AUW is a multicultural liberal arts university located in Chittagong, Bangladesh, with students from nineteen countries across Asia and the Middle East. With 550 Afghan students, AUW is dedicated to empowering Afghan women and providing them leadership, and academic training to enact their own visions. AUW is committed to recruiting Rohingya refugees and encourages women who are the first in their family to get a university education. Its mission is to graduate women who will be skilled and innovative professionals, service-oriented leaders in the communities in which they will work and live, and promoters of intercultural understanding and sustainable development in Asia and throughout the world. The university is dedicated to teaching excellence in a liberal arts setting, with a strong commitment to research and scholarly engagement.

Visiting faculty will teach for 2 months, beginning in June 2024. Professors will teach two courses in the following fields: Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Biophysics, Computer Science, Applied Mathematics, Environmental Science, Politics, Philosophy, Economics, Public Health, Dance, Theater, History, Literature, Comparative Religion, Data Science. Two research assistants will support each visiting faculty member.

AUW is seeking candidates who are recent PhD graduates and faculty appointments who have an unmitigated passion for women’s education and equity, and an interest in other cultures. We are seeking candidates eager to contribute to the education of women drawn from diverse national, ethnic, and socio-economic backgrounds.

Global Visiting Professors will receive round trip airfare to and from Chittagong, health insurance and faculty housing. Where possible, we encourage faculty to secure funding from their home institutions or other third parties. For those faculty without funding, AUW has a limited number of fellowships for visiting faculty.

To apply, please send your CV, proposal, and syllabus for 2 courses (include labs and anything necessary to supplement the course) to Hannah Taylor at Hannah.Taylor@asian-university.org by March 31, 2024.
