The Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs and the Nelson Center for Entrepreneurship invite applications for an adjunct lecturer position to teach a one-semester course about entrepreneurship and sustainability. This jointly supported course is designed to help students identify key environmental problems and explore the possibility of creating scalable solutions to those problems. Ideally, this course would have a strong experiential component that culminates in a project or significant work product that students undertake with faculty supervision. This course will be offered in the spring semester of 2021 and may be offered in-person, online, or in hybrid fashion, as circumstances allow. We are committed to building a teaching team diverse in people, ideas, and experiences and so encourage individuals who bring diverse perspectives to apply.
Applicants will have relevant professional experience as entrepreneurs, ideally having worked in an early-stage venture, on a project within an established company, or in an organization addressing a serious environmental challenge. An advanced degree is preferred. Experience teaching undergraduates or graduates and the ability to work with students from a broad range of backgrounds and areas of knowledge is expected. The ability to support in-person teaching with integrative technologies for remote teaching, should circumstances require it, is essential.
Interested applicants should submit the following:
