You will demonstrate a solid knowledge of the Tibetan language, with the ability to teach both literary and spoken forms; in addition you will be able to teach aspects of the history and civilization of Tibet, and supervise graduate students on topics in this area. You will show a commitment to communicating and publishing research in this field research. Your excellent communication, interpersonal, and organisational skills will be coupled with a willingness to take on appropriate administrative tasks.
