Biology adjunct faculty typically teach introductory, non-majors courses including BIOL103: Environmental Biology, BIOL104: Human Biology, and BIOL105: Biology for Health Sciences. Opportunities may arise to teach in introductory majors courses or electives. Course loads are most commonly comprised of two or three sections (a section being ~24 students) of a single course, with three hours of combined lectures and individual 2- to 3-hour labs for each section.
Adjunct faculty positions supplement the faculty of a department wherever additional faculty are needed. Adjunct faculty hold appointments as defined by their letter of appointment, without eligibility for tenure; where authorized by the Dean, adjunct appointments may be renewed. Adjunct appointments do not guarantee course assignments.
All faculty must have at least a Master's degree in the field/discipline in which they are teaching with 18 hours of course work related to the course(s) being taught. In some cases, subject to the approval by the Provost, a faculty member could be recommended for appointment based on substitution of significant experience for the degree.
Prior experience teaching at the collegiate level.
