Teaching Opportunities at UWC Mahindra College

UWC Mahindra College is a pre-university residential college to 250 students aged 16 to 19 representing more than 80 countries and with 28 faculty members from around the world. The college offers the globally recognised International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme for two years. Resting in the 175-acre biodiversity reserve, our campus is located 40 km outside of Pune amidst the greater Western Ghats – one of world’s biodiversity hotspots.

The college is one of the 18 UWC schools and colleges located on five continents. With over 60,000 alumni from more than 160+ countries, the UWC schools and colleges are united by the mission of making “education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future.”

Community living is at the core of the UWC experience for students, faculty and staff. All full-time faculty are residential and participate actively in the broader life of the community. At the college, we enjoy and promote a culture of collaboration and engagement, and everyone has a voice in how the community functions. Most of our faculty live on campus and share a close relationship with students as teachers, mentors, advisors, and house parents. Those who live off-campus are just as engaged in the community: sharing meals in the dining hall, interacting with students, and participating in various campus activities.

Being a residential campus, the college offers a wide array of recreational opportunities. For nature enthusiasts, the biodiversity reserve offers rich wildlife and a serene living environment. Quite often, faculty step out for hiking, kayaking, and bike rides in the beautiful Mulshi Valley. For city lovers, our proximity to Pune provides an opportunity to indulge in the vibrant city life and cultural activities.

Working at UWC Mahindra College means that you believe in the promise of a better world. If you you want to educate the brightest, boldest, most caring and ambitious minds and hearts from around the globe and be part of a community of learners and supporters- please join us. Whether you teach, maintain the campus, or work in our offices, you are recognized for your personal talents and skills and become part of a movement to educate for a more peaceful and sustainable future. UWC Mahindra College values candidates who are drawn to the particular educational experience and mission of the United World Colleges. All full-time faculty are residential and participate actively in the broader life of the community, including in our Triveni and residential programs.

We welcome applications from educators who share our vision and wish to contribute to UWC Mahindra College’s unique learning community.
