American Councils for International Education is currently hiring short-term Resident Directors for the Critical Language Scholarship’s Japanese summer 2019 immersion program.
Resident Directors are the first-level of support for CLS students for the duration of the program. The Resident Director supports student success by ensuring the health and safety of the participants. Resident Directors report to the DC office weekly and are expected to communicate regularly with their DC-based Program Officer, particularly if adjustment, health, or safety issues occur.
The CLS in-country partner is responsible for administering the academic curriculum. Therefore, the Resident Director position is a non-teaching position. The approximate dates of the program are June to August. Resident Directors also attend a mandatory 3 day training in Washington, D.C. during May.
Competitive applicants will have demonstrated student support experience for undergraduate and/or graduate students, or experience leading or supporting a study abroad or language immersion program. Applicants must have advanced proficiency in Japanese.
