Resident Directorship of
Penn Abroad Program
Seville, Spain: 2003-2004

The Office of International Programs will be appointing a University of Pennsylvania faculty member to direct its program in Seville, Spain, during the 2003-2004 academic year. The program is sponsored jointly with Cornell University and the University of Michigan, and enrolls up to 45 students from all three schools for one or two semesters of study at the University of Seville.

The Resident Director is the academic and administrative head of the program, supervising the on-site operations and staff (an assistant director and an office assistant), advising students on their academic program and course selection, and serving as the representative of the program in Spain. He/she will also teach one course each term to program participants. Requirements for the position include fluent Spanish and a demonstrated ability to work with undergraduate students. Administrative experience is also desirable.

It is expected that the Resident Director will spend eleven months in Spain, arriving in late August and remaining through July 15 of the following year. Salary and benefits will be negotiated with the selected candidate. The program provides housing and supplementary medical insurance. Additionally, the program will pay for an orientation trip for the Resident Director and for travel for the academic year for the Resident Director and his or her spouse, and will provide a limited allowance for excess baggage.

Faculty who wish to be considered for the directorship should submit a letter of application and a current curriculum vitae to Donna Butler, Office of International Programs, 133 Bennett Hall, by March 8, 2002. For further information please contact Donna Butler at (215) 898-1652 or by e-mail at
