Boston University's Metropolitan College seeks a dynamic and creative faculty member with expertise in fields related to criminal justice, urban planning, informatics, and spatial data analysis to join its nationally recognized Department of Applied Social Sciences (http://www.bu.edu/met/academic-community/departments/applied-social-sciences/), starting July 1, 2017. The Department is a leader in providing undergraduate and graduate education in the applied social sciences offered in flexible delivery formats including face-to-face, blended, and online.
Responsibilities: Faculty duties include teaching up to six courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels, including blended and online courses, conducting active research, participation in course and curriculum development, mentoring part-time faculty and students, as well as providing service to the department, college and the university. This is a full-time, non-tenure track appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor, with a 2-5 year renewable contract.
The successful candidate must hold a terminal degree in criminal justice, urban planning, or a closely related discipline and have demonstrated success in designing and teaching graduate and undergraduate-level courses. Experience in online and blended formats is a plus. Candidates should show promise in establishing a funded-research and publication track, and have experience in quantitative/mixed methods research that readily informs scholarly discourse and practice in the field. Those with additional competence in economic and spatial data analysis are strongly encouraged to apply. We also welcome applications from candidates with professional and industry experience in addition to the terminal degree.
Boston University is no small operation. With over 33,000 undergraduate and graduate students from more than 140 countries, 10,000 faculty and staff, 16 schools and colleges, and 250 fields of study, our two campuses are always humming.
