BYU's Kennedy Center seeks applicants for China teachers program

The David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies at Brigham Young University is seeking applications from qualified couples and individuals to teach at a few highly respected universities in the People's Republic of China.

More than 600 people have participated in the program since 1989, making friends and building goodwill for both BYU and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Although most teach oral and written English, there is an increasing need for professionals with experience in the fields of linguistics, business, law, economics, science, culture and literature to teach in these fields.

Prior formal teaching experience is not required for placement nor are Chinese language skills, as all classes are taught in English.

Applicants with advanced degrees in any field are preferred by Chinese universities.

Applicants must be active members of the Church of Jesus Christ, be in a secure financial situation, have excellent emotional and physical health, be age 69 or younger by March 1, 2005, and have no childcare responsibilities.

Assignments are for 11 months beginning Aug. 1, 2005 and include an intense two-week orientation at BYU.

Chinese universities provide teachers with adequate housing and a small living stipend. Airfare is also provided for the participants.

Completed applications for the 2005–06 academic year must be received by Monday, Feb. 1, 2005.

Kennedy Center teacher nominees will be sent to Chinese universities around March 1.

Applications may be obtained by writing to China Teachers Program, David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies, Brigham Young University, 220 HRCB, Provo, Utah, 84604; (801) 422-5321; china-facilitators@byu.edu or see the Web site at http://www.kennedy.byu.edu/partners/chinateachers.html.

A new study published in PLOS ONE from BYU scientists finds that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is almost immediately nonviable if deposited on a cash banknote. The virus actually shows greater stability on plastic money cards, with the live virus still being detected 48 hours after initial deposition, but no viable virus was detected on either cash or card that was randomly sampled in the study.
