Founded in 1919, AUC’s campus is currently located in Cairo, Egypt, but will be moving to a new, state-of-the-art campus in New Cairo beginning Fall Semester, 2007 (see the New Campus website at www.aucegypt.edu/ncd/New%20Campus.html). AUC’s degree programs are accredited by the Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. For more information see our website at www.aucegypt.edu. One- two- or three-year appointments subject to mutual agreement will begin September 2006. Renewal of an appointment depends upon institutional needs and/or the appointee’s performance. The normal teaching load is three courses per semester and English is the language of instruction. Salary and rank are according to scale based on qualifications and professional experience. For expatriates, benefits include housing, annual round-trip air travel for appointee and qualifying dependents, plus schooling for the equivalent of up to two children at Cairo American College. In view of AUC's protocol agreement with the Egyptian Government, which requires specific proportions of Egyptian, U.S., and third-country citizen faculty, at this time preference will be given to qualified applicants who are U.S. citizens.
