The benefits to the student body would complement Habib University’s commitment to empowering talented learners to become leaders in improving Pakistan and the world. Similarly, the general goals of GSCP are similar to those of many liberal arts institutions (especially in United States). As a prestigious initiative, the Habib GSCP is designed to prepare Habib University students for advanced postgraduate academic studies and research. The program also incentivizes faculty to engage Tehqiq scholars (name given to students enrolled in GSCP) in their own research as an asset to their academic projects while simultaneously guiding Tehqiq (meaning research) students in constructing their own research agendas.
The Senior Manager / Assistant Director will provide strategic leadership, programming, and accountability that support student success and co-curricular activities of the program.

Applicants for this position will demonstrate commitment to academic quality and rigor and to the success of the students in the program, and willingness to enhance the initiative by providing support to the Student Recruitment and Admissions and Resource Development offices. Due to the nature of the role, the incumbent will need to understand the University’s philosophy and academic programs. Candidates who show initiative, are self-starters, and are familiar with liberal arts universities will be preferred.
