  • Adjunct - Semester Contract

Viterbo University is seeking a pool of qualified applicants for possible temporary part-time teaching assignments. These positions are filled on an as needed basis and are on-going recruitments. Assignments may include day, evening and weekend courses and may be in -person, online or blended courses.

As staffing needs arise, our deans will review the pool and contact those applicants they are interested in interviewing. There are also times that adjunct faculty are needed to fill a last minute void as well. Therefore, departments are better able to communicate their most recent teaching needs at the time of interviews.

Applicants must meet the minimum educational requirements listed in order to be considered for the pool of qualified candidates. All decisions are made upon the discretion of the department. Applicants who meet the minimum requirements are not automatically accepted to teach at Viterbo.

As this is for a pool of applicants, it may take time before you hear anything. If a dean or chair of a department has already reached out to you to teach, please continue with the application process to confirm your interest.

Applicants should upload cover letter indicating area of discipline along with a current vita. If recommended for a position, official transcripts will be required prior to a contract being issued.

Minimum Academic Qualifications: The expectation is that individuals who teach at the undergraduate level will typically hold a master's or higher in the discipline or subfield in which they teach. 

Minimum Professional Experience:  For individuals who hold a master's degree in a related field and do not have 18 credits directly in the subfield they will be teaching in or a masters in an unrelated field,  candidates may meet academic qualification through recent professional experience and expertise (work experience, publications, licensure, presentations, or equivalent within the last five years).
