Candidates who can make use of these facilities are particularly encouraged to apply. The Department of International Affairs is committed to enhancing the diversity of the department and the curriculum. Candidates who can contribute to these goals are encouraged to apply and to identify their strengths and experiences in this area in their cover letter. Prospective candidates should send a cover letter indicating interest and qualifications, a current curriculum vita, teaching evaluations demonstrating excellence in instruction, original transcripts, and three letters of recommendation. Applications received by September 20, 2017 will be assured full consideration. The University of Georgia is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer.
