Reports To : Dean, Bryant University-BITZH

Position Summary

Bryant University-BITZH (familiarly known as Bryant Zhuhai) invites applications for a faculty position with expertise in English, Writing, TESOL and/or Cultural Studies. Rank will depend upon both academic credentials and experience. Ideal candidates will have a Masters (minimum) or Ph.D. in English, Writing, TESOL, Linguistics or related disciplines. Native English speakers are preferred. This is a three-year appointment beginning September 1, 2021 through August 31, 2024, which may be renewed.  The academic year at Bryant Zhuhai runs from early September to late June and includes a winter break during Spring Festival (Chinese New Year).

Bryant Zhuhai currently offers several programs (in which English is the medium of instruction) in a joint venture partnership between Bryant University in Smithfield, Rhode Island, USA and Beijing Institute of Technology Zhuhai (BITZH): a 4-year undergraduate program in Accounting; a 2+2 Accounting program in which students study two years in Zhuhai before transferring to Bryant University or another accredited university to complete their degree; and a 3+2 Accounting program in which students study for three years in Zhuhai before transferring to Bryant University to complete both their undergraduate and master’s degrees. Bryant is planning to launch additional degrees soon. Because all instruction is in English, students require significant instructional support in English language acquisition, particularly during their freshman and sophomore years.

Bryant Zhuhai, which welcomed its first cohort of students in fall 2015, is in the city of Zhuhai in Guangdong Province in southern China near Hong Kong and Macau. Guangdong Province is a very important area for China’s economy, providing 10 percent of China’s total GDP and the location for many of China’s innovative manufacturing operations. A 32-mile-long bridge connecting Hong Kong to Zhuhai and Macau was opened in 2019 to increase the movement of people and commerce between Hong Kong and mainland China and Macau.
