AFG COLLEGE WITH THE UNIVERSITY OF ABERDEEN
LECTURER/SENIOR LECTURER IN BUSINESS MANAGEMENT
AFG College with the University of Aberdeen is a new higher education partnership forged in 2017. The partnership has created the first UK University in the State of Qatar outside of Qatar Foundation. The University welcomed its first undergraduate students in September 2017. With over 500 years of history, the University is committed to developing an experienced full-time faculty to support its first dedicated overseas campus.
AFG College with the University of Aberdeen is inviting qualified applicants to join an expanding academic team at the new campus in Qatar to deliver courses across our two undergraduate programmes in Business Management and Accountancy and Finance. Candidates will have an accomplished university teaching and learning background and ideally have prior trans-national education experience. The ability to teach in more than one cognitive business related area is essential. Successful candidates will also be expected, in addition to their teaching responsibilities, to contribute to the administration in the delivery of the programmes and to actively engage in relevant scholarship and research and collaborate with other research faculty in the growing wider academic community in Qatar.
It is desirable for candidates to hold a PhD or equivalent doctoral qualification achieved in the English medium, in a management related discipline. However, individuals who do not possess a postgraduate research degree but have a Master’s degree and significant industry experience (like Accountancy, Finance, Law, for example) are encouraged to apply.
It is desirable for candidates to have a minimum of 5 years T&L experience within a HE environment, and be able to contribute across the School’s Undergraduate portfolio of courses. Ideally candidates will have a teaching qualification, or be working towards one as well as membership of a relevant Higher Education Professional Body.
We are particularly keen to hear from candidates who can contribute to Finance, Economics and/or Business Law from January 2019.
We would also be interested in hearing from applicants who can contribute across our portfolio of courses in the following areas from August 2019: Accounting, Auditing, Finance, New Venture Development/Business Model Innovation, Operations Management, Business Strategy, Change Management, Organisational Behaviour.
How to apply:
Suitably qualified candidates should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae and a statement of their teaching philosophy to email@example.com. Candidates who have been deemed to have satisfied the necessary pre-requisites will be contacted by email to arrange a suitable time and place for the formal interview process.
Appointments at the Senior Lecturer level will be made based on qualifications, HE T&L experience and ability to demonstrate academic leadership in T&L, scholarship research and administrative contribution.
AFG College with the University of Aberdeen offer attractive expatriate packages commensurate with similar opportunities within the international higher education sector.
It is anticipated that the majority of faculty positions will be permanent posts, but we will also consider candidates who are interested in a sessional contract (per semester).
