Vacancies at An-Najah University in Nablus

March 6, 2008
Subject: More vacancies at An-Najah University Nablus
From: PLO Mission – Washington, DC

Dear All,

An-Najah National University is having difficulties finding teaching staff who are willing to live and work in the besieged city of Nablus.  The closure regime in the form of Israeli military checkpoints  surrounding Nablus deters many people from coming to work here, and, as you can see from the list of short-fall subjects below, the University is finding it difficult to attract Faculty members. Yet, many rewarding, professional opportunities exist and we would like to invite applications from interested people overseas, as well as local. The language of tuition is English.

The University is able to offer a salary and accommodation to successful applicants. Full details of the terms and conditions can be requested from the Public Relations Department,
