Would you write:

Re: Application as junior activity teacher
Application for junior activity teacher

I know that you could write
Application for the job as a junior activity teacher.

But is there any of the other options acceptable?

    Thank you Parla , that's a good phrase.
    But we are discussing this topic in class and so I would like to know which of the other versions would be grammatically acceptable.

    I guess if I had to pick one of those two it would be application for; "as" would suggest too me that you already have the title.

    I probably came over the phrase

    a) application as a junior activity teacher

    because I thought it's possible to say:

    b) I apply for the job as (a) junior activity teacher.

    But now I'm not sure if b) is correct.

    Or is it very unusual or even wrong in the English language to use the phrase
    application for
    without the word job or position ?
    (as done in my examples from 3 Dec)

    'as' applies here because the application is grammatically practical for official purpose, ie. job application

    Re: Application for junior activity teacher = Application on behalf of a junior activity teacher.
    Re: Application as junior activity teacher = Application in my current position as a junior activity teacher.
