Brief Description of Duties
We invite applications for a pool of part-time lecturers, should an opening arise, to teach undergraduate courses in Geology. The number of positions varies from semester to semester, depending on the needs of the Department. The pool will remain in place for two calendar years; those interested in remaining in the pool beyond that time must reapply. We are seeking outstanding lecturers who can teach small to large lecture courses in undergraduate general education (lower and upper division). Positions start at the beginning of a semester and appointments may be renewed based on department need, funding, and performance.
- The candidate must demonstrate awareness and experience understanding the needs of a student population of great diversity – in age, abilities, cultural background, ethnicity, religion, economic background, primary language, sexual orientation, gender identity, and academic preparation – through inclusive course materials, teaching strategies and advisement.
- Faculty shall organize all their classes within the Canvas Learning Management System (LMS).
- All classes must be offered and meet as scheduled throughout the entire semester or term, in the mode assigned and listed in the schedule of classes (i.e., asynchronous, synchronous, bichronous, in-person, or hybrid).
M.S. in Geology/Earth Science or equivalent is strongly recommended, although a B.S. in Geology/Earth Science with teaching experience (optimally 2+ years) would also be considered for certain lower division general education courses and labs. Good oral and written communication skills, commitment to student learning and team performance are required. Applicants should demonstrate an awareness of and sensitivity to the educational goals of a multicultural population as might have been gained in cross-cultural study, training, teaching and other comparable experience.
