Lecturer I/II (PR339/16-17)


Hong Kong Baptist University invites applications for a temporary nine-month position to teach a required public speaking course for its General Education Programme. The appointee is expected to perform teaching duties related to all aspects of the public speaking course, including but not limited to presenting class lectures, conducting tutorials, grading speeches and related written work, meeting with students on an individual basis as needed, preparing teaching materials, and course record-keeping.


Applicants should hold at least a Master's degree in a discipline such as Communication, English, Humanities, Social Sciences, Business, or similar. Prior teaching experience is a strong advantage, especially in communication related subjects. Doctorate degree holders who are mature and capable of implementing this course at the highest level of expertise will be favourably considered. Although the course is taught with English as the medium of instruction, fluency in English, Cantonese and Putonghua is essential because some speech assignments will require the instructor to evaluate speeches given in Chinese.


Appointment will be made on a fixed-term contract of nine months.


Rank and salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
