A generous Fellowship is available to visit the Department of Computer
Science and Software Engineering at the University of Canterbury, in
Christchurch (New Zealand) on a short-term basis. The Fellow is expected to
teach into one or more Software Engineering courses in Semester 1 (February
to June) or Semester 2 (July to November) 2017. 

Semester 1 courses:
- Software Engineering I - SENG201
- Software Engineering II - SENG301
- Software Engineering Group Project - SENG302

Semester 2 courses:
- Software Engineering Project Workshop - SENG202
- Software Engineering Group Project - SENG302
- Web Computing Architectures - SENG365

The fellowship aims at "distinguished international academics" (post-PhD,
such as academics at the level of assistant/associate/full professor at
their home institution). The fellowship pays for two return international
airfares (for you and a partner or family member), accommodation (which is
organized for you), and an allowance of (currently) $100 per day.

Courses in Semester 1 will have lectures from 20 February to 2 June. Courses
in Semester 2 will have lectures from 17 July to 20 October. Each semester
is followed by an exam period. Allowing for preparation before the course
and marking afterwards, the Fellowship is likely to run from early February
to end of June (Semester 1) or 3 July to 3 November (Semester 2), although
this is negotiable. The responsibilities vary per course, but usually
involve three to six lectures per week, labs, and setting and marking
assessment. Lecturers are supported by teaching assistants.

There would be plenty of time for other interests, such as interacting with
our Software Engineering Research and Applications Lab or other research
groups in the department, and of course seeing our beautiful country.
