The IUHPFL begins recruitment for teaching staff for its summer programs in Austria, Chile, China, France, Mexico and Spain every fall for the next summer.
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. Résumés and cover letters are due to the IUHPFL office by October 2, 2015 and should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Every year, more than 40 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.
