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.
UNT Dallas has a separate hiring process.
Click on the following link to apply for the 2020-21 academic year (fall 2020, spring 2021, and/or summer 2021): jobs.untsystem.edu/postings/37096. Information about applying for adjunct employment for the 2021-22 academic year should be available in April or May of 2021.
You will be asked to attach a current CV to your application. Include your level of education in your CV. We will usually only hire adjuncts who hold at least a masters degree in mathematics or closely related field (such as statistics), and we prefer candidates with Ph.D.s. The application will ask about your prior experience teaching introductory college mathematics courses and ask you to discuss your experience with various online learning platforms (e.g. Blackboard, Canvas, 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.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, many of our fall 2020 courses will be delivered online; however, we are unlikely to hire an adjunct instructor to teach online unless the applicant is also available to teach face-to-face in Denton or has prior teaching experience with us.
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.
