Schneider" Subject: Job opening: teach English in Germany? In my department there will be an opening for a position of "Lektor", beginning this fall. Job duties include mostly language instruction (i.e. teaching "general language courses", grammar, translation German - English, phonetics, etc.; also courses on American culture / history / etc.). Applicants must be native speakers of English resident in an English-speaking country before taking this job. They must have at least a Master`s degree in English, linguistics, German, or possibly some other related field (Ph.D. or ABD status would be a plus); they should have some formal training in TESOL. Also, some knowledge of German is mandatory (as duties include teaching translation from German on an advanced level). The successful candidate will be given a two-year contract, renewable for another three years afterwards, but not beyond those five years. The salary is calculated on the basis of the BATIIa scale of the German civil service. Salary and fringe benefits to some extent depend on age and marital status but can be expected to be in the range of some 50.000 Deutsche Mark net per annum. This is only a short announcement; for further details and a fuller job description, write me or send me an e-mail message.If you know someone who might qualify, feel free to pass this on. Applications should be sent to me by the end of April.
