Open Rank - Assistant/Associate/Full Teaching Professor

About Northeastern:
Founded in 1898, Northeastern is a global research university and the recognized leader in experience-driven lifelong learning. Our world-renowned experiential approach empowers our students, faculty, alumni, and partners to create impact far beyond the confines of discipline, degree, and campus.

Our locations—in Boston; Charlotte, North Carolina; London; Portland, Maine; San Francisco; Seattle; Silicon Valley; Toronto; Vancouver; and the Massachusetts communities of Burlington and Nahant—are nodes in our growing global university system. Through this network, we expand opportunities for flexible, student-centered learning and collaborative, solutions-focused research.

Northeastern's comprehensive array of undergraduate and graduate programs— in a variety of on-campus and online formats—lead to degrees through the doctorate in nine colleges and schools. Among these, we offer more than 195 multi-discipline majors and degrees designed to prepare students for purposeful lives and careers.

About the Opportunity:
The School of Criminology and Criminal Justice (SCCJ) and the School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs (SPPUA) in the College of Social Sciences and Humanities at Northeastern University seek nominations and applications for an open rank non-tenure track teaching professor position in the area of research methods and statistics, with an expected start date of September 2021.

Successful candidates will have a strong commitment to and experience in undergraduate and graduate teaching, will have expertise in research methods and statistics, and will be familiar with policy-oriented research applications across a broad array of social sciences. We are particularly interested in those with experience integrating examples and applications that advance social justice and racial equity and reduce economic disparity. Responsibilities for this position include: teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in research methods and statistics in the Interdisciplinary Studies in Social Sciences and Humanities (INSH) curriculum (three courses per semester); research and teaching in the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice and the School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs; and service and professional development. This is an open rank, non-tenure track joint teaching professor position between the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice and the School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs, but is continuing and includes the possibility of promotion, as well as multi-year (3 year and 5 year) contracts.

The position will support the University's commitment to innovation in experiential learning, as well as the College's mission to integrate data and technology in the analysis of society, policy and governance. Candidates should have demonstrated experience with experiential learning in these areas, as well as a commitment to fostering diverse and inclusive environments, which is also central to a Northeastern University education.

A PhD in Criminal Justice, Public Policy, Statistics, or a related field is required by the appointment start date.
