The Division of Arts and Sciences (https://www.qatar.tamu.edu/academics/arts-and-sciences/ ) at Texas A&M University at Qatar (TAMUQ) (http://www.qatar.tamu.edu/ ) invites applications for a non-tenure track faculty position at the rank of Instructional Assistant Professor, responsible primarily for teaching undergraduate physics courses at the university’s international branch campus in Qatar.
This position assumes a 9-month full-time academic appointment with an anticipated start date of Summer or Fall 2024, renewable on a yearly basis. The normal teaching load is three courses during each of the fall and spring semesters (3-3). In addition, TAMUQ typically also offers summer appointments opportunities, and regular availability for teaching in the summer term is highly desirable. The successful candidate will also share the Division of Arts and Sciences’ commitment to teaching excellence and take part in the shared governance of its teaching and service missions.
Review of applications will start immediately and continue until the position is filled. The Division of Arts and Sciences is fully committed to a culturally and academically diverse faculty. This position is in Qatar, a Gulf State in the Middle East, and the successful candidate must relocate to Doha, the capital of Qatar. Doha is a vibrant multicultural city which has excellent schools and hosted the 2022 FIFA world cup.
Texas A&M University at Qatar is a partnership with the Qatar Foundation and is based in a state-of-the-art 595,000 square foot building that was completed in 2007. TAMUQ offers Bachelor of Science degrees in Chemical, Electrical and Computer, Mechanical, and Petroleum Engineering and Master degree in Chemical Engineering (MS and M.Eng). The Division of Arts and Sciences teaches courses in physics and other disciplines for TAMUQ's engineering students. The degree programs are identical to those of the main campus at College Station, Texas. A Texas A&M University diploma is awarded to graduates.
Doha is the home of Education City (https://www.qf.org.qa/education/higher-education ), a dedicated multi-university campus devoted to research and education. In addition to TAMUQ, Education City hosts several other academic institutions, including the Weill Cornell Medical School, Carnegie-Mellon University, Virginia Commonwealth University, Northwestern University, University College London, Georgetown University, and Hamad bin Khalifa University. As international institutions of higher learning, TAMUQ and its partners in Education City have significantly contributed to the development of post-secondary education and cultural growth in Qatar.
Texas A&M University at Qatar offers competitive salary packages commensurate with qualifications and experience. The packages include housing, annual home leave allowances, dependent education, local transportation allowance, medical insurance for the employee and dependents, plus appropriate relocation and repatriation expenses. Faculty members are also eligible for professional development funds to help them with teaching and curriculum development.
A doctorate in Physics by the time of appointment is required. Applications are welcome from candidates from any subfield in Physics with an excellent teaching track record or high potential to become excellent undergraduate instructors.
Demonstrated success in or preparation for meeting the needs of diverse, international student populations is highly desirable.
Prior experience in or familiarity with the U.S. higher education system is also welcome.
Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a personal statement to include teaching and plans for teaching and service, and names and contact information of three (3) professional references who will send letters when requested.
