The Boston University Department of Mechanical Engineering has an opening for a Professor of the Practice.

This position is a limited-term, non-tenure track appointment with a 9-month academic year salary. Possibilities of support in the summer include summer classes and various outreach programs.  Instructional faculty in the Mechanical Engineering department are expected to teach multiple courses per year (typically, four to six). These positions come with full benefits.
