The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Tufts University is conducting an ongoing search for a highly-qualified, enthusiastic half-time lecturer. We invite applications from individuals who are interested in teaching multiple courses across the electrical engineering curriculum including (but not limited to) probability and statistics, communication systems, semiconductor devices, control systems, and introductory analog circuits. Student advising at the master's level will also be expected. Strong preference is given to applicants with a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering.
This is a non-tenure-track position. 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 (SOE) distinguishes itself by the interdisciplinary focus and integrative nature of its engineering education and research programs, within the intellectually rich environment of both a "Research I" university and a top-ranked undergraduate institution. The past ten years have been a period of extraordinary growth for SOE at Tufts, with recruitment of over half of its current tenured and tenure-track faculty members and a more than three-fold increase in research productivity. Tufts offers the best of a liberal arts college atmosphere, coupled with the intellectual and technological resources of a major research university. Home to seven graduate and professional schools across three campuses, Tufts University prides itself on its culture of cross-school partnerships. Located on Tufts' Medford/Somerville campus, only six miles from historic downtown Boston, SOE faculty members have extensive opportunities for academic and industrial collaboration, as well as participation in the rich intellectual life of the region.
The ideal Lecturer candidate will possess prior teaching experience at both the undergraduate and graduate levels and have an engaging teaching style. The candidate must have a strong commitment to teaching and mentoring.
Strong preference is given to applicants with a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering.
