Members of Oxbridge Academic Programs' Faculty provide exceptional learning experiences for every student on our summer programs in the UK, USA, and France, and Spain. Faculty write their own detailed syllabi, based on their expertise of the subject matter while retaining enough flexibility to mold their course to their students' unique interests. Faculty must also be able to work as part of a team to form the rich, diverse, and welcoming academic communities that define Oxbridge; and to act as role models to whom our students aspire. We hire locally - our faculty must already be based in the city that they are applying to teach in.

  • Part-time (approximately 27 hours per week) while the program is in session.
  • Must be flexible while the program is operational - to include weekend or holiday work.

    Essential Functions:

    • Devise a syllabus and a budget for, and teach, either a Major class, which meets six (6) mornings a week, from 9:00 am till 12:30 pm and/or a Minor class, which meets three (3) afternoons a week, from 2:00 pm till 4:00 pm, for the duration of the program.
    • Accompany the class on all field trips conducted during class-time.
    • Teach two "Major Mixers" (the same class, twice) on one specific morning of the program.
    • Submit letter grades and short reports for all students in the class at the end of the program, as well as course descriptions for the Major and/or Minor class(es).
    • Attend once-weekly Faculty Meetings.
    • Assist on Arrival and Departure Days.
    • Assist with the supervision of Study Hall on at least one evening during the program.
