KUWAIT COLLEGE OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY (KCST) is a newly established private university in Kuwait, fully accredited by the nation’s Ministry of Higher Education/PUC, offering degrees in Computer Science, Computer Engineering and Electronic and Communications Engineering.

Thus, our science and engineering curricula have been planned to contain significant amounts of exposure to these disciplines.

We are now looking for two academics with doctoral degrees and proven teaching experience. For the position in Introductory Economics and Accounting, teaching experience in both Economics (introductory level) and Accounting is a must.

  • A PhD degree from a reputable university with English as the language of instruction
  • A track record in undergraduate teaching with English as the language of instruction
  • A publications record proportional to the length of teaching experience
  • Professional certification in Accounting as an advantage
  • Experience in the supervision of students’ projects
  • Work experience in the Middle East and acute awareness of cross-cultural differences in the worlds of teaching and learning are also advantages
