Job Opportunities at AGS
Assistant Professor: Non-Governmental Organizations
The American Graduate School in Paris is seeking to fill the interdisciplinary position of Assistant Professor to teach one of the two graduate courses on non-governmental organizations as part of the curriculum of its US-accredited Master of Arts program in International Relations and Diplomacy. The two courses together constitute the Certificate in NGO management program at AGS but can also be taken as electives to fulfill the M.A. program requirements.
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.
Candidates must hold a Ph.D. degree in international relations, political science, economics, or a related field. 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.
How to apply
Candidates should submit their curriculum vitae, a representative piece of academic research and recent student evaluations of their teaching electronically to Prof. Ruchi Anand at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be reviewed starting in June 2016.
We are always open to receiving CVs/resumes to keep them on file for any other future position openings, so please feel free to email email@example.com and we will forward your application to the appropriate departments.

As 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.
