Resolved Question: Is it possible to move to
I currently live in the USA. I would like to experience living in
one of Africa countries. I am interested in Gabon and I would like having an academic career
at the University of Omar Bongo (not a professor, but just an entry level position). I Hold a master's degree and I am currently
working on my PhD. I am not looking for a highly paid job, but just enough
to survive in Gabon. I like just to have a stable position that
can help me with my daily expenses (just enough for living in Gabon). The most important thing for me is to meet Gabonese people and experience life there. Please, if you have any info regarding this matter I would appreciate your help?
