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. We also expect to hire one or two adjunct instructors to teach on our new branch campus in Frisco, including instruction of elementary probability and statistics in the North Texas NOW! dual-credit partership with Frisco ISD. 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.

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. for some of the Denton positions. 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 for the Denton positions. For the Frisco positions, we would like to know about your prior experience with project-based instruction and collaborative multi-disciplinary teaching and/or curriculum design.
UNT is planning a return to normal in-person operations in Fall 2021. We expect to only hire applicants willing and able to teach in-person on either our Denton or Frisco campuses. We do also ask about experience with online instruction, and we are most interested in applicants with online teaching experience but also wanting to teach in-person.
New adjuncts interested in Denton 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.
