Hi, those who get job offers this year,

Congratulations! Could you please answer a few questions?

1) Job type: Research university or teaching college/university

2) Number of publications

3) Your teaching experiences?

4) Please describe your training in teaching Chinese as a foreign language.

5) Your current status (ABD, PhD, adjunct, visiting)

Thank you!

Could we also get a sense of how many people are using this wiki? - 8+1+1

  • I applied to quite a few lecturer positions in Chinese this year. Nearly no news at all, except for rejection from East Tenn. State Uni. and Tufts. How about others? any lecturer offer in Chinese so far? Thanks
  • I did not apply. Most schools interview applicants for lecturer positions much later. Don't panic.
