Full-time Non-Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Academic Writing and Intellectual Breadth

The Liberal Arts Division (LAD) at UM-SJTU JI, located in Shanghai, China invites applications for multiple full-time lecturer positions in Academic Writing and Intellectual Breadth. The position offers an exciting opportunity to teach some of the highest-achieving students in China while living in Shanghai, a world-class, cosmopolitan metropolis. The successful candidate will contribute directly to the continuing development of a young liberal arts program in collaboration with an energetic and diverse community of faculty members. The UM-SJTU JI is an English-based higher education institute founded in 2006, in collaboration between the University of Michigan and Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Both partner universities are fully committed to developing JI as a world-class institute for engineering education. In 2014, JI was the first Chinese institution to win the prestigious Andrew Heiskell Award for Innovation in International Education—one of the highest honors in international higher education. In a short time, JI has become an exemplary model of Sino-American educational collaboration. Academic Writing courses are sequenced over the Fall and Spring trimesters and aim to teach students the principles, conventions, and styles of Academic Writing. Essay assignments focus on critical thinking skills, the multi-draft writing process, and academic research across a variety of genres and disciplines. The LAD values diversity and innovation, and individual lecturers are encouraged to develop their own courses based on subjects and texts within their own fields of research. Intellectual Breadth courses encompass a variety of non-engineering disciplines including Literature, History, and Creative Writing. This coursework is equivalent to what is often called “general education” and it serves a critical function in broaden-ing the intellectual horizons of our high-achieving students. JI operates on a trimester schedule, and the successful candidate is expected to teach six courses a year. The anticipated teaching ratio for this position is 4 AW and 2 IB courses, two courses per trimester, scheduled approximately as follows: A 13-week Fall trimester, mid-September to early December A 10-week, accelerated Spring trimester, late-February to late-April A 14-week Summer trimester, mid-May to early August Due to the irregularity of Chinese and American holidays, JI’s Winter vacation lasts from early December to late-February, and Summer vacation lasts from early August to mid-September.
