The Department of Civil and Systems Engineering (CaSE) at the Johns Hopkins University seeks applicants for a full-time teaching position (Lecturer) in the area of systems engineering. This position will serve a key role in the department’s new Bachelors, Masters, and PhD programs in systems engineering and the growing Center for Systems Science and Engineering (JHU CSSE). More experienced candidates may be considered for a Senior Lecturer position.
This is a career-oriented, renewable appointment that is responsible for the development and delivery of undergraduate and graduate courses to students majoring in Systems Engineering and/or Civil Engineering. Some potential areas for instruction include data sciences, optimization, network modeling, risk analysis, operations research, decision analytics, or courses at the intersection of foundational and applied systems engineering. Our curriculum aims to provide both fundamental and theoretical courses mixed with hands-on case studies motivated by real-world applications, including those related to Grand Societal Challenges identified by the department in areas of Resilient Cities, Future Energy Infrastructure, Decision-Making and Health, Human Safety and Security, and Space Exploration and Habitation. These characteristics of the department have made systems engineering at Johns Hopkins a unique and exciting program.
The successful candidate will be expected to help articulate the role of systems engineering in undergraduate and graduate education. Teaching faculty members are encouraged to engage in departmental and university service and may have advising responsibilities. In particular, this position is likely to include some advising of student groups and administrative responsibilities related to the coordination of the ABET accreditation process for systems engineering. Such activities will offset some of the teaching responsibilities of the position. The Whiting School of Engineering has a well-established non-tenure track career path for full-time teaching faculty culminating in the rank of Teaching Professor.
The CaSE Department is dedicated to fostering an inclusive, diverse, and welcoming environment for faculty, staff, and students. We recognize the value and experience of individuals of different backgrounds, and are engaged in improving and sustaining equity throughout our community. Accordingly, the Department seeks candidates who can contribute to equity, diversity and inclusion through service, mentorship, teaching and scholarship.
Application Instructions: Applicants should apply online at https://apply.interfolio.com/116381 . Please include a cover letter and a CV and, optionally, a brief teaching portfolio including (sample) course evaluations from any classes taught by the applicant. While candidates who complete their applications by November 30, 2022 will receive full consideration, the Department will consider exceptional applicants until the position is filled.
Equal Opportunity Statement: The Johns Hopkins University is committed to equal opportunity for its faculty, staff, and students. To that end, the university does not discriminate on the basis of sex, gender, marital status, pregnancy, race, color, ethnicity, national origin, age, disability, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, veteran status or other legally protected characteristic. The university is committed to providing qualified individuals access to all academic and employment programs, benefits and activities on the basis of demonstrated ability, performance and merit without regard to personal factors that are irrelevant to the program involved.
Qualifications: Applicants for the position must have a Ph.D. degree in Systems Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Operations Research, Applied Math, Computer Science, Civil Engineering or closely related fields. Related professional experience is considered a plus. Successful applicants must also have demonstrated excellence in, and commitment to, teaching, and have excellent communication skills.
For more than 140 years later, Johns Hopkins remains a world leader in both teaching and research, with nine academic divisions—the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, the Whiting School of Engineering, the Bloomberg School of Public Health, the Carey Business School, the Peabody Institute, the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies, and the schools of Medicine, Nursing, and Education—plus the Applied Physics Laboratory, a nonacademic division that supports national security and pursues space science, exploration of the solar system, and other civilian research and development. https://www.jhu.edu/assets/uploads/2018/12/johnshopkinsfactbook.pdf
