Job Description

Northeastern CPS is seeking candidates for the role of Lead Faculty, a non-tenure-track Assistant Teaching Professor position, for one of its fastest growing master's degree programs: Commerce and Economic Development (CED). CED is a masters-level economic and finance degree program offering four concentrations: Economic Analysis, Financial Economics, Data Analytics, and Economic Entrepreneurship. Currently the program has nearly 150 students and is growing rapidly. From the Lead Faculty role, you will oversee the program, seeking to expand its reach, while working directly with faculty and students. The candidate should have a terminal degree in economics, finance or a related discipline, and ideally 5 - 10 years of experience in either academia or industry. The College of Professional Studies provides industry-aligned educational programs that are designed to advance individuals' careers and accommodate the complex lives of motivated learners. Offered in a variety of formats, our courses are taught by accomplished scholars and practitioners who have real-world experience. Northeastern University's graduate students put knowledge to work at Fortune 500 and startup companies, universities, government agencies, nonprofits, and global organizations. Leveraging curricula that are informed by partner employers, students gain the perspective of employers through experiential opportunities, activities, and real projects that align with their career goals. The result is an educational experience founded on proven scholarship, strengthened with practical application, and sustained by academic excellence. Students in the College of Professional Studies include working professionals, military veterans, and international students committed to advance or pivot their career to pursue their passions, unlock opportunities and improve their lives and the lives of their families. To allow for rapid development of learning experiences in agile, stackable, modular formats, faculty in the College of Professional Studies are organized around emerging domains of practice. These domains represent the College's platforms for realizing knowledge networks that act as zones of interchange between the future of work and traditional research university disciplines. The Master's in Commerce and Economic Development is part of the College's Global Social Enterprise Domain along with other programs such as Global Studies and International Relations, Non-Profit Management and Finance/Accounting Management. Through an integrated experiential approach, the Master's in Commerce and Economic Development prepares students to be active, impactful participants in our evolving society and economy, engaged global citizens and leaders, and successful professionals in the U.S. and abroad. The Master's degree in Commerce and Economic Development is looking for a candidate to help lead a growing program that is well positioned to leverage local and international engagement as the University extends its presence around the globe. The position offering is a full-time, non-tenure track, one-year renewable appointment as an Assistant Teaching Professor. The candidate will be expected to teach as a content expert in Economics and Finance, with particular expertise in Economic and Financial analysis. The candidate will hold a Lead Faculty role for the program involving coordination with other full-time and half-time faculty, as well as recruitment, coaching, and supervision of part-time instructors, enrollment goal setting, collaborating with marketing, enrollment, advisement, and program management team members. The candidate is expected to provide academic leadership to the Program under the direction of the Faculty Director of the Global Social Enterprise domain. The position is based in Boston, Massachusetts. Courses are taught in multiple formats including online, blended, and hybrid. While faculty have the opportunity for a home office, they are required to maintain office hours as directed and necessary. Faculty enjoy a collegial work environment that allows for work-life balance, and are expected to be available to students, whether in-person or online. Opportunities exist for additional compensation through other non-teaching activities. Faculty contribute to the College's mission through teaching, service and scholarship.
