MULTIPLE FACULTY POSITIONS, OPEN RANK: FULBRIGHT SCHOOL OF PUBLIC POLICY AND MANAGEMENT

Fulbright University Vietnam (Fulbright) seeks applications and nominations for two faculty positions in the Fulbright School of Public Policy and Management (FSPPM). The positions are open with respect to rank and field. Preference will be given to applicants in the following three broad categories:

  1. public management, administration and leadership (including negotiation and communication);
  2. macroeconomics
  3. international trade policy.

The Institution

Located in Ho Chi Minh City, Fulbright is a private, not-for-profit university announced by President Barack Obama on May 24, 2016 and given substantial financial support from the US State Department, USAID, and a variety of private donors. We are dedicated to a lofty mission: reimagining the way universities work.

We aim to create an institution that can transform the lives our students, address the pressing needs of Vietnamese society, and ultimately point the way toward a new approach to high quality education in developing countries. We are guided in this journey by our strong belief in the power of collaboration, interdisciplinary thinking, and risk-taking, and are seeking like-minded individuals who are excited to join the founding team that will imagine and build a 21st century liberal arts and professional graduate education in Vietnam.

Within this dynamic, start-up setting, the FSPPM builds upon a two-decade long initiative of Harvard University to incubate a center of public policy research and teaching in Ho Chi Minh City, the Fulbright Economics Teaching Program (FETP). Like Fulbright today, FETP itself was a pioneering institution in both teaching and research. FETP launched Vietnam’s first masters in public policy program (MPP) in 2008. Its policy-oriented research contributed meaningfully to the national policy discourse. In the fall of 2016, Harvard transferred the people and programs of FETP to Fulbright. These unique intellectual assets are now the nucleus of the FSPPM, Fulbright’s first academic unit.

Among FSPPM’s activities are a fulltime Masters in Public Policy (MPP) program; the Vietnam Executive Leadership Program (VELP), a policy dialog initiative for senior Vietnamese government officials; and the Grand Challenges Initiative, a research program focused on critical policy challenges facing Vietnam such as climate change, environmental sustainability, and cyber security.

Fulbright’s Board of Trustees has adopted an ambitious mandate for FSPPM to become an internationally recognized graduate professional school that prepares students for positions of leadership in all sectors of society and contribute to the resolution of the grand challenges facing Vietnam, the region, and the world through policy engagement, analysis, and research.

Qualifications and How to Apply

Candidates will ideally take up the position, which is based in Ho Chi Minh City, by the Fall of 2018, though the starting date is subject to negotiation. Remuneration and benefits will be internationally competitive. A PhD (or equivalent terminal degree) in a policy-relevant field is required, though candidates in their final stage of PhD candidacy will also be considered. Relevant teaching and research experience, and a track record of interest in policy issues, are desired.

Experience or interest in Vietnam and Southeast Asia will also be appreciated. Vietnamese language skills are valuable, but not required. Applicants are invited to send a letter of interest, a CV and the names of three professional references to jobs.fsppm@fuv.edu.vn. Inquiries are welcome. The positions will remain open until filled; please apply by March 31, 2018 for fullest consideration.

FULL-TIME TRANSLATOR AND INTERPRETER (CLOSED)

FUV is seeking a full-time translator and interpreter for the Fulbright School of Public Policy and Management.

WHO WE ARE

We’re a small team of educational innovators, with deep roots in Vietnam, strong political and financial backing, and connections to educational institutions around the world. We believe in the power of collaboration, transdisciplinary thinking, and risk- taking; and we understand that effective education requires putting students at the center.

WHAT WE ARE DOING

We are embarking on the project of a lifetime: building a new, non-profit university in Ho Chi Minh City. With substantial financial support from the US State Department, USAID, and a variety of private donors, we are designing and building Fulbright University Vietnam’s flagship undergraduate program: a 21st century liberal education that spans engineering and the liberal arts and sciences. We’re starting from scratch, with the goal of creating an institution that can transform the lives of young people, address the pressing needs of Vietnamese society, and ultimately point the way toward a new approach to high quality education in developing countries. You can learn more about our project at www.tuiv.org.

THE OPPORTUNITY
This is a once-in- a-lifetime chance to be part of imagining a new approach to education — including both engineering, and the traditional liberal arts and sciences — from the ground up. If we throw out assumptions about curriculum, about disciplinary silos, about faculty and student roles, and about the relationship between the institution and the community, what might we build together? If we deeply care about developing students as whole people, kindling their curiosity, and preparing them to lead in an uncertain world, what kind of experience might we create?

THE POSITION
