Hello all

Does anyone know if AUS hires annually for their writing program, or only when they need to replace someone?

Isn't this one of the very best and also one of the most difficult of institutions to get employed at in the UAE because it is so good?

I've recommended it to two colleagues-- one with a PhD in English and 15+ years teaching experience with undergrads and graduate students. The other has an MA in Comp/Rhetoric and several years of teaching experience with undergrads. Neither have taught outside the US though.

I'm also eyeing them for myself for 2020-- I've got 10+ years experience (post MA TESOL) and will have a second MA in Rhetoric & Writing. I have taught overseas and here in California.

Right now we're all just looking at accredited writing programs overseas with solid reputations and a high caliber faculty. But I wanted to make sure I knew what I was talking about, since I am the one who recommended AUS to them.

It's doubtful they have annual vacancies; it's the most desirable university to work at in the UAE. All you can do is keep an eye on their job board. But if they ever have openings, they'll have a pool of highly qualified, UAE-experienced applicants to choose from.

BTW, don't overlook New York University-Abu Dhabi (NYUAD); it usually advertises for writing program instructors.
