:||2nd July 2018|
|Closes:||1st August 2018|
We are looking for two committed and highly effective Instructors in Arabic, to commence on 1 October 2018. The Instructors will give instruction in Arabic language to undergraduate and graduate students, and undertake administration, course development and examining when required. One post is permanent, while the other is a 5 year fixed-term position covering the secondment of a colleague to a major research project.
For both posts, the Instructor will give approximately 16 hours of teaching in language classes each week during the University’s term, including instruction in Arabic language at all levels for undergraduate and graduate degree programmes; reading classes for modern and pre-modern texts (literary, historical and socio-cultural); and familiarisation of students with contemporary Arabic media. The Instructor will develop teaching materials for these programmes, and will examine for undergraduate and graduate degrees. She/he will also help students prepare for their study year abroad, and may assist with the practical arrangements for this, as well as with the administration of courses or other aspects of the work of the Arabic, Persian and Turkish Subject Group.
The successful candidates will have a native or equivalent command of Arabic and an equivalent command of English. They will demonstrate a commitment to dynamic and effective language teaching, and have experience teaching Arabic as a foreign language in a university or equivalent higher educational institution. Ideally the candidates will also have completed a first degree or postgraduate qualification in Arabic language, language pedagogy or applied linguistics (or another relevant field in which Arabic language forms the focus), and be able to teach an Arabic dialect.
The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 1 August 2018. Please note that all applications will automatically be considered for both posts unless the applicant indicates otherwise, so only one application needs to be submitted.
