Faculty Position in English
American University of Iraq, Department of English

The American University of Iraq, Sulaimani (AUIS) invites applications* for open rank positions in the Department of English. The projected starting date is August, 2016. Teaching duties will consist of classes in our Core Composition sequence as well as contributing to courses in our English Literature and English Journalism majors. We seek faculty with qualifications in Literature, Journalism, and Technical Writing.


All the department’s courses allow faculty considerable flexibility in course design and selection of readings. The primary responsibility of a faculty member is teaching and supporting student learning both inside and outside the classroom. Thus, faculty members are expected to keep current in their fields, to create syllabi for their courses that represent the current state of knowledge, to select textbooks and course materials that are appropriate to the level of the course, to use instructional methods and technologies that will engage students, to challenge students intellectually, to assess and support student progress during the course both in class and though individual appointments as may be required, and to evaluate student performance fairly and accurately at the conclusion of a course.

Additional responsibilities may include:

  • Developing new courses as needed
  • Student advising during Fall and Spring registration
  • Participating in service activities and faculty governance


  • Ph.D. from an accredited college or university in English, Literature, or a closely related field.
  • Native or near native fluency in spoken and written English.
  • Prior teaching experience at the post­secondary level, especially in composition.
  • Demonstrated strong commitment to teaching.
  • Evidence of outstanding teaching skills, including the ability to teach diverse populations, and students for whom English is not a native language.

Salary and Benefits:

Salary is competitive, tax-free, and commensurate with qualifications and experience. Benefits include relocation and shipping allowances, faculty housing, transportation to and from campus, subsidized medical insurance, and a summer travel allowance.

* Pending budgetary approval.
