Teach at a university in HARBIN
« on: December 05, 2013, 01:11:42 AM »
This ad comes to us from our own chanhonam, who writes:

My old uni is looking for teachers,preferbly someone from Britain. They have a lot of teachers from USA and possibly want some balance.
They offer a very standard contract for a uni with pay possibly on the low side but increases for experience and length of service. Harbin is a cheap place to live if rather cold. Accommodation is a brand new building with apartments very well decorated and with all mod cons.
They are second only to Harbin Institute of Technology in the province and increasingly getting a higher profile. There is never any issue with salary payment and it is paid direct into your bank account. FAO sometimes has business travel so not available but this has never been a problem as everything is very professionally run. They usually have around 10-12 English FTs plus one Japanese and one French FT. Good FT community and also quite a few foreign students also.
Very diverse range of classes, from small English major classes you see two or three times a week, non-English majors who choose your class as an option, large compulsory post-grad classes to classes for none English department teachers.
I would highly recommend this uni for anyone who doesn't mind the NE winters.
I would be happy to add more detail if required. Just search for Harbin Engineering Univeristy for website.

PM chanhonam for more details!
