Resident Directorship of Penn Abroad Program in Seville, Spain
The Office of International Programs (OIP) will be appointing a University of Pennsylvania faculty member with a strong commitment to undergraduate education to teach a course at its Academic Year in Spain program center in Seville during the spring 2006 semester.
The program, a consortium of the Universities of Michigan and Pennsylvania and Cornell University, enrolls up to 45 students each term; students select their courses from among those offered at the Universidad de Sevilla and at the program center. Program center courses, including the one to be taught by the Penn faculty member, relate to some aspect in Spanish or Latin American culture, history, or politics. Students participating in the program are expected to have completed at least six semesters of university-level Spanish or the equivalent, and all courses, including those at the program center, are taught in Spanish.
Benefits of the position include round-trip airfare to Seville and related ground transportation costs and accommodation in the faculty apartment in central Seville from January 1 to June 30, 2006. The faculty member's salary and benefits remain the responsibility of the home department. To be considered for the position, interested faculty are asked to submit a letter of application, brief course description, and curriculum vitae. Materials should be submitted to the address below by October 15, 2004. Please note that this is a single-semester appointment only and replaces the year-long faculty directorship; the OIP will next be recruiting for this position for the fall 2007 term.
