language of instruction. Salary and rank are according to scale based
on qualifications and professional experience. Renewal of an

performance. For expatriates, housing, annual round-trip air travel
for appointee and accompanying family, plus schooling for up to two
children are included. In view of AUC's protocol agreement with the
Egyptian Government, which requires specific proportions of Egyptian,
