The Sultanate of Oman?
We do not know any of the details yet, but it appears that he will get the job - or at least this is what he understood from the interview. He would be department head in physics at an university in Muscat, the capital of Oman. Once/IF he receives an offer, we will try to understand the contract and the region better. I am curious and hopeful that such a position will come with the freedom to build a good physics department, but Mihai seemed very worried and afraid to go to a 'military institution', which would involve teaching the mechanics of missiles and other related stuff.
Update: I still want to visit Oman or Dubai at some point, but Mihai never got the job offer. Maybe we'll visit next winter.
