INCARICHI DI INSEGNAMENTO ALL’ESTERO
per laureati in materie classiche, storia e archeologia
Questo è un numero del tutto eccezionale perché vi presento ben sette opportunità di lavoro all’estero per laureati in Materie Classiche, Storia e Archeologia. I paesi che offrono tali incarichi sono Stati Uniti e Canada. I bandi di concorso sono completi di dettagli e informazioni utili per gli interessati, fra cui gli indirizzi ai quali rivolgersi per ulteriori informazioni, tutte le modalità da seguire, nonché le date di scadenza di ciascuno dei bandi.
Molto interessante, perché è la prima volta che capita di notare una cosa del genere, è la particolarità del bando di concorso relativo al Bryn Mawr College, che si trova nella città di Philadelphia, in quanto riguarda esclusivamente laureati di sesso femminile. Caso davvero unico che mi capita di notare da quando mi occupo di queste offerte di lavoro.
Ovviamente requisito fondamentale è la buona conoscenza della lingua inglese.
