On the state of HE in Thailand, I feel the students are let down badly.  Also feel there is little any non Thai can do to change this state of affairs.  You either do your research and ignore it or sit there being agreed with in word but ignored as a token staff member of little import.

Yeah, but taking that as a given, are there billets for washed up cynics who just want 40,000 baht a month and something to do to structure the day? :smile:

 

China seems desperate for "please teach us English while pretending that this is a subject class" candidates, but - with only a couple of partial exceptions - the air quality looks like a deal breaker.

guess it does not matter if you are washed up or not, english or not, 40 k is whzt you get, no progression, no difference between unis

 

except chula and pcc each do about 100 k and 30 living or at least they did 5 years back or so

added info on chulla and pcc

I could turn my PGCE into a school one and look to teach in an international school - good money - but I'd rather nail my feet to the table than teach kids.

are you talking about the position for PhD?

that is extremely low and not reliable info.

Anything around 50-60 a month would be fine if I enjoyed the teaching. I can barely spend 20. I could change my PGCE (teaching certificate) to one for the schools, but I don't think I could be bothered teaching kids. I want to talk about John Locke, and whether he has a two-stage theory, I don't want to yell farang-slogans. 

 

Mind you, the latter might be what you'll do in the unis :smile:

I've only seen one uni job paying 60. It was big school right outside BKK, seems to churn thru instructors.

 

Expect half that. Want to make a living wage, teach secondary school or stay in PNH.

Hello everyone,

I'm not sure if it was the same university, but in case someone was looking for a lecturer job at a university down south, there are many vacancies at Walailak University.

 

lecturers-at-walailak-university-international-college/

That is an interesting job ad for someone to have followed up. Note that these posts are for subjects which have an applied focus.  Aspects of philosophy isn't one of them. OK, the salary quoted is not so hot, but if one's first F/T employment in HE it shouldn't matter. With 2/3 years experience under one's belt a potential springboard for further employment back home or elsewhere. Sometimes it is an opening like this that levers up the later career doors. (PS don't know of any other factors concerning this uni....someone mentioned it was down South).

HI Sheungwan,

 

it won't be just the salary, it will be the normal lack of insurance, lack of pension, lack of progression, lack of definable objectives

I get you are trying to put a postive spin on it

thing is if you are not covered by insurance then you should never put yourself in a position where you are supervising young people that may be killed, die, become maimed etc, under your charge.

because the uni will not help you.

Would recommend any reading Big danger sign in red you have been warned

Only on the basis of the announcement:
"salary" - right! However, point 3 says "start 52.000" - it means that depending on the experience/position etc. it may be better.
"normal lack of insurance" - point 4 states "medical and other benefits" - I believe it is about insurance.
"no pension" - again point 4 states "including provident fund" - I think it is a Thai equivalent of pension and, as far as I know, a very important factor for Thai lecturers. For Westerners - not so much, but it depends on how long you want to stay in this uni or in general in Thailand.
"no progression" - nothing in this ad - I think it is an individual thing and can happen anywhere, but I agree that Thai unis can happen more often.
"lack of definable objectives" - nothing in this ad - It depends on the uni, but again I agree that in Thai Unis it can happen more often than in other parts of the world.
