Seeking Applicants for Part-time Lecturer of Graduate-level Design Course

July 28, 2017


The Department of Civil Engineering at the Johns Hopkins University seeks a Part-time Lecturer to develop and teach a new Master’s-level design course to be offered annually, starting in the Spring 2018 semester. The intent of the course is to expose graduate students to design tools, technology and concepts that will prepare them for leadership positions in top engineering companies. Students in the course will gain experience integrating fundamental analytical skills in the context of design. While the successful candidate will be expected to coordinate this course with the Department curriculum, they will also enjoy significant flexibility in developing a new course that suits their skills and interests. Requirements for the position include a master’s degree in civil engineering or related, and a minimum of 5 years experience in a design environment. Teaching experience is valued but not required. Compensation for offering a semester-long course is typically $8,000; however, extra funds may be negotiated in special circumstances (e.g., new course development time, travel to campus for instructors living outside the Baltimore metro area). Candidates should submit a CV or resume, with a cover letter that contains a brief summary of ideas for the proposed course. Applications must be made on-line at
