The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Tufts University is conducting an ongoing search for highly-qualified, enthusiastic part-time lecturers. We invite applications from individuals who are interested in teaching courses in all areas of electrical engineering and computer engineering. This includes local industry experts who are interested in teaching advanced evening classes in cutting-edge new areas. Strong preference is given to applicants with a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or an appropriately related field.
These are non-tenure-track positions. The initial appointment term will be for the semester with the possibility of renewal contingent on annual performance review results.
The Electrical and Computer Engineering has grown significantly in the past decade. Located in the Boston area, the department benefits from outstanding undergraduate and graduate students, collaborative faculty, and cross-disciplinary research opportunities. Tufts University is one of the smallest universities ranked as a Research 1 university, and it offers the best of a liberal arts college atmosphere, coupled with the intellectual and technological resources of a major research university. Tufts University supports and encourages a culture of interdisciplinary research and there are numerous such opportunities within the School of Engineering, the School of Arts and Sciences, and through graduate and professional schools.
Tufts' School of Engineering distinguishes itself by the interdisciplinary focus and integrative nature of its engineering education within the intellectually rich environment of a research university. Located only six miles from historic downtown Boston, faculty members on the Tufts Medford/Somerville campus have extensive opportunities for academic and industrial collaboration as well as participation in the rich intellectual life of the area. The School of Engineering is in the midst of a period of exciting growth that has seen recruitment of outstanding new faculty, a quadrupling of funded research over the last ten years, addition of new laboratory space, an emphasis on building diversity in engineering, and major curricular initiatives at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Candidates are encouraged to demonstrate attention to diversity and inclusion as it relates to teaching, research, and scholarship throughout their application. We request that each application include the following materials: (a) a letter of application explaining the applicant's interest in the position, (b) a curriculum vitae, (c) a statement of teaching philosophy, (d) contact information for at least three reference letters, and (e) a supplement appropriate to the position in which the applicant is interested, (f) a sample of material developed for the classroom, such as a syllabus, a homework assignment, or a laboratory exercise.
