A Program of the U.S. Embassy in Ethiopia
The Ambassador’s Distinguished Scholars will be a diverse set of qualified academics advancing scholarship in Ethiopia as full-time teaching faculty members at Ethiopian institutions of higher education. The aim of the program is to strengthen Ethiopian universities' capacity to teach and manage undergraduate and graduate programs and enhance research capacity within Ethiopian universities.
On November 13, 2017 from 2 pm - 3 pm EST, the program team will be conducting a live webinar, providing an overview of the program and answering any questions. For anyone unable to attend the webinar, a recording will be posted to the site.
Scholars will have the opportunity to engage in primary research with doctoral students, work to publish results, teach, design curriculum, mentor students, and collaborate with faculty at their host institution for one academic semester.
Program benefits include a monthly stipend and in-country advising from the IIE Ethiopia office as well as support from the universities, and the U.S. Embassy in Ethiopia.
We seek applications from a diverse range of qualified academics with a range of experience, including recent doctoral graduates and professors emeriti. Faculty positions are available in over 60 disciplines, with preferred fields of study including STEM fields, Social Sciences, and Humanities.
The deadline for applications is December 1, 2017 at 11:59 PM Pacific Standard Time (UTC-8). Only applications completed by the deadline will be reviewed.
