We invite applications from highly qualified candidates for a full-time, non-tenure track faculty position with the title of Assistant Teaching Professor in Nanomedicine. This position has significant opportunity for career advancement.


Primary responsibilities involve teaching up to five sections per year of nanomedicine and related courses for life, physical and health sciences, and engineering students, at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Additional duties may include oversight of course and associated laboratory curricula, planning and developing instructional programs and materials, evaluation of curricula, and moderate departmental and College service. Candidates are expected to have high aptitude and interest in teaching, and coordinate with other instructors to monitor student progress and assist students when necessary.

  • Applicants must have a Ph.D. or equivalent in nanomedicine, life sciences or other closely related discipline by the appointment start date.
  • Demonstrated excellence in teaching lecture courses; demonstrated excellence in teaching nanomedicine related courses is preferred.
  • Excellent communication, collaboration, and leadership skills.
  • Northeastern is committed to building a diverse faculty who are committed to teaching and working in a multicultural environment. Candidates must have excellence in, or a demonstrated commitment to, working with diverse student populations and/or in a culturally diverse work and educational environment.
  • Where appropriate, candidates are strongly encouraged to highlight prior achievements working with members of underrepresented groups.

Documents to Submit:

  • Curriculum vitae (CV)
  • Teaching philosophy statement
  • Diversity and Inclusion statement
  • List of three references

Teaching statement:

Please summarize your past instructional and mentorship experiences, your pedagogical philosophy, your plans/goals for teaching in the College of Science (including existing and proposed courses), and your strategies for teaching and mentoring a diverse cohort of graduate students.

Diversity statement:

Please provide a statement describing a time when you altered or changed your approach to research, teaching, or service because of the diversity of the group you were working with or your awareness of marginalized populations. What changes did you make, and what did you learn from this situation? We are interested in how you respond to such situations, not the identities of the people involved, so please only disclose what you are comfortable with. Your statement should demonstrate an understanding of the barriers facing individuals from groups marginalized in your field and be in alignment with Northeastern's mission to reflect the diversity of the societies in which it maintains campuses and to meet the educational needs and interests of its diverse population. Some faculty candidates may not have substantial past experience. If that is the case, we recommend focusing in your statement on the types of activities you think could be useful.
