Full-time LecturerWhy the American University of Iraq – Baghdad?
Opening its doors in October 2019, the new American University of Iraq – Baghdad (AUIB) will start offering courses in its College of Arts & Sciences in 2020. AUIB began as a dream of influential individuals in Iraqi and United States business, industry and government who want to see a world-class institution of higher learning established in the city, reminiscent of the days when Baghdad was an educational mecca and flourishing capital of the Muslim world.

The location of AUIB is centered around the magnificent Al-Faw Palace, near the airport. The main palace and many of the smaller palaces/structures are being completely renovated and will become home to the new AUIB. There will be a grand library, residence halls for faculty and students, cafes and coffee houses, and athletic facilities. AUIB will be a beautiful campus attracting students, faculty and staff from throughout the world. We invite you to join us in this exciting new venture.
