Are you an internationally experienced academic or practitioner in the field of Engineering, Computing or Design and Media, looking for your next global adventure?

Coventry University is proud to be partnered with El Sewedy Education on its flagship project   “The Knowledge Hub”, with its campus to be based in Egypt (New Capital).

The Knowledge Hub is situated on a new development within a primary area of the New Administrative Capital, close proximity to the Cathedral, the Diplomatic district and government headquarters. The New Administrative Capital located 60km from Cairo is a city intended for over 6 million inhabitants on a 168,000 acre area.

The Knowledge Hub and Coventry University will collaborate to prepare students for a future global career in a stimulating, enriching and innovative environment. The first collaboration of its kind for Coventry University, this project will bridge the gap between business, academia and society whilst encouraging a culture of innovation.

Working closely together, we will be offering a range of degrees which will be awarded by Coventry University.

With plans to launch in September 2019, Coventry University are developing 4 year undergraduate degrees in the areas of Engineering, Computing, Design and Media.

While Programme awards are under development and subject to institutional approval, we are now opening an initial number of academic roles for expressions of interest.

Further academic roles will be advertised in the coming weeks.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a new academic development in a vibrant market and we are keen to engage with dynamic, innovative individuals who are passionate about the difference education can make in the world - whether they have a background in Higher Education or are experienced professionals who want to explore a rewarding career in teaching. Competitive packages will be available for discussion with candidates.

If the above elicits your curiosity, please send your expression of interest including a CV and a cover letter at, by 15th February 2019. Shortlisted applicants will be contacted within four weeks.

Please note: Successful candidates will be employed by The Knowledge Hub and not Coventry University.
