Instructional Professor, Assistant
The University of Wyoming Honors College invites applications for the position of Assistant Instructional Professor, on a Fixed-Term Rolling Contract track. The successful candidate will teach six courses per year (75% of the job description) and engage in service to the College and the University (15% of the job description) and maintain an active professional development profile (10% of the job description).
In the field of academic expertise, we seek a PhD or MFA in a humanities, fine arts, or social science field. It is imperative that candidates have interest and experience in interdisciplinary approaches to teaching. The successful candidate will teach in our core first-year sequence, an interdisciplinary colloquium for first-year students in the Honors College. This course is a multi-section, small-seminar-style, theme-based, writing-intensive course with readings from multiple disciplines. The successful candidate will also collaborate with colleagues in the continuing development of these courses, and will offer non-western based, upper-division humanities, fine arts or social science-themed seminar courses. These are courses in which students learn about a non-western cultural tradition from perspectives from within that tradition.
