POSITION TITLE: Assistant/Associate Teaching Professor Full-Time/Director of the SCTL MS Program, University of Washington

Department: Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering

Location: University of Washington | Review of applications will begin April 11, 2022

OVERVIEW: The University of Washington seeks applications for the Faculty Director of the Master of Supply Chain Transportation and Logistics (MSCTL) program. The successful applicant will work independently as Faculty Director while also having an academic appointment as an Assistant or Associate Teaching Professor, full-time, in the University of Washington Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) for three years, with the possibility of renewal.

This position has a nine-month appointment with three additional months of summer support; the candidate is expected to work during the summer months with an ideal start date on or before June 16, 2022. This position includes faculty voting rights in CEE, but is not tenure eligible. Compensation will be commensurate with applicant qualifications, and reflects the dual role of both Faculty Director and Assistant/Associate Teaching Professor. The Faculty Director will work closely with the CEE and SCTL Faculty, and a team of dedicated MSCTL staff to envision and implement strategic priorities for the program.

The successful candidate’s intended appointment will be in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. CEE offers BS, MS, and PhD degrees and is committed to the guiding principles of respect for people, equity, interdisciplinary exploration, and thoughtful impact. What distinguishes the MSCTL Faculty Director from mainstream academic appointments is that in addition to having teaching responsibilities within the MSCTL program and the broader CEE degree programs, the Faculty Director will also have responsibility for MSCTL program administration and implementation of strategic initiatives to advance the program. To best support MSCTL students and fulfill leadership responsibilities, this position does not allow time for significant research or practice.

The opportunity is to be an integral part of a nationally recognized graduate program where the emphasis is on student experience and curricular relevance in the exciting field of Supply Chain Transportation and Logistics.
