Many faculty find this to be a geographic area rich in research opportunities.

Toward this end, we seek individuals engaged in visionary lines of teaching, research, and creative activity who will appreciate a culturally diverse community of students, faculty, and staff of women and men drawn from Qatar, the United States, South Asia, Europe, Africa, North and South America, and elsewhere.
