The American University of Central Asia requires

faculty to teach the First Year Seminar Program. FYS is based on texts in philosophy, literature, religious studies, social sciences and humanities.

AUCA is Central Asia’s premier university on a purpose-built campus in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan.

SYS courses are 6 credit sections individually designed by faculty, who can take the opportunity to create courses in line with their area of expertise and specialization yet also meet standard requirements for all SYS sections. Regular Gen Ed courses can also be offered for 6 credits, and potentially 6 credits for Research on a case by case basis.

Applicants should meet the following minimal requirements:

*          PhD (exceptionally, MA) degree in the humanities or social sciences
