The position requires working with CED faculty to deliver high-quality course content and support students in learning and skills development.

Current openings exist in the following courses, but not limited to:
• Applied Mathematics and Statistics for Economics
• Applied Microeconomics
• Applied Macroeconomics
• Economics of Human Capital
• Cultural Economic Development

Please refer to our program’s website to view a more detailed description of your course of interest: http://www.cps.neu.edu/degree-programs/graduate/masters-degrees/masters-economic-development.php.

Responsibilities of the position include:
Teaching one or more 8 week (Summer term, usually starting in July) or 12 week (Fall, Winter and Spring; September, January and April starts, respectively) asynchronous online courses, or blended courses, per academic year. Both blended and online courses have a Blackboard component, which require pre-term course development (including weekly readings, assignments, and multi-media lectures), and in-term commitments of monitoring online discussion boards, general course management, grading, and online presence of at least one hour per day, five days a week at the instructor’s schedule. Online courses are asynchronous, and although near daily participation is a must, an exact time is not required. Training in Blackboard (the online course platform) will be provided.

Qualifications

Preferred Terminal degree in economics or related field, industry experience and three or more years of proven teaching experience required.
A history of successful teaching at the graduate level is strongly preferred and experience teaching online is a plus. Candidates should demonstrate cultural competence and commitment to working with international students, adult learners, and underserved student populations.
