About Northeastern: Founded in 1898, Northeastern is a global research university and a world leader in experiential learning. The same commitment to connecting with the world drives our use-inspired research enterprise. The university offers a comprehensive range of undergraduate and graduate programs leading to degrees through the doctorate in nine colleges and schools. Our campuses in Charlotte, N.C., San Francisco, Seattle, and Toronto are regional platforms for undergraduate and graduate learning and collaborative research. Northeastern pursues advanced research in security and materials at the Innovation Campus in Burlington, Massachusetts, and in coastal sustainability at the Marine Science Center in Nahant, Massachusetts.
About the Opportunity: The Three Seas Program at Northeastern University is seeking part-time instructors to teach courses in our marine science curriculum. Class may be taught in three locations: Northeastern University's Marine Science Center in Nahant, MA, Smithsonian's Tropical Research Institution in Bocas del Toro, Panama, and University of Washington's Friday Harbor Labs on San Juan Island, Washington. Courses run in either semester long format, or two-week block format depending on location. See https://cos.northeastern.edu/mes/academics/threeseas/ for a complete listing of courses offered. In addition to presenting course material in lecture, instructors are also required to present an immersive lab or field component. A teaching assistant may be assigned to the course to assist with lab/field activities as well as with grading, but it is the ultimate responsibility of the instructor to submit grades in a timely manner.
Qualifications: PhD in Marine Science, Biology or appropriate discipline. Candidates with prior teaching experience are preferred, as are candidates with an active research program in the subject matter.
Additional Information: Northeastern University is an equal opportunity employer, seeking to recruit and support a broadly diverse community of faculty and staff. Northeastern values and celebrates diversity in all its forms and strives to foster an inclusive culture built on respect that affirms inter-group relations and builds cohesion.
