The Mathematics Department has a regular need for part-time adjunct faculty instructors in the fall and spring semesters to teach on our Denton campus. Our need in the spring is smaller than in the fall, so during the spring we generally only hire adjuncts who have previously been employed by us. We review applications for new part-time adjunct instructors for the fall semesters each May or June. We generally do not have a need for adjuncts during our summer terms. Note: The only classes currently available to part-time adjunct instructors are physical face-to-face classes held on the Denton campus. We do not have any adjunct opportunities for online courses, nor do we have any opportunities on the Frisco campus. UNT Dallas has a separate hiring process.

The application will ask about your prior experience teaching introductory college mathematics courses and to discuss your experience with various online learning platforms (e.g. Blackboard, ALEKS, MyMathLab, Webassign). It is also hlepful to have a sense of your prior experience supervising teaching assistants and how you coordinate and mentor them. A description of your prior experience managing class sizes of around 100 students is also helpful.
New adjuncts should be prepared to teach either in the early morning (8 a.m.), late afternoons (3:30-5), or evenings (5 or later).
Note that in order to be considered for an adjunct instructor position in the Mathematics Department, you must already have authorization to be employed in the United States, for instance because you are a US citizen, a permanent resident, or you will be in OPT status on a student visa that will be valid for the full semester in which you are seeking employment. Also, adjunct instructors cannot be UNT students enrolled in classes during the term they are employed as an adjunct instructor.
