RMIT Vietnam invites applications for the position of LECTURER/ASSOCIATE LECTURER, JAPANESE LANGUAGE at the Hanoi campus. This is a full-time, fixed term/contract position.

The RMIT School of Languages & English offers a Bachelor of Languages, a new program at RMIT, launched in October 2017.

The Bachelor of Language provides an overview of popular theory, issues and opportunities in language and related industries. Students can specialize in Japanese language or Translating and Interpreting, or both. These are both high-growth fields in Vietnam, and industry in Vietnam has indicated HR shortages in both fields.
The Japanese stream of the Bachelor program takes students from beginner level, level 1, to an upper intermediate level of Japanese at level 6. The program culminates with 2 project-based courses, Japanese Language and Society and Japanese Language in Context, and then a work-integrated learning course and internship.

The Associate Lecturer in Japanese will be required to teach Japanese language courses and assist in academic, administrative, coordination of tasks related to these courses.
The Lecturer in Japanese will be expected to contribute to the teaching and research efforts of the University, within the School of Languages and English, specifically within undergraduate Programs.
