New Middle East position, University of Pennsylvania

The Associate Director for Development (ADD) for the Middle East Center will oversee the day-to-day operations of the Center, a federally funded (Title VI) National Resource Center, which is expanding the contemporary world affairs components of its teaching, research, and outreach efforts. The ADD will lead a new program design and fundraising effort in the successful candidate's specific field of expertise. (These might include economic development, mass media and society, human rights, migration, security studies, energy and geopolitics, health and society, or state building.)

At the same time, the ADD will assist the director in administering the Center's existing initiatives. In both the new and existing programs, the ADD will be working closely with faculty and students (undergraduates and graduates) in expanding the research-oriented curriculum and developing collaborative relationships with other institutions; strengthening linkages with scholars from the Middle East; organizing conferences and other public programming; and negotiating with foundation officers, public agencies, and private donors.

MA, Ph.D. preferred, in relevant discipline, combined with a strong Middle East Studies background. Knowledge of at least one of the languages of the region and overseas experience in the Middle East. Successful record of fundraising and grant writing. Some travel likely. Qualified candidates will be able to teach in their areas of interest and will be eligible for research support and conference travel funded by the Center.

Send letters of interest, curriculum vitae and a list of three referees, including your current supervisor, to Chair, Search Committee, Middle East Center, 839 Williams Hall, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA 19104-6305, by September 15, 2000.
