(Persia Digest) – The President of Tehran University has announced that Javad Zarif will be joining its faculty.
Speaking about FM Zarif’s request to join Tehran University Faculty, Mahmoud Nili-Ahmadabadi said: “This has been approved by the recruitment committee, but he has not started work yet. There is great competition for this job and we do not employ or sack people purely because they hold high office. We base our criteria on the individual’s academic activities.”
Persia Digest (PD) reports that FM Javad Zarif has been a visiting professor at the Foreign Ministry’ Faculty of International Relations in Iran and the Faculty of Law and Political Science at Tehran University.
Zarif holds a BSc and MSc in International Relations from San Francisco State University and an MSc in International Studies and PhD in Law and International Relations from Denver University.
He has mentioned in a few interviews that he will return to teaching after completing his mission as the Foreign Minister of Iran.
