About the Opportunity:
Assistant or Associate Teaching Professor sought to teach full time in the Roux Maine Biotechnology Professional Science Master's (PSM). This position is located at the Northeastern University Portland Campus. The Roux Maine Professional Master of Science (PSM) in Biotechnology degree program is designed to allow students to pursue advanced training and excel in bioscience while simultaneously developing highly valued business. Building on the Northeastern Boston PSM, the Roux Maine Biotechnology degree is characterized by instruction in advanced bioscience or mathematics, business courses, and a graduate co-op work experience.

The instructor will be responsible for teaching two core biotechnology courses (Cell Culture Processes for Biopharmaceutical Production, Molecular Cell Biology for Biotech, and/or Protein Chemistry) and lead the two laboratory courses (Basic Biotechnology Lab Skills and Biotechnology Applications Laboratory). Teaching responsibilities are subject to modification based on the program's need and at the Director of Life Sciences and Engineering Programs' discretion based upon time commitment of the service requirement. In addition to core teaching responsibilities, this individual will be responsible for a service component within their role, which will include acting as a liaison between the Roux biotechnology program and Maine based partner organizations, student advising, the creation of new graduate work or customized courses, maintaining updates to existing curriculum, and program administration. This unique position seeks to integrate professional practice into the classroom, specifically with respect to the Maine Bioscience ecosystem.

Teaching Responsibilities include the following: review and learning of key teaching points within existing instructor guides, and a willingness to support high-quality teaching and standards through: preparation of lectures based on course materials provided; effective facilitation of rich, respectful debates and discussions in an in-person or online class; timely review and grading of assignments with appropriate coaching and feedback to the students; consistent connection with students and their performance; adherence to Northeastern's policies.

Candidate must have a Ph.D. in Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Cellular Biology or related field by the appointment start date, and commitment to teaching excellence at the university level. Position requires excellent communication skills and the ability to work productively and successfully interact with students, faculty, staff and industry partners. Demonstrated industrial experience in the biotechnology industry desirable, but not required.
