Full-Time Lecturer Openings in Business Analytics, Entrepreneurship and Management, and Professional Communication




Johns Hopkins Universitys Center for Leadership Education (CLE) seeks highly qualified candidates for full-time teaching positions with a focus on Business Analytics, Entrepreneurship and Management, and Professional Communication beginning fall 2014. The CLE offers renewable, one-year contracts that, with appropriate review, become eligible for longer-term contracts and promotion to senior lecturer.  All positions in the Center are non-tenured, but Johns Hopkins has recently instituted a new teaching professorship career path for which all full-time lecturers in the CLE become eligible.


The CLE trains undergraduates in marketing, communication, entrepreneurship, management, pre-law, accounting, and finance subject areas. The Center also provides graduate training through the Masters in Engineering Management Program and the Professional Development Program, the latter program open to all JHU graduate students and post-doctoral fellows. The successful candidate should expect to teach both undergraduate and graduate students.
