NOTE FROM BLACKLIST MONITOR: This university is offering full-time
one-year contracts (specifically delineated as "Foreign Language
Contract Lecturer", limited to "native speakers of English") capped at
two renewals (violating Ministry of Education guidelines against
capping contracts). The job not only requires a heavy workload of 10
classes per week, plus "contributions towards the development of the
program and carry out other administrative duties as requested"
(whatever that could mysteriously entail), but also "sufficient
proficiency in Japanese to deal with the administrative staff without
assistance". If the university wants a candidate of this quality and
dedication, it should offer more job stability. --Arudou Debito, Blacklist Moderator
