Détails de l'opportunité

The Open Society Foundations are currently recruiting instructors of the social sciences and the humanities to teach at the Open Society Scholarship Programs’ 2015 Pre-Academic Summer Program in Istanbul. There will be two summer school sessions held in 2015: the first from June 27–July 24, and the second from August 1–26. Both sessions will be identical in structure and instructors can apply to teach at one or both sessions. Instructors will be expected to attend two days of preparation as a part of each session: June 27–28 for the first session, and August 1–2 for the second session.

The summer school program is designed to prepare scholarship finalists from Africa, Asia, Central Asia & the Caucasus, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia for graduate studies or faculty programs primarily in the Untied States and Europe. The primary purpose of the program is to assist students in improving their academic writing and research skills in preparation for a western-style academic environment. The curriculum is an integration of academic writing courses with intensive seminar-style social science courses, and all courses are taught in English.

Job Profile:

Participants in the summer school take one academic writing course (2 hours per day, 4–5 days a week) and one social science course (1.5 hours a day, 4–5 days a week). Social science instructors will work closely with academic writing instructors during the pre-program preparation to coordinate their course approach and writing/research assignments. Each course is expected to have approximately 15 students. The expected total number of students attending each summer school session is approximately 70. Students attending the summer school will be entering graduate programs in a wide range of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, including political science, human rights, international relations, education, environmental studies, public health, anthropology, economics, gender studies, sociology, law, history, and development studies.

Social science instructors will teach one course lasting 3.5 weeks for each summer school session. The total number of classes will be 12 per session, with the three last days of the program set aside for instructors to grade projects and work closely with academic writing instructors on final student evaluations.

Teaching hours: Approximately 1.5 teaching hours per day for four to five days a week, plus a required minimum of 2 hours per day for student consultations.

Additional responsibilities: Instructors will be called upon and are encouraged to assist with extracurricular activities and special events during the course of each session. They will also be expected to conduct additional lectures in their field or to facilitate presentations that orient students to graduate studies in the United States and Europe.


Candidates are expected to hold a PhD in their field and have experience teaching international students with varying levels of English ability and preparation in the subject. Preference will be given to individuals with significant experience teaching in a Western institution and experience living/teaching in the participants’ home regions (Africa, Asia, Central Asia & the Caucasus, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia). Due to budgetary considerations, preference will also be given to those who are able to travel inexpensively and conveniently to Istanbul.

Work Environment and Physical Demands

Essential functions are typically performed in an office setting with a low level of noise. Reasonable accommodations may be made to enable individuals with disabilities to perform the essential functions.

Instructors will receive US$4,400 per summer school session, round-trip travel to Istanbul, and accommodation.
