The university: St. George’s University (SGU) is a US-curriculum-based institution located on the beautiful island of Grenada in the West Indies. The University is comprised of the Schools of Medicine, Veterinary Medicine, Arts and Sciences, and a Graduate Studies program.
The Specialized English Language Program (SELP) is a small, innovative program that serves the language needs of the diverse student and faculty population at SGU. The primary goal of the program is to help students and faculty develop skills in reading, writing, and speaking to meet their academic and professional language demands. We are always expanding our programming to meet the needs of our dynamic campus.
Responsibilities: The instructor will contribute to developing curriculum and coordinating a new integrated-skills English for medical purposes course. In addition, the instructor will teach in the newly developed course and potentially work as part of a teaching team in our established composition courses for undergraduate premedical students. The instructor may also contribute to ongoing SELP programming, course and curriculum design, professional development (including an individual or team research agenda), and other program duties as needed. Instructors are expected to be on campus for 40 hours a week as responsibilities extend beyond teaching of assigned courses.
