This is a nine-month position; opportunities for summer teaching are typically available. The successful candidate is expected to contribute to the development and success of EDA through teaching (face-to-face, hybrid, and online), research, and service. An essential responsibility of this position will be to assist in developing an M.S.E. program in conjunction with our 2U partner. This position also provides the opportunity to engage in school and community partnerships, which may require off-site travel.

The dual career program serves as a resource and support system and is not intended to take the place of one’s own job search efforts. While we cannot guarantee placement, we serve as an effective support system for your spouse. Information can be found at
