Job Description

Applications for a full-time, professional track lecturer with expertise in project management, student teamwork, engaging external stakeholders, and developing and implementing experiential learning projects. This position will focus on supporting and enhancing the work of the iConsultancy, which oversees experiential learning for the College. iConsultancy partners with industry, government, and communities to develop challenging, problem-based learning experiences and to integrate them into our undergraduate and graduate curricula, primarily in the form of capstone courses (a culminating learning experience for students at the end of their degrees). These projects are structured as consulting engagements, in which student teams, with faculty guidance and support, take on projects in areas such as data science, data visualization, data engineering, user experience (UX) user interface (UI) design, database and technology development, and website design.
