Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: The position may have been removed or expired!

This is an exciting time to work in higher education in Egypt. With over 60 million young people under the age of 25, the development of a modern vibrant higher education sector has been recognised as being vital to support Egypt’s transformation agenda.

With its 15 year track record in delivering high-quality UK higher education in Egypt, the British University in Egypt (BUE) is perfectly placed to embrace this agenda and to produce qualified graduates to support the development of Egypt and the wider MENA region.

BUE has been offering a UK-style higher education experience and UK-validated degrees in Egypt since 2005. With over 11,000 students, BUE is the largest provider of British higher education in Egypt and one of the largest in the MENA region. A private Egyptian university, our mission is to be a leading research and teaching university in Egypt based on UK best practice. Our teaching is in English and our UK validating partners are London South Bank University and Queen Margaret University Edinburgh. We are based on a striking campus 35 kms east of Cairo and close to the airport and the new administrative capital.

We are looking for an outstanding academic to join our growing international team. In addition to experience of working in UK higher education, we are seeking an individual with a passion for working internationally and delivering a transformative academic student experience.


We are looking for a Lecturer, Senior Lecturer or Professor for the Department of Civil Engineering based in the Faculty of Engineering. We are looking for a well-qualified individual to teach across all civil engineering modules, but are particularly interested in someone with a specialism in Surveying or Transportation Engineering.

You will have a PhD in a relevant area, ideally three years postdoctoral experience of working in UK higher education, and ideally a teaching qualification. A record of research and publication is desirable, as is experience of working internationally. All academic posts at BUE include teaching, research and administrative responsibilities.

More information about the Faculty of Engineering and the Department of Civil Engineering can be found at https://www.bue.edu.eg/faculties-departments/engineering/


The post comes with an attractive remuneration package and will commence depending on the availability of the successful candidate. Contracts are usually offered for a two-year period in the first instance. The post will remain open until filled.

To Apply: Please send a CV and cover letter outlining your experience to Professor Leslie Croxford, Senior Vice-President for Teaching and Learning at lcroxford@bue.edu.eg .
