About the Opportunity

The Department of Marine and Environmental Sciences at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts invites applications from qualified candidates for a full-time, non-tenure track teaching faculty position. Teaching courses that serve both our BS and MS degrees in Environmental and Sustainability Sciences as well as constituents from other programs (e.g., Public Policy and Urban Affairs, Civil and Environmental Engineering) interested in Marine and Environmental Sciences. Potential courses include Biostatistics and associated labs and recitations, Introduction to Data, as well as experiential courses (e.g., Experimental Design in Marine Ecology and Marine Spatial Planning) offered by the Three Seas Program at the Marine Science Center in Nahant MA.

We seek broadly trained candidates with expertise in biostatistics, teaching in R, experimental design and implementation. Areas of research focus could draw from natural resource management, environmental geoscience, sustainability sciences, conservation biology, environmental/land use planning, environmental water quality/restoration, or related fields. Candidates who can leverage their prior experience with government, industry or non-profit organizations to enhance experiential learning opportunities for students are strongly encouraged to apply. Given the diversity of our curriculum, we seek candidates that can offer both day and evening courses, as well as online.


The Assistant/Associate Teaching Professor will be the instructor of record for 6 courses that are either part of the current curriculum or are new courses developed by the candidate to serve the needs of our rapidly evolving and growing academic programs. The Department Chair, Associate Chair, Graduate Program Director and/or Faculty Heads of these programs will work with the candidate to identify new course needs. The Assistant/Associate Teaching Professor may be offered one course release per academic year to facilitate additional service requirements to the department. Service requirements may be assigned at the discretion of the Chair of the Department of Marine and Environmental Sciences and may include but are not limited to academic advising, program development, curriculum development, and committee appointments.


Applicants must have a Ph.D. in the environmental/sustainability sciences or another closely related discipline by the appointment start date, minimum 1 year experience teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in GIS using ESRI software, as well as excellent communication, collaboration, and leadership skills.
