Ability to teach an interdisciplinary American Studies course is required, as is experience in teaching writing as a tool and extension of thought, a means by which students integrate and articulate what they have learned. Expertise in teaching Comparative Literature, Global History, Cultural Studies, International Relations, and/or Economics—in both face-to-face and online classrooms—is a plus. Teaching experience with advanced students preferred. Preparation for teaching an ethnically diverse student population as demonstrated by training and experience; experience in use of educational technology; commitment to curriculum design and willingness to participate in residential school programs including social, recreational, and advisory responsibilities at times other than usual school hours; willingness to do some evening instruction.

Description of Work: Founded in 1980, NCSSM is a state-supported residential and online high school for students who have demonstrated exceptional talent or interest in science, mathematics, and technology.

NCSSM's Program in the Humanities includes university-level interdisciplinary courses as well as a variety of sophisticated electives. The center of our program is an American Studies course, the core experience for all juniors. American Studies doubles as the base of the NCSSM Writing Program, which emphasizes writing in context.

These are full-time, ten-month appointments in the Department of Humanities, with full benefits through the State of North Carolina. Humanities Faculty are responsible for developing and teaching innovative and engaging humanities curricula, with a focus on interdisciplinary studies, in NCSSMs residential and/or highly interactive online and video-conferencing programs. These positions report to the Dean of Humanities and are responsible for providing instruction for American Studies, other interdisciplinary cultural studies courses, and humanities electives. Faculty should plan on playing an enthusiastic role in ongoing, collegial conversations about ideas, goals, pedagogical methods, and authentic assessment, within a collaborative teaching and learning environment.

General Duties Include: Develop and communicate to students clear course objectives and goals; plan and develop an instructional program that helps students assimilate specific course content and skills; hold tutorial sessions as outlined by the department; regularly monitor and evaluate students' progress, providing them with resources and feedback on their performance; structure and manage an environment conducive to learning; model for students responsibility to self and others; follow the School's philosophy, policies, and procedures; serve as academic advisor to a small group of students (beginning in the second year of employment); serve as a Mini-Term sponsor; attend departmental, faculty, and staff meetings; serve on departmental, faculty, and school-based standing committees; write recommendations for as many as 15 students each year, as requested; participate in professional development and personal intellectual growth activities.

These qualities are more important than any particular set of credentials. Applicants should have an interest in online teaching as well as team-teaching. Applicants should have a proven record of excellence and the ability to communicate and collaborate effectively with all members of the NCSSM community. Applicants should be dedicated to continual growth, both as teachers and learners. Since NCSSM is both a residential and online high school, faculty and staff are expected to participate in the intellectual, cultural, emotional, and social growth of students—responsibilities that transcend a traditional high school or college teaching schedule. Applicants should thus have the commitment, energy, and stamina to participate actively in the multi-dimensional life of the NCSSM community.

University of Utah (UT) -  Asst. Professor (Non-TT) - Honors College - OFFER ACCEPTEDEdit

The Honors College at the University of Utah invites applicants for a core Honors faculty position. Honors College faculty are non-tenured, career-line faculty who enjoy highly competitive salaries and excellent benefits. The College is seeking an Assistant Lecturer (3 year appointment with possibility of renewal) to teach in the Intellectual Traditions curriculum.

Intellectual Traditions (IT) courses are not “great books” courses, but rather, look at important, fundamental questions about the human experience. These courses are designed to stimulate students to be intellectually adventurous and provide them with a common honors experience. Courses ask overarching questions, such as: What does it mean to be human? How free are humans to act? How do we come to truth? What constitutes moral behavior? Are there divine forces? Is war justifiable? IT courses are currently organized into 3 separate semester-length classes that focus on the ancient world (beginnings to 30 CE), common era (30-1600 CE), and modern age (1600-present).

The Honors College at the University of Utah is one of the oldest honors programs in the country and known for its commitment to the liberal arts and innovative, engaged pedagogy. The curricula and co-curricular programs are intended to develop ethical citizens for the twenty-first century through engagement with intellectual traditions, research, global education and the local community. Students come from across the country and are typically socially conscious, have graduated in the top 10% of their class and are motivated to fully engage the resources available to them at the University of Utah. The faculty and staff are a close-knit community of collaborative and creative individuals.

The University of Utah, an AA/EO employer, encourages applications from women and minorities, and provides reasonable accommodation to the known disabilities of applicants and employees. The University of Utah values candidates who have experience working in settings with students from diverse backgrounds, and possess a strong or demonstrated commitment to improving access to higher education for historically underrepresented students.
