great progress in various areas, with increasing international recognition of
its excellence in teaching, research and community service. The Times Higher

world’s top 300 universities. With the beautiful new campus (20 times larger
than the old one) becoming fully operational, the launch of Asia’s largest
residential college system, the establishment of new faculties, and the
increasing numbers of students and faculty members recruited from around the
world, UM possesses great potential and provides exciting new possibilities
for growth and development.

community with a strong international tradition for the teaching of Japanese
language. In addition to its undergraduate BA programme in Japanese Studies,
the Centre offers an undergraduate Minor in Japanese Studies, as well as
possible PhD supervision across the range of the department’s expertise. The
Centre has particular strengths in Japanese linguistics and anthropological
approaches to Asian studies. In addition to undergraduate language teaching
graduate-level teaching and supervision may be expected to develop within
Japanese Studies or related areas.


Applicants must hold a PhD in Japanese Studies or in a related area.
Applicants should have an excellent record of tertiary teaching and
supervision experience and a distinguished record of research and publication
at an international level. Academic specialization is open but applicants with
research specialization in curriculum design, language assessment or language

or near-native fluency in Japanese along with extensive experience teaching
Japanese as a second/foreign language. A good command of English is also
preferred. Applicants with administrative experience are especially welcome.
The selected candidate may assume duty as early as August 2015.

with the successful applicant academic qualifications, current position and
