Join INVEST! A new Junior Faculty Program

Faculty positions: no postdoc needed!

The Northeastern College of Science is hiring brilliant faculty.

Our innovative INVEST program is a new approach to faculty hiring. If you are completing your PhD or at an early stage of your postdoctoral training, you may be interested in this accelerated pathway to tenure-track faculty appointments.

  • INVEST includes the optional Northeastern Science Fellows Program, 1-2 years of funded, mentored, independent postdoc experience to ramp up your research program

  • Your tenure track position begins before or at the completion of the Science Fellows Program

INVEST faculty are brilliant and diverse across all demographics of society

  • Junior faculty contribute to important cross-disciplinary research
