South China University of Technology School of Foreign Languages - Full-Time Lecturers and English Language Teachers (multiple positions) - Guangzhou, China

Posted By: South China University of Technology <[email protected]>
Date: Thursday, 18 January 2018, at 2:27 p.m.

The School of Foreign Languages at the South China University of Technology (SCUT) seeks to fill multiple positions for the coming academic year.
• Full-Time Lecturers, preferably with an interest in business, finance, and marketing, for Business English majors. These students have varied career goals that include teaching, translation, entrepreneurship, law, journalism, and study for advanced degrees.
• English Language Teachers focusing on writing and academic speaking for students in science and engineering programs, primarily at the graduate level.

All positions require 14-16 classroom hours per week, typically arranged on two or three days. Specific assignments vary, especially for the English Language Teachers, who are assigned to meet the needs of other academic departments. Additional service duties (requiring about two hours per week when classes are in session) may include conversation tutorials, participation in English Corner, or proofreading.

Minimum qualifications include a bachelor’s degree and two years’ teaching experience. A master’s or Ph.D. in a relevant field is preferred for the Full-Time Lecturers. TESOL, TESL, or TEFL certificates are preferred for English Language Teachers. Candidates must demonstrate their commitment to excellence in teaching, comfort in classrooms where English is spoken as a foreign language, and sensitivity to intercultural exchange.

Compensation is 7,500 CNY per month (9,000 for those with an advanced degree). The university reimburses foreign faculty for round-trip airfare, provides health insurance, and offers a furnished, on-campus apartment or a modest housing subsidy. Faculty have access to exercise facilities (for a slight fee), inexpensive meals (10-15 CNY) at campus canteens, and Chinese classes at the university.

Candidates must obtain or extend their work permit in order to be eligible for these positions. Newcomers must successfully apply for a single-entry Z visa before entering the People’s Republic; any Chinese tourist visa they held previously will be cancelled. Once faculty have entered the country, they must remain until they obtain their work and residence permits, a process that takes about a month. Student volunteers and the Foreign Teachers’ Office will assist faculty in this process, but faculty are responsible for any fees.

Requirements for certification as a foreign expert and work permit in the People’s Republic of China are subject to change, but currently request:
• Passport with at least one year’s validity and two blank visa pages (having more than the minimum is prudent)
• Official application form and a CV in the required format (the school will help with translation into Chinese)
• Verified college degree and work experience
• English as a first language
• Certificate of no criminal history
• Good general health and absence of communicable diseases, confirmed by a physical examination within 5 days of arrival
• Age older than 18 and no more than 59

The academic year runs from September to mid-July and makes provisions for Chinese holidays only. There is a break between terms that typically begins in mid-January and continues through February. Faculty are free to travel when classes are not in session, and the residence permit, once obtained, serves as a multiple-entry visa.

To apply, send a cover letter, CV, and three references to [email protected] (sfl_office @ Inquires to this address in advance of an application are welcome. Review of applications and remote interviews of candidates will begin on 1 March 2018 and will continue until the positions are filled. Couples are welcome to apply.

SCUT ( is a leading university for science and engineering, recently classified as a Double A research institute and ranked eleventh of universities in the People’s Republic of China. It has two campuses in Guangzhou (an older campus in Wushan and new facilities in University Town) and is planning a third international campus nearby.
