The American University of Nigeria
The American University of Nigeria (AUN), in partnership with The American University, Washington, D.C., seeks qualified candidates for faculty positions in English/Writing Instructors.
The American University of Nigeria is an affiliate of the American University - Washington D.C.. Currently in its seventh year of operation, AUN is located in Yola, the Capital of the Adamawa State. AUN is a rapidly growing, private, non-profit university featuring a wireless campus, state-of-the-art buildings and infrastructure, small classes, and a preponderance of U.S. educated faculty and senior administrators. AUN is the first private, American-style University in Nigeria. With a current enrollment of 1,500 students, AUN is led by a team of approximately 100 Faculty. The University enrolls students in three Schools: The School of Arts and Sciences, The School of Business and Entrepreneurship; and the School of Information Technology and Communications.
Successful candidates should:
- Understand the challenges and significance of working within an institution of higher education in a rural region of a developing country;
- Be able to interact effectively with both the University community and the broader community;
- Commit to academic integrity; and
- Possess initiative, energy, flexibility, and creativity.
These English/Writing Faculty positions are focused on addressing the entry-level, at-risk students at the University. Candidates experienced in teaching fundamental writing, basic college writing, and working with at-risk students are encouraged to apply. Faculty would be attached to the AUN Writing Center, and work largely with a population whose first language is not English. Applicants must have the appropriate academic credentials: a minimum of a master’s degree in English, credentials in TOEFL, demonstrated experience in working with at-risk students, successful U.S. teaching experience, and experience teaching students who speak English as a second language. Experience in Africa or other parts of the developing world is a plus.
The salary is competitive and commensurate with experience. Housing will be provided. Other benefits will be discussed in detail with qualified applicants. Working through its U.S. recruiting agent, Hermitage Consulting Associates, Ltd., Faculty Recruitment International™, AUN invites qualified applicants. Applications will be received and evaluated until the positions are filled. Only successful candidates will be contacted for an interview. Please visit the University website at: http://aun.edu.ng.
