I agree with the above comment in that the demand for English Language teachers is much higher. However, it's not uncommon for foreigners to get teaching jobs in other subjects, especially in Vietnamese Universities. It may be worth contacting a few of the big universities, for example RMIT or HUTECH to see if they're recruiting at the moment.

Hope this helps!


There's more demand for English teachers than science teachers! It's unfortunate but that's the economic situation. I think Vietnam needs better science education though.
