The appointment for this one-year postdoctoral visiting assistant professorship will be for the 2018–2019 academic year.

As a Jesuit, Catholic institution, Boston College requires all students to complete a fifteen-course liberal arts Core Curriculum as the foundation of their undergraduate education.

Developed for first-year students, these interdisciplinary Complex Problems and Enduring Questions courses are part of an ongoing revitalization of the Core Curriculum.

In 2018–2019, one semester the Visiting Assistant Professor will teach project-based lab sections associated with a Complex Problems course, “Powering America: The Past and Future of Energy, Technology, and the Environment,” co-taught by faculty from History and Earth and Environmental Sciences. In the other semester, he/she will teach two courses: an Enduring Questions course (paired with a second course designed with another Core Visiting Professor from History) and an elective in his/her field. Teaching in any subsequent year will depend on program needs.
