Employment: Lecturer Pool
Send CV and Cover Letter to Kathryn Davis.
The Department of Geography at San José State University usually fills four (4) to eight (8) courses each semester with temporary lecturers. Preferences for continued employment are given to temporary faculty continuing from a previous semester. However a pool of applicants is maintained continously to fill new opportunities as they occur. New temporary lecturers are selected from this pool. Please contact the department chairperson or the department administrative assistant to find out if new opportunities are available for the next semester. Hiring for all these courses ultimately depends upon student enrollment in these courses.
To enter the pool of possible appointments, applicants must have a masters or doctorate degree in Geography or a closely related discipline. Applicants with a Ph.D. degree are preferred. University teaching experience is preferred. Professional experience in addition to the graduate degree will also be considered in evaluation. Applicants must be well-organized, energetic, professional, and interested in working with students of diverse personal and employment backgrounds.
