Adjunct Physics Instructor

03/05/2018 3:40 pm

Rockford University invites applications for adjunct instructors to teach courses and/or laboratory sessions for Introductory Physics and/or Astronomy. The introductory physics course is designed to teach physics concepts in a two-course algebra-based sequence. The introductory astronomy course is designed as an introductory survey of astronomy.
The teaching load is expected to be 3 – 6 hrs. per week with flexibility on day/times to accommodate an adjunct schedule. This would be a great opportunity for an aspiring faculty member to be an instructor of record, or someone returning to physics after a hiatus, or a retiree who wants to enjoy teaching and learning again.

Minimum Qualifications:
Master’s Degree in Physics, Physics Education or related field from an accredited college or university required. Prior teaching experience is highly preferred. Enthusiasm for teaching in a small liberal arts university setting is essential.

Review of applications will start immediately. Interested candidates should e-mail a curriculum vitae, a teaching statement, and all related transcripts graduate and undergraduate to
