Search Procedures for Full-time Temporary Faculty Positions

As department chairs make plans for the following academic year, requests for a full-time temporary faculty position may be submitted to the Associate Dean for Teaching-Track and Visiting Faculty. The College prefers to hire full-time when possible because it creates greater stability for the faculty members and better teaching for students. 

A full-time appointment in Weinberg College consists of 6 content courses or 9 language courses (or their equivalents). The goal is to address the ways in which contingent faculty are hired, providing greater opportunities for scholars to apply for such positions.
