The successful candidate will teach within three New College programs: B.S. Project Design and Analysis, B.S. Applied Project Design and Analysis, and B.S. in Industrial Distribution. All programs in New College feature project-based curricula, which require creativity and collaboration among faculty as well as cross-course integration.

Clinical faculty are also expected to engage in scholarly and professional activity as well as service to the department and college. This position is a non-tenure track, 9-month appointment.
