Assistant Clinical Professor in Global Technology and Development
Arizona State University
School for the Future of Innovation in Society


The College of Global Futures leadership and its faculty embrace ASU’s mission as being a comprehensive public research university, measured not by whom it excludes, but rather by whom it includes and how they succeed; advancing research and discovery of public value; and assuming fundamental responsibility for the economic, social, cultural and overall health of the communities it serves. We support and foster a culture of inclusiveness, tolerance, and respect that promotes equal opportunity and diversity among CGF faculty, staff, and students and through its engagement with diverse communities within and beyond the University.


The School for the Future of Innovation in Society invites applicants for a full-time, academic year (August 16 – May 15), Clinical Assistant Professor position to support teaching and student mentoring in the Master of Science in Global Technology and Development. The MS in Global Technology and Development (GTD) offers a global program that encompasses social, economic and political development, while highlighting the variables of technology and innovation in these development processes.


We seek to complement the current faculty in terms of development experience, areas of teaching and research, at the same time, add to the group of faculty that offer the programs’ core curriculum on a regular basis. The core consists of an introduction to global development, development policies and practices, and research design and methods. The primary responsibilities would be to: teach 3 courses per semester in the GTD program, develop and revise curriculum, mentor graduate students in their applied projects, and to engage in relevant activities and collaborations within the School. There is also the potential to move into a role that includes program leadership.


Clinical professor positions are fixed-term, benefits-eligible, non-tenure eligible appointments. The anticipated start date is January 2023. Renewal is contingent on satisfactory job performance, continued availability of funding, and the needs of the academic unit and university.
