Hi @Mr.HdLR, sure!
Uni work is tricky and you best start with the University you went to (if you left on good terms) to get the foot in the door. Once you have a lecturing gig somewhere, it’s relatively easy to get other lecturing or speaking engagements at other academic institutions. What worked well for me was to keep in touch with my Uni department, while developing expertise in my ‘real’ work, and offering to talk about it to new students - Uni’s love having their Alumnis talk about how what they learned at Uni was relevant for their job…
I can highly recommend the EU Commission gig to anyone who has some form of relevant expertise: https://ec.europa.eu/info/funding-tenders/become-expert-commission_en
I was lucky and a friend I had met in Juba many years ago now leads this program and was looking for people with my skillset, so she reached out to me. I recently talked to her and understand that they’re still growing their pool, and AFAIK there’s only one introduction course a year (which you need to have in order to get tasked), and it takes place around May/June, so now would be a good time to sign up
