The Whiting School of Engineering at Johns Hopkins University seeks applicants for a full-time teaching position (Lecturer) in the area of systems engineering to be part of the teaching faculty in the department of Civil and Systems Engineering (CaSE). This position will serve a key role in the department's new program in Systems Engineering and the growing Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE). More experienced candidates may be considered for a Senior Lecturer position.
This is a career-oriented, renewable appointment that is responsible for the development and delivery of undergraduate and graduate courses to those majoring in Civil and/or Systems Engineering. Some potential areas for instruction could include: data sciences, mathematical modeling, risk analysis, network modeling, optimization, or any course at the intersection of systems engineering and civil infrastructure. The Whiting School of Engineering has a well-established non-tenure track career path for full-time teaching faculty culminating in the rank of Teaching Professor.
The successful candidate will be expected to help articulate the role of systems engineering in undergraduate and graduate education, particularly in the context of a department that broadly covers the areas of systems, structures, and mechanics of materials. See the department website for more information (case.wse.jhu.edu). Teaching faculty members are encouraged to engage in departmental and university service and may have advising responsibilities. In particular, this position is likely to include some administrative responsibilities related to oversight of our full-time M.S. degree program in Systems Engineering and to coordination of the ABET accreditation process for Systems Engineering. Such activities will offset some of the teaching responsibilities of the position.
Applicants for the position must have a Ph.D. degree in Systems Engineering or a closely related field. Related professional experience is considered a plus. Successful applicants must also have demonstrated excellence in, and commitment to, teaching, and have excellent communication skills.
Please include a cover letter and a CV and, optionally, a brief teaching portfolio including (sample) course evaluations from any classes taught by the applicant. While candidates who complete their applications by January 15, 2021 will receive full consideration, the Department will consider exceptional applicants at any time.
