Job description

Company Description
Nazarbayev University was launched in 2010 as a premier national and regional university, partnered with internationally-recognized names in higher education. The strategic partner of the School of Sciences and Humanities is the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Admission to NU is highly competitive and the students are among the most academically gifted in Kazakhstan. Most students participate in the NU foundation year program, and thus enter the School of Sciences and Humanities with extensive English language training and academic preparation. SSH programs emphasize student-oriented learning, with small class sizes and a low student-to-faculty ratio of about 15:1. All classes are taught in English.

Applicants should preferably have a PhD, minimally an MA degree in Philosophy or a related field by the start date and will be expected to demonstrate potential for teaching excellence. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to a team-taught introductory Ethics course.
