Teaching Faculty Position in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering


Johns Hopkins University’s Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering is seeking a creative and motivated individual for a teaching track faculty position at the lecturer, senior lecturer, associate teaching professor or teaching professor levels in the department.  The faculty member would help establish an innovative, high-quality graduate Master program in Nanobioengineering.  The individual selected will contribute to the department’s educational mission through teaching in the classroom and laboratory, course development, and mentoring talented undergraduate and graduate students.  The faculty member will also be responsible for assisting in the development and management of our growing Masters program. A doctorate in Chemical Engineering or a related field is required.

Johns Hopkins recently established the teaching professor track for those faculty primarily involved with education.  Criteria for promotion include excellence in teaching, educational publications, curriculum development, pedagogical innovation and program coordination.  It is a long-time contractual appointment, as opposed to a tenure track faculty position.  A position of senior lecturer requires teaching with distinction for no fewer than five years at a university similar to Johns Hopkins.  The titles of associate teaching professor and teaching professor requires a record of teaching experience and seniority commensurate with that of tenure-track associate professors and professors.

Candidates should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a statement of teaching philosophy and interests and a list of three references in a single PDF document to chembe@jhu.edu with the title “Teaching Faculty Search”.  Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. To ensure full consideration, applications should be submitted by February 28, 2014.

 The Department is committed to a diverse environment; women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.  The Johns Hopkins University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer and does not discriminate against any individual or group of individuals on the basis of age, color, disability, gender, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, veteran status or genetic information.
