This ad currently appears on Dave's ESL Cafe. I'm applying. There are other university job offers, but they're all jokes compared to this one. Roughly $45,000/year to teach for nine months at 15 hours per week (plus some occasional extra work)? A hell of a lot better than my current gig at YB which, although nice, is seriously underpaid.
Attending the face-to-face interview is going to be a problem, though.
