Teaching Professor and Director Science Education

Date Posted:
12/26/2017

Goergetown

DC

Background:
The Georgetown University School of Foreign Service is consistently recognized as the world's premier undergraduate institution for the study of international affairs. We continually update our curriculum to prepare students for emerging international challenges and their own increasingly varied career paths. Although at least 75 current and former ambassadors are graduates of the SFS, our students are now as likely to apply their training to the private sector, NGOs and international organizations as to the traditional fields of diplomacy.
As we enter our centennial year, we recognize the increasing role for science in all aspects of life, including international relations. We have now committed ourselves to include science education within our core curriculum as one way of providing our graduates with the tools and confidence to engage with science and technology issues throughout their careers.

Position Description:
We will continue to encourage our students to take classes from the university's science departments but also wish to create and deliver a new generation of science classes. The classes will be oriented around issues relevant to international policy but will at their heart focus on an understanding of science and the scientific method as well as providing students with the excitement and confidence to later engage with science on their own. These classes need not be bound by single scientific disciplines and may have titles such as The Science of Climate Change, The Science of Emerging Technology, The Science of Global Health, or The Science of Weapons of Mass Destruction. We are open to other models and approaches as well as to curricular experimentation.
The School seeks to fill a newly created, Non-Tenure Line position of Teaching Professor and Director of Science Education to support this agenda.
The appointment may be at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor Level and will initially be for a period of three years. The appointment is renewable depending on performance. We expect the position to have transformative impacts on the next generation of international leaders.

Duties:

The incumbent will initially work with the Senior Associate Dean for Undergraduate Affairs, the Director of the Program in Science Technology and International Affairs and others to shape a selection of courses that rigorously introduce policy relevant science and technology understanding to non-science majors. This scientific understanding will be part of a broader core curriculum that includes economics, history, and international relations and is nested within a liberal arts tradition focused on educating the whole person and service to others.
The incumbent will lead the creation of science focused content within the School of Foreign Service and take primary responsibility for envisioning and implementing a relevant, exciting selection of courses that are technically rigorous but targeted at students majoring outside of the sciences.
The incumbent will personally develop and deliver the equivalent of 5 classes per year. During the first year, the teaching load will be reduced.
The position will report directly to the Senior Associate Dean for Undergraduate Affairs but will work closely with the Director of the School's innovative Program in Science, Technology and International Affairs (STIA), science programs at Georgetown, and others. The incumbent's academic home will be within the STIA program.
Qualifications:

The primary considerations in filling the position are a Ph.D. in a relevant area of science and a passion for educating a new generation of scientifically astute international leaders.
Successful candidates will be able to demonstrate excellence in science teaching and, preferably, in curricular development.
The School of Foreign Service has a long and successful history of combining traditional scholars and seasoned practitioners in the delivery of education. We welcome applicants from either background.
Although the disciplinary background is open, the candidate must demonstrate mastery of at least one area of science and be able to articulate its linkages to important international policy questions.
We welcome applicants with relevant research agendas, but candidates will be evaluated based on their interest and excellence in teaching.
To Apply:
Complete applications will include a cover letter explaining your competency, passion and vision for the position. Other supporting material may be included. Shortlisted candidates will be asked to provide course syllabi, evaluations or other evidence of teaching excellence along with three letters of reference. The position may commence in the Summer or Fall of 2018. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis beginning January 15, 2018 until the position is filled.

Applications for this position should be submitted online at: https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/10579. Faxed, mailed, or emailed applications will not be accepted.

Questions about the online application system should be directed to Sarah Nebbeling, Manager of Faculty Affairs, at ska60@georgetown.edu. Queries about the position should be directed to Mark.Giordano@Georgetown.edu.
