Administrative Faculty Position of Head Librarian – Jakarta, Indonesia

 

Job ID:  INDLIB 2014

 

Posted Date:  December 6, 2013

 

Institution:  Covenant College

 

Location:  Potential new Covenant campus in Jakarta, Indonesia

 

Covenant College, an agency of the Presbyterian Church in America and a Christian college emphasizing the liberal arts in the Reformed and Presbyterian tradition, is assisting with the selection of faculty members for the International Teachers College at Universitas Pelita Harapan (ITC@UPH) in Jakarta, Indonesia. Covenant invites applications for a position in the Library Department beginning in the 2014-2015 academic year.

 

Covenant is partnering with an educational foundation in Indonesia to help start this new campus, and is also continuing discussions with that foundation with the hope of initiating a branch campus in the fall of 2015. If successful, the branch campus would seek to undertake and continue the work that is beginning with this effort. The numeric growth of the Christian church in Asia, an increased interest in Christian education, and new freedoms in a variety of countries combine to make this a unique time and possibility.

Prior experience in international and/or cross-cultural settings is a plus, but not required.
