University Teaching Position – Southern Mexico – Sept 2017

June 15, 2017

This guest blog is from Kate Gamble, of the Hiring Committee, Centro de Idiomas, UTM.



EFL Professor, Universidad Tecnológica de la Mixteca (UTM), Huajuapan de León, Oaxaca, Mexico

The available position is to start in September 2017.

University position with attractive benefits in rural southern Mexico.

Teachers teach 3-5 classes daily and have the opportunity to contribute to other areas of the faculty and the local community.

Qualifications: Successful applicants will have a B.A. + CELTA or equivalent or an M.A. in a relevant field and classroom teaching experience.  A Bachelor’s degree is a minimum requirement for teaching at university level in Mexico, so we cannot consider applicants who do not have a Bachelor’s degree.  Specific TESL/TEFL training is also a requirement of the university’s Academic
Council.  Although it is not a requirement, ability in Spanish or another foreign language would be a definite asset.

Aside from providing quality instruction to students, the department focuses on both professional and community development and we are looking for motivated, self-starters who are willing to participate in projects outside of classes.

Location:  University/college campus in Huajuapan de Leon, a city of about 80,000 people situated in the beautiful state of Oaxaca.
Wage: Take home pay is approximately $13,500 – 16,000 MXN per month, depending on qualifications and experience, which is a very competitive local salary.  Teachers also receive benefits including healthcare, savings plan, bonuses and 5 weeks paid vacation.  Please note that all travel to the university, housing expenses and visa fees have to be paid for by the teacher.  The university does not pay for travel expenses, housing or visa applications (initial or renewals).
