I am a full prof in the humanities at a small liberal arts college in rural America. I am relishing my sabbatical in a European country with a flourishing economy and appealing culture. I do not want to return home. I travel abroad every summer and so do not attribute my thoughts about a major move to reverse culture shock. I mainly want to stay for the benefit of my children where here they can get a better education and have better opportunities.
There are currently no jobs in my field that I have seen advertised in the country where we are living. I have also been putting the word out to my academic contacts here that I want to stay, but so far I haven't heard about any job opportunities.
I'm not certain I could compete for jobs when they come up given that I have devoted my career thus far to teaching and service, and I'm not a newly minted PhD. I have pubs and am doing research, but not on the level of what I'd have had I been at a research institution all these years. While I'm passionate about teaching, I'm far from retirement age and am prepared to make a career change.
How can I channel my training and work experience to something that would be of interest to a European employer (or an employer at a better city in the US to at least get us out of our rural community)?
