The Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering at Rutgers University–New Brunswick invites applications and nominations for a full-time, non-tenure track faculty position at the rank of Teaching Instructor or Assistant Teaching Professor beginning fall 2017.
This is an academic year appointment (nine-month) with the opportunity for summer compensation depending on course offerings and grant availability. The appointment will be for a period of one to three years, and renewable subject to enrollment needs, availability of funding and performance. It is a career-oriented position with the possibility of reappointment and promotion through the university’s teaching faculty track. The Department welcomes dynamic and engaging candidates who are dedicated to instructional innovation and can bring diverse intellectual, geographical, gender and ethnic perspectives to the work.
Primary duties will include teaching the undergraduate chemical engineering laboratory. The successful candidate will be responsible for overall maintenance and supervision of the laboratory, will train teaching and learning assistants, supervise student experimental work, guide student teamwork, evaluate student written and oral reports, assess student learning outcomes, and provide instruction on laboratory safety, experimental statistics and technical communication. The laboratory consists of over a dozen modern unit operations housed in a 2000 square feet facility. Other duties may include teaching additional core undergraduate courses, assisting with the development of interdisciplinary and industry partnerships, mentoring undergraduates, contributing to recruitment and outreach activities, applying for education grants, serving on internal committees, and sharing administrative responsibilities for the undergraduate program.
Minimum qualifications include a Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering or a closely related field and demonstrated evidence of effective teaching or convincing argument of future dedication and success in the art of teaching and student services.
