Please note that all employment is part-time, and instructors are hired on a course by course basis. If accepted for consideration, applicants will undergo a period of training which will include auditing courses on their own time as well as working with one or more core faculty on an on-going basis until the department is confident that the individual is able to work independently. Applicants are normally considered to instruct only one course at a time.
