Worcester, MA, US
WPI’s Interdisciplinary and Global Studies Division (IGSD) and First Year Seminar Program jointly seek three full-time Teaching Faculty at the Assistant level. Two of these positions will serve in the IGSD’s Global Program and one will be split between the First Year Program and IGSD. All positions are continuing, non-tenure track, 9-month appointments. For the Global Program, we seek faculty whose teaching, advising, and scholarly expertise will support WPIs undergraduate society-technology project requirement. Over half of WPI students complete at least one project away from campus, typically a nine-credit-hour project that confronts an open-ended problem at the interface between society and technology. Project topics are proposed by agencies and organizations in the US and around the world, and typically involve issues such as environment and energy, appropriate technology, education, community and/or sustainable development. Individuals with a PhD in International Studies or Development, Anthropology, Geography, History, Psychology, Sociology, Politics, Education, Environmental and Sustainability Studies, or a related field with interest and experience in Latin America and/or China/East Asia will receive preference.
