Boston University’s College of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences: Sargent College invites applications for a full-time, renewable, non-tenure track faculty position at the rank of Senior Lecturer in the Human Physiology Program within the Department of Health Sciences. This is a 10-month appointment with the possibility of summer instruction. We are seeking to fill this position with a strong candidate as soon as possible, searching for a colleague with strong leadership and mentoring skills who will serve as Program Director for the Undergraduate (B.S.) and Graduate (M.S.) Programs in Human Physiology. This position will be a strategic hire that will allow us to build upon the College’s tradition of excellence in the health sciences and its commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Senior Lecturers at Boston University are expected to teach undergraduate and graduate students and participate in advising and service activities. They will be responsible for directing the Undergraduate and Graduate Programs in Human Physiology. These are thriving, high-enrollment programs with recently redesigned curricula. We seek a colleague committed to evidence-based teaching practices and the mentorship of our talented student body. The human physiology program includes a semester- or yearlong field experience practicum course which is the crown jewel of the undergraduate experience. This faculty member will direct this course and play a central mentorship role with our students throughout their experience. Additionally, this faculty member will have a demonstrated ability to teach other upper-division physiology courses of their choosing. A successful candidate will have demonstrated excellence in classroom instruction at the college/university level, expertise in STEM pedagogy, and experience with curriculum development.

  • Demonstrated competence in teaching human physiology
  • Strong communication and leadership skills
  • A desire to teach and mentor undergraduate and graduate students
  • Prior experience with academic advising for health sciences students is highly desired

The Department of Health Sciences is part of a vibrant Boston University academic and research community that includes 17 schools and colleges across the Charles River and Medical campuses, including the Boston University School of Public Health as well as many other highly regarded medical and educational institutions in the Boston area that allow for collaborative and interdisciplinary activities. We invite you to join our interdisciplinary faculty team and become involved with our network of collaborations within Boston University and the greater Boston community.

The Difference Is Our DNA

What compelled the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to award Boston University a grant to fight newborn mortality in Zambia? Why did Martin Luther King, Jr. adopt BU as a place where he could hone his message of justice and equality? And what is the catalyst that prompts 32,557 students from 135 countries to call BU their home every semester? It’s in our DNA: an inherent desire in each of our students, faculty, and staff to vigorously and dauntlessly pursue knowledge—and embrace the unlimited possibilities that come with it.

A Community Unlike Any Other

As you can see below, it takes people, ideas, and a little luck (Boston, you’re our town) to make BU what it is today: one of the most dynamic universities in the world.

Celebrated thinkers: On any given day, students will find themselves mesmerized by Nobel Prize winners, a poet laureate, and the first biomedical engineer ever to receive a MacArthur Foundation “Genius Award,” among others.

Extraordinary teaching: When a classroom starts to percolate with new ideas, it’s because our faculty of scholars and accomplished practitioners know how to ignite students’ imaginations. That’s why we reward our best teachers with BU’s most prestigious honor: The Metcalf Cup and Prize.

Groundbreaking research: With faculty dedicated to a creative, interdisciplinary approach to problem solving, BU has become a leading global research institution—propelled forward by over $350 million a year in sponsored program revenue.

World-class students: Elite students from all 50 states and 135 countries pursue higher education on BU campuses in Boston and at programs in L.A., D.C., and more than 30 other cities on six continents.

A city within a city: Today, 80% of our undergrads live on campus, which could explain the 525 student activity groups alone.

The greatest college town in the world: Boston. ’Nuff said.
