The mission of our programs is to prepare students to be successful in IT applications and management positions through a balanced curriculum that combines technical skills training with an understanding of business fundamentals and strategic thinking regarding IT innovation. Our undergraduate curriculum focuses on a broad foundation of hands-on technical skills, whereas the MPS in Informatics highlights key IT management and strategic thinking skills needed in higher level positions within the organization.
Our programs are deeply rooted in experiential learning that is closely linked to professional applications in the work force. This prepares the students with the opportunity to apply classroom learnings to professional domains or disciplines (e.g. business, marketing, research).
The position offering is a full-time, non-tenure track, one-year renewable appointment as an Assistant Teaching Professor. The candidate will be expected to teach as a content expert in Information Technology, with particular expertise in networking, cloud computing and infrastructure. Software development and/or Database experience is also desired.
The candidate is further expected to advance work in close collaboration with other Faculty, Northeastern campus locations outside of Boston, and other departments such as Academic Quality Assessment, Online Experiential Learning, Marketing, Enrollment, and Admissions to propel the program forward.
The position is based in Boston, Massachusetts; however, there is a possibility of traveling periodically throughout the year to our Northeastern campus locations outside of Boston, including Seattle, WA, Charlotte, NC, and other locations (the College would cover travel and lodging costs). Courses are taught in multiple formats including online, hybrid and the traditional classroom. Faculty enjoy a collegial work environment that allows for work-life balance, and are expected to be available to students, whether in-person or online. Opportunities exist for additional compensation through other non-teaching activities. Faculty contribute to the College’s mission through teaching, service and scholarship.
This is a non-tenure track joint undergraduate and graduate appointment. Up to 50% of the candidate’s time will be allocated towards teaching at both undergraduate and graduate levels (teaching load is subject to periodic reviews by the undergraduate and graduate units and the college); actual course load may vary with other responsibilities.
