Vacancies for Research Associates and Teachers at The Royal Academy (Bhutan)

  December 16th 2016


Greetings from the Kingdom of Bhutan!

The Royal Academy is a visionary initiative of His Majesty The King that recognizes the critical role of education in enriching the lives of people & society; nurturing successive generations of leaders; narrowing emerging economic & social disparities; and building a strong, secure and prosperous nation.

Comprising an Education Research Centre, a Teacher Development Centre and a co-educational residential School (Grades VII to XII at full capacity), The Royal Academy is guided by a philosophy that focuses on the holistic development of individuals.  The aim is to help them to actualise their innate potential across all areas of development – cerebral, physical, social, emotional and spiritual – and, in the process, enabling them to become exceptional leaders and good human beings.

In view of the above, The Royal Academy is putting together a team of Research Associates (up to nine vacancies) who will be responsible for developing & evolving a unique curriculum for students, a design & framework for assessing their learning and a system for validating the assessment process along with programmes & activities for the professional development of teachers. Furthermore, we are strengthening our team of Teachers (up to six vacancies) who will be responsible for planning, organising, and delivering instructional programmes in their area of expertise to support the development of students. They will also be responsible for undertaking research, and/or teacher development, and pastoral activities to support achievement of the Academy’s vision and philosophy

Further information about the vacancies and the application process as well as access to the Stage I Application Form can be viewed by clicking on the following link to our website.

It may be noted that though it is preferable that the Research Associates should be willing to live in & work from our campus in Paro, Bhutan, we are also happy to receive applications from exceptional candidates who are unable to relocate in case it is felt that they could contribute effectively from their own homes, particularly in this day & age where technology connects us all. However, the Teachers will have to work in our campus in Paro, Bhutan.

I would be grateful if you could circulate information about these vacancies through the International Office at the University of Porto so that we could benefit from their participation in our application process leading up to a potential employment opportunity.

In case you have any queries, please feel free to reach out to me.

Warm regards,

Arun Kapur
Director, The Royal Academy
