At VIS, we recognize that to prepare students for our increasingly complex and interconnected world, we must provide them with new ways of thinking and new ways of collaborating in solving our most pressing global issues. As such, our mission goes far beyond preparing students for good universities and prosperous careers; we want to create globally-minded and critical-thinking innovators ready to re-shape the world for the better.

Please note: We are recruiting in a field where the time factor is critical to the success of our recruitment process; so we reserve the right to appoint a candidate who seems to be the perfect fit before the application deadline.
