The courses are expected to familiarize the students with the state of the art theories, research interests and issues in the field in order to provide a solid academic curriculum (especially for students wishing to pursue a related subject for their MA thesis) at the same time as giving students the practical knowledge of how to start, manage and run and NGO.

The ideal candidate will combine a record of outstanding academic research and teaching with practical experience in the area of non-governmental organizations/civil society. Experience in the American system of education is preferred. While candidates do not have to be native Anglophones, they must have a fluent level of English.

Position details

  • The course involves 37.5 hours of teaching time per semester, broken down into weekly three-hour sessions.

  • Candidates may have the opportunity to provide thesis advising in addition to their teaching hours, for an additional compensation.

  • Starting date: beginning of January 2017, possibly sooner.

quote leftAs citizens of the world community, AGSers share a deep will to improve international state of affairs. This drive for change translates into prescriptive discussion between students and teachers, not simply criticism. I most admire this quality about AGS and know that because we have the will to improve the system, we are the way for change.quote right
