Full-Time Collegiate Faculty Teaching Opportunities in Asia and Europe - Multiple Disciplines

UMUC is a globally-focused university serving more than 90,000 students worldwide. It has been delivering education to the U.S. military on major Asia and Europe installations for more than 60 years, in addition to current programs on smaller installations in Australia, Bahrain, Djibouti, Egypt Sinai, Guam, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and The United Arab Emirates. UMUC seeks experienced faculty to travel and teach America’s soldiers, marines, airmen and sailors, and their family members, in undergraduate degree programs at military installations primarily in Europe and Asia in the following disciplines: • Accounting • Economics • Behavioral Science (including sociology) • History (Europe only) • Computer Studies New faculty selected for these one-year positions will teach a minimum of two class sections a session in on-base education centers in UMUC’s unique 8-week, 5-session academic calendar. With few exceptions, new faculty will live off-base, commute by car to their classes, and change teaching locations 3-5 times per year. Full-privilege, base access cards will allow utilization of on-base gyms, commissaries, gas stations, convenient stores, shopping facilities (PX, BX or NEX), banks, libraries, travel/tour agencies, and post offices. Most common teaching assignments are on U.S. military bases in Germany, England, Italy, Japan and South Korea. “Downrange” assignments in Africa and the Middle East are much less common, but may occur. QUALIFICATIONS: UMUC is seeking professionals who can combine academic credentials and teaching experience with travel savvy, enthusiasm for educating our troops, and a tolerance for adventure. All positions require a minimum of a master’s degree from a regionally accredited institution with doctorate preferred. Candidates are sought who can teach a broad range of courses in their respective disciplines. Preference will be given to candidates with teaching approvals and experience in more than one of the desired disciplines. Although these positions are for on-site teaching, previous online teaching experience is desirable for hybrid courses which combine traditional and online formats. Applicants must be eligible for individual logistical support in host countries and a favorable background check under the terms of the agreements between the United States and the host countries. Faculty members are required to accept course and location assignments, although preferences are given consideration. Faculty members may sponsor their spouses, who may also receive a full-privilege ID card; however, some assignments downrange will be unaccompanied (i.e., spouses won’t have university or government support to accompany the faculty member). BENEFITS: UMUC offers an excellent benefits package, including travel expense reimbursement, military base privileges, health insurance, and retirement plans. A very generous compensation package includes base pay, housing allowance, session relocation stipend, currency adjustment, and optional overload teaching pay.
