I would like to find a university position in Thailand. I have lots of experience teaching in many countries. Where is the best place to find job postings?

IF you have a PhD then use your professional network in the field.
Contact the faculty secretary of the department of your specialization (English, TEFL, Edu, School of Business, School of Law, etc).

If you have nothing other than a BA+TEFL then bang on the door at the local uni's language center.
eg: http://litu.tu.ac.th/2016/en/category/adjunct-faculty-members

Uni jobs are usually about who you know and who knows you (lots of Uni-job postings on the various Faculty's Facebook pages as well for those with relevant graduate level qualifications).

Alternatively, google "ajarn + jobs".

Keep in mind that unlike other countries, university jobs do not give you a high salary.
At standard universities eg SSRU, Rajamangala, RKK, expect ~25-30k maximum.
At the top universities: Mahidol, Chula, TU, the rate is ~35-40k.

There are private unis (Rangsit, BU, AU) which pay -slightly- more. But like the guy above said, there it is more about who you know.


You can get better than this at some language schools. You could probably earn more just teaching 1-1 to university students, if you target the rich private ones. If you are determined to teach at uni here: contacting each university would be best, either face to face or by email. That's how most people I know found their jobs.
