The Morrissey College of Arts and Sciences at Boston College invites applications for the position of Core Visiting Assistant Professor/Core Renewal Fellow in Science and Technology Studies. The appointment for this one-year visiting assistant professorship will be for the 2017–2018 academic year. Salary is competitive, and the position is potentially renewable. As a Jesuit, Catholic institution, Boston College requires all students to complete a fifteen-course liberal arts Core Curriculum as the foundation of their undergraduate education. Core Visiting Assistant Professors will teach signature courses in the Core. Developed for first-year students, these interdisciplinary Complex Problems and Enduring Questions courses are part of an ongoing revitalization of the Core Curriculum. You can learn more about BC’s Core Renewal here: http://www.bc.edu/core.

In one semester the visiting assistant professor will teach project-based lab sections associated with a Complex Problems course, “STEM in Context: Culture, Institutions, Ethics,” co-taught by faculty from History and Biology. In the other semester, he/she will teach two courses: an Enduring Questions course (paired with a second course designed with another Core visiting professor from Environmental Studies) and an elective in his/her field.

Qualifications

Ph.D. required and should be conferred between August 1, 2014 and August 1, 2017.

Deadline:  March 1, 2017

Please submit a letter of application, CV, an article-length writing sample, three letters of reference, and a teaching statement.
