New American University Baghdad.
50 positions for ESL instructors.

First-year chaos can be expected.
$3500pm

http://www.eslcafe.com/joblist/index.cgi?read=46141

The general website has the Latin template "lorem ipsa...." so not a good omen.
http://www.auib.edu.iq/new/#

Asst. professors in others disciplines get $4500
Deans of faculties $6200 +

There's a huge number of unemployed Iraqi bilingual ESL teachers in Baghdad who are perfectly capable of teaching English at any level. No need for parachutists.

I suspect some of the 50 ESL teachers required would need to be "parachutists". $3500 would not be dished out to locals, even bilinguals (unless they have dual nationality).

An interesting read about the American University of Iraq Sulaimaniya (AUIS) here;

This thread is about the American University of Iraq - Baghdad and not AUIS. They're different, independent institutions.

There may be some (useful) contextual information as the president of AUIB in Baghdad is likely to be Dr Michael Mulnix who was previously a president of AUIS.

Not so. Mulnix has never been president of AUIS. (However, his wife served as the university's interim president from 2014-2016.) Mulnix is currently indicated as the president of the American University of Kurdistan (AUK) in Duhok, Kurdistan, which opened only four years ago. See http://auk.edu.krd/about/greeting-from-the-president/. It's unclear if he's temporarily overseeing academics at AUIB.

Regardless, those opinion pieces on AUIS were written about someone else and alleged incidents eight or so years ago. Different private university, different players, different time period.

$3500 isn't much but I have to admit the idea of working in Baghdad is enticing( the thrill/experience). Still, the accommodations would have to be decent

This.

Applied for it on Feb 27th and haven't heard anything yet. They said they'd get back to applicants within 14 days. Wondering if anyone else has heard back from AUIB?

The ad clearly states: "If we do not respond to you within 2 weeks of date of your application, it means that you have not been shortlisted." Give it another week.

Yeah, I get that. Was just eager to hear from anyone who's applied and received a response. I guess the position must have received quite a bit of interest. Wait and see.
