Job Overview
The Department of Biological Sciences is looking to hire an annual adjunct instructor for the 2021-2022 academic year. The main responsibility of the candidate will be to instruct the two large lecture sections each semester of Anatomy & Physiology I (Fall) and II (Spring). Appointments are renewable based upon departmental need, enrollments, and teaching performance.

Teaching is assigned on an annual basis for the two 4 credit-hour lecture sections; office hours are required to meet with students as needed. Every effort will be made to accommodate schedule preferences; however, individual teaching assignments will have to be made within the confines of the overall schedule. Consequently, we cannot guarantee preferred times and days.

Rank and compensation is based on experience and academic credentials. While the appointment involves teaching the lecture sections of Anatomy and Physiology in each of Fall and Spring semesters, compensation and benefits occur across 12 months. Annual adjunct instructors are also eligible for benefits. Annual adjuncts are also eligible for three credit hours of tuition remission each term.

On a part-time basis, conduct and teach assigned undergraduate and/or graduate-level courses and seminars.
May serve as an academic adviser for students and evaluate student coursework.
Engage in other activities ancillary to or in support of his or her responsibilities.
Review, and where necessary, respond in a timely manner to all University-related communications.
Other related duties as assigned.
Minimum Requirements
Master's or PhD degree required, with demonstrated ability and prior teaching experience
Excellent written and oral communication skills with the ability to present complex material to students unfamiliar with a subject.
