Employment Opportunities

The IUHPFL begins recruitment for teaching staff for its summer Programs in France, Germany, Mexico and Spain every fall for the next summer. In addition, the office employs volunteer interns for general support functions. Volunteer interns may work all year, depending on their schedule and the needs of the office. Interested volunteer interns are encouraged to contact the office at .


The role of an instructor during the Program is complex and demanding. For greater clarity, the IUHPFL assembled a job description which should provide applicants with a solid understanding before they apply. Every year, more than 30 instructors (three to four per site) are selected to accompany groups of students abroad, teach and support them during their stay. Instructors play a vital role in enabling students to immerse themselves into the culture and language.


Individuals providing references for prospective IUHPFL instructors are required to use the IUHPFL Reference Form. References are due to the IUHPFL office by November 4, 2013.
