Position Description:    

POSITION Duke Innovation & Entrepreneurship (Duke I&E) invites applications for a part-time Lecturing Fellow position (non-regular rank) to teach Narrative Design course as part of the Duke Innovation & Entrepreneurship (Duke I&E) graduate certificate program. The short course is offered for seven consecutive weeks in both Fall and Spring semesters, beginning Fall 2024.

REQUIREMENTS Candidate must have practical experience in business communications with a preference for those with a complementary advanced degree, e.g. MBA.

Candidate must have a demonstrated track record of excellent classroom instruction skills in the area of business communications. Additionally, an enthusiasm for working in a highly entrepreneurial setting and a desire to contribute to advancing the Duke I&E mission are desired.

RESPONSIBILITES Instructor for two sections (Fall semester and Spring semester) of the Narrative Design course, which is part of the Duke I&E Graduate certificate. The course meets in person, once per week for seven consecutive weeks. For Fall 2024, the course is scheduled to meet weekly on Thursdays from 4:40pm to 6:10pm from September 5-Oct.17, 2024. The dates and times for the Spring semester can be scheduled with preference from the instructor.

SALARY $5,000 per 7-week section. Non-negotiable.
