Assistant/Associate Professor of First Year Studies
Closing date: Sunday, 4 June 2017
Richmond, The American International University in London, is seeking to appoint an Assistant or Associate Professor of First Year Studies to teach, develop, and oversee the courses Transitions I & II As Richmond is an international university with students from over 100 countries and has a distinct intercultural mission, an international outlook and experience of both US and UK systems of higher education would be a distinct advantage. The appointment would begin in September 2017.
An MA or PhD in a related field and an active research record supported by publications or with demonstrable potential to develop such a record to complement and enhance the current research within the department, are desirable.
Appointment will be made at Assistant or Associate Professor level, depending on qualifications and with a salary commensurate with teaching and practical experience in the field. Referees will be contacted prior to shortlisted candidates being invited for interview and applicants will be notified of this in advance. Applications for more than one of these three advertised positions are welcome.
The Assistant/Associate Professor of First Year Studies will be required to work primarily at the Richmond Campus, but may be required to work at the Kensington Campus, as teaching and administrative workloads demand.
Richmond is a private, not-for-profit, liberal arts and business studies University. It is accredited in the USA by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and in the UK by The Open University.
