The International and Areas Studies Program (IAS) at Washington University seeks to hire an academic coordinator. The successful candidate for this twelve-month staff position will hold a PhD in a discipline related to the IAS curriculum and have demonstrated expertise in both teaching and curriculum planning.

Develop and oversee academic and co-curricular programs for 250+ IAS undergraduate majors and minors including assisting with curriculum development and implementation, overseeing the advising system, and maintaining an active first-year academic program. Assist the Program Director in maintaining the high profile of IAS in A&S and beyond, in providing solutions and referrals to student academic problems and questions, in coordinating the assessment of the undergraduate program including reports for accreditation and other purposes, and in acting as a clearinghouse for information on international resources and opportunities. Serve as the faculty sponsor for the IAS undergraduate honorary and the Study Abroad advisor for IAS majors. Teach the equivalent of one class per term in the field of expertise.
