Job Vacancy: Instructor for Junior Resident Fellows Program in Cambodia

Duration: From July 01st to August 09th, 2019

Deadline of application: April 30th, 2019

The “Junior Resident Fellows Program” is an intensive 6-week study program for American, French and Cambodian undergraduates. It will take place from July 01st to August 09th, 2019 at the CKS Headquarters located in Wat Damnak, Siem Reap, and CKS Second Office in Phnom Penh for two weeks.

Brief Program Activities

The program is structured around two hourly interactive classroom sessions and select field trips to historical and cultural sites in and around Siem Reap and Phnom Penh. Field trips will also include visits to national and international NGOs. Classroom sessions will begin by briefly covering Cambodia’s early history before examining major social, political, economic and cultural changes since the country gained independence from France in the early 1950s. Particular attention will be paid to Cambodia’s recent past, and the ways in which the country is re-engaging with regional and international communities.

Fellows will also attend daily ‘survival’ Khmer language classes and conduct a small (10-15 page) personal project. Instructors are required to provide guidance and support for these projects. Outside of the classroom, in Siem and Phnom Penh, fellows will have the opportunity to interact with organizations working in the areas of development, education, democracy promotion, human rights and journalism. Total contact time is 45 hours; this does not include time spent on field trips.
