Faculty Position in Psychology, Social Sciences or Philosophy
Northwestern University in Qatar (NU-Q)

Northwestern University's first international campus, Northwestern University in Qatar (NU-Q), is seeking a Liberal Arts faculty member.

Preference will be given to candidates in fields such as psychology, social sciences or philosophy. Professional interest in the MENA region is desirable. The successful candidate will teach an array of courses at the introductory and advanced, undergraduate levels; conduct scholarly research; and publish in an area of expertise. A Ph.D. in hand at the beginning of employment is required.

Our NU-Q programs in Liberal Arts, Communication and Journalism work to advance the understanding and practice of freedom of expression. Our goal is to build a Northwestern University legacy of education and discovery in a dynamic area of the world in which science, technology, health care and the information economy are fundamental goals of our host nation, Qatar. Many faculty find this to be a geographic area rich in research opportunities.

Toward this end, we seek individuals engaged in visionary lines of teaching, research and creative activity who will appreciate a culturally diverse community of students, faculty and staff comprised of women and men drawn from Qatar and the Persian Gulf, the Americas, South Asia, Europe, Africa, and elsewhere. The successful candidate will join faculty colleagues whose teaching experience includes Northwestern, Stanford, Cambridge, Columbia, Minnesota, and other highly ranked schools. Located in Education City in Doha, Qatar, NU-Q collaborates with sister institutions that include Carnegie Mellon, Cornell, Georgetown, Texas A&M, and Virginia Commonwealth and in 2017 will occupy its own 500,000 square foot building with leading edge teaching, research, and media technologies.

Ideal candidates for all positions are ones with strong commitments to undergraduate education and pedagogy, encouragement of research, and global vision.
NU-Q faculty-in-residence receive generous research and faculty development support as well a highly competitive salary and a package of benefits and overseas allowances. Candidate should be available to begin August 1, 2017. Rank and salary are dependent on qualifications and experience. All NU-Q appointments are for multi-year terms, and appointments do not carry tenure.

Applications received by December 1, 2016, will receive the highest priority. The search will continue and applications will be accepted until the position is filled.

To apply, please send a letter of application, a CV, a sample of writing/creative work, a statement of teaching philosophy, evidence of teaching effectiveness, and three letters of reference to: ATTN: Liberal Arts.

Northwestern University is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action Employer of all protected classes including veterans and individuals with disabilities. Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply. Hiring is contingent upon eligibility to work in Qatar.
