About the School of Interwoven Arts and Sciences (SIAS), Krea University:
The School of Interwoven Arts and Sciences at Krea University offers a distinctive undergraduate curriculum in the humanities, social sciences, literature, arts, and sciences, taught by distinguished faculty from some of the world’s finest academic institutions. The academic programme emphasizes their guiding principles of lnterwoven Learning, a multi-directional approach to knowledge that encourages creativity, critical thinking, communication, contemplation, cross-disciplinary approaches, real-world implementation, and the ability to negotiate unanswered questions.
The Economics Program in the School of Interwoven Arts and Sciences (SIAS) at Krea University invites you to teach and tutor undergraduate students by applying for a Teaching Fellow position. As a Teaching Fellow in the Economics program, you will have an opportunity to participate in the innovative curriculum design and pedagogy being developed at Krea University. You will also have the opportunity to work closely with our Economics faculty in all aspects of classroom engagement.
The Teaching Fellows Program at Krea University has been envisioned keeping two principles in mind. First, early-career economists are often unsure about pursuing an academic trajectory that incorporates both teaching and research largely because they lack prior teaching experience to make an informed decision. The Teaching Fellow program at Krea addresses this imbalance by providing a conducive environment for early-career academics to explore pedagogy first-hand with the full support and mentorship of the Krea faculty. Second, in order to promote a symbiosis between research and teaching, we encourage our Teaching Fellows to seek and leverage opportunities for professional advancement within and outside the Krea learning environment.
Educational Qualification: Candidates with a Masters degree in Economics or a related field, including Statistics, Operations Research, Demography, Finance, and Business Studies. MPhil or recent PhDs are also welcome to apply.
