Current Job Openings at Asian University for Women

Academics - Faculty and Instructors

Dean of the Humanities

Asian University for Women (AUW) is a Chittagong-based independent international university chartered by the Parliament of Bangladesh. AUW serves a community of over 1100 students drawn from Bangladesh and 18 other countries.  It offers a US-modeled, residential liberal arts and sciences undergraduate education taught in English. Admission to AUW is based on merit and the university exercises a strong preferential option in its financial aid policies and practices in favor of women from oppressed communities as well as those who are first in their family to go to university. AUW is scheduled to launch its inaugural Graduate Program in Education in January 2022 with plans of introducing additional graduate programs in the next few years.

The university is seeking a Dean of the Humanities to join its leadership team. The Dean of the Humanities will be responsible, in concert with other members of the leadership team, for developing and implementing the day-to-day management of the faculty and students.

Specifically, the Dean of the Humanities will be responsible for the planning and execution of the following key goals:

  1. Curriculum Development
  2. Design and establish a new undergraduate Humanities honors major that will bring studies in literature, history, philosophy, and religion to a central focus at AUW. This new major will need to be designed and structured in such a way that it attracts the most talented students to pursue it alongside a major in the social sciences or in the sciences. If required, students undertaking this educational pathway may be granted an additional year to complete their studies.
  3. Assess the teaching of the Humanities within the existing Core Curriculum and subsequently design and implement enhancements to it.
  4. Assess English language teaching and learning in the undergraduate program and recommend scope for improvements.
  5. Explore if “Tutorials” could be introduced at AUW and, if so, how?

Faculty Recruitment

  1. Serve as the nodal point for the recruitment of a group of up to seven PhDs, particularly from the Bangladeshi and other Diaspora, to join the Humanities Faculty on a full-time basis.
  2. Identify and recruit top visiting scholars from within Bangladesh and the wider region to make regular contributions to the teaching and scholarship of Humanities at AUW.
  3. Create opportunities for visiting faculty to contribute to the teaching and scholarship development at AUW.

New Program Development

  1. Based on existing programs, establish an Asian Languages Institute as a Center of Excellence in the teaching of Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), Japanese and Korean, in collaboration with international partners.
  2. Evaluate any curricular structural changes that may be necessary to accommodate intensive language learning at AUW.
  3. As part of the Asian Languages Institute, establish a network of partnerships with external institutions that will allow AUW students to spend up to a year abroad where they will gain further proficiency in the chosen language.

Teaching

Undergraduate education is the central focus of the Asian University for Women. It is expected that ordinarily all senior academic staff would be engaged in teaching and advising students. The Dean of the Humanities would be expected to teach a course/seminar to undergraduates on a topic related to their academic expertise.

Pre-Undergraduate Preparatory Program

As of January 2022, AUW is expected to have three distinct preparatory programs. In addition to the long-standing Pathways for Promise and Access Academy, AUW will introduce a two-year General Education Program aimed at addressing similar preparatory needs of a more diverse entering student body.  Each of the three deans is expected to take supervisory responsibility for one of the three preparatory programs. The Director of the General Education Program will report to the Dean of the Humanities.

New Campus Space Planning

AUW is now in the early stages of constructing its new permanent campus. The academic leadership and all members of faculty will be involved in providing input into this ongoing process. The Dean of the Humanities will be particularly involved in providing input on spatial and resource requirements for the effective teaching of humanities. They will also participate and assist, as a Secretary, in a special committee on the envisioning and creation of the AUW Library.

As a member of the Senior Leadership Team, the Dean of the Humanities would be expected to take on other roles as and when the prevailing circumstances warrant.

Qualified and interested applicants are invited to submit applications with the following documents:
