XMU Personnel   Xiamen University's ICE Office used to handle the hiring of teachers from abroad, but now it is handled by the very helpful Miss Marina Yu, at XMU Personnel.  E-mail her your resume and queries; she has great English, and will respond promptly.  Visit Personnel's Job Page.  Suggestion: contact the departments directly, and if they are interested, have them contact Marina (though because of the language barrier, you may want to e-mail Marina if you don't get a response to an e-mail written in English).

Our Job Connections page has links to over 20 teaching opportunities in Xiamen as well a a few other places in Fujian province.  But if I were you I'd try for a job at Xiamen University!   It is China's most beautiful campus, and located in Xiamen (former Amoy), internationally recognized as China's most livable city.  When we moved here in 1988, planning on a year or two.  Unless we're kicked out, we'll never leave!

XMU is the only "Key" university in a Special Economic Zone, and the first founded by an Overseas Chinese.  And though Beijing and Shanghai schools may be more famous for now, we are catching up!  In December 2007, our Management College hosted an international event on campus with Harvard Business School, and afterwards, one of the HBS faculty, who is also very familiar with universities in Beijing and China, said, "Xiamen University is becoming the Harvard of China!"

So Click Here to join the faculty of the most beautiful campus on the planet. 

Supplement  The Office of International Cooperation and Exchange (ICE) used to be called the Office of Foreign Affairs but I think they changed the name be-cause I was also joking that their job was to oversee foreigners’ “affairs,” or that they were Huai Ban (bad affairs) instead of Wai Ban (foreign affairs). But I actually prefer the new name, ICE, because now I can call them ICE Agents (which sounds like villains in a James Bond movie). 

But for all my joking about ICE, they are the ones who make XMU life pos-sible and pleasant for us Laowai (foreigners)—but it hasn’t always been easy for them. For most of the past 20 years, the ICE office was small, cramped, and understaffed (and many of the staff did not even speak a foreign language, which I found strange for folks who were supposed to handle foreigners). But ICE now has a large, modern office, and the large staff is highly trained and highly motivated to lead XMU on her “Go into the World.” Thanks in large part to ICE, XMU is indeed going into the world—and it seems that the entire world is coming to XMU as well.

Foreigners used to be so rare on XMU that even I stared at them (though I usually didn’t point). But nowadays XMU has dozens of foreign teachers and well over 1600 foreign students. And it seems that not a week goes by that we don’t have a foreign delegation or a major international academic conference on campus. Our XMU is truly an international university, with exchange programs with prestigious universities in dozens of countries and regions, but you can be sure that whenever XMU “Walks into the World”, it is the agents of ICE who have taken the first step and made it possible. In addition, the Office for Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan Affairs, which is with ICE, has been instrumental in ensuring that XMU has closer ties with Taiwan than any other mainland university (which I appreciate, since my wife was born in Taiwan, and I lived there as well).

Thank you, ICE, for 20 years of friendship and support.

Dr. Bill

                               国际合作与交流处

国际合作与交流处以前叫“外事办公室”,我想他们之所以改名,可能是由于我曾戏称他们“坏办”,而非“外办”,因为他们常要处理一些外国人的突发状况。实际上我更偏爱这个新名字,因为这样我可以叫他们ICE特工了(听起来像007电影里的角色似的)。

但是玩笑归玩笑,是他们让我们这群老外能在厦大生活工作,并得以如此开心舒适—虽然对于他们来说并不一直是件容易的事。 在过去18年, 国际合作与交流处还是狭窄、拥挤的小地方,人手紧缺,有些工作人员甚至不会外语,(在我看来,从事外事的人不讲外语是件挺奇怪的事情)。但ICE现在已经是个宽敞而现代化的办公室了,工作人员也都训练有素,正充满激情地引领着厦大“走向世界”。 感谢国际合作与交流处的努力,厦门大学正走上通向世界的大道,整个世界也在走向厦大。

以前厦门大学的外国教师很少,偶尔见到几个,就连我也忍不住多看几眼(虽然我没有好奇的冲他们指指点点)。但厦大现在已有几十名外籍教师,留学生也已大大超过1600多名。几乎每周都有外国代表团来校访问,重要的国际学术会议也接连不断。我们厦大已经是个名副其实的国际型大学,它与世界各地几十个国家和地区的著名大学都开展了广泛的交流项目,然而厦大走向世界的每一步,都是ICE为其铺砖开路。除此之外,ICE下的港澳台办公室,也保证了厦门大学与台湾之间特别紧密地关系,这是内地其他大学所无法比拟的(对此我怀有特殊的感激,因为我的夫人是在台湾出生的,我自己也在台湾居住过一段时间。)

谢谢你,ICE,为我们十八年的友谊,也为在这本书写作过程中你们给予我的巨大鼓励和帮助。
