Undergraduate Biology Program
The University of Kansas Edwards Campus and the Molecular Biosciences program invite qualified scholars and professionals to apply for lecturer positions. Lecturers are untenured, non-tenure-track members of the faculty. Positions vary and are dependent upon the need, if any, each semester for development and/or instruction of course(s). Primary role is instruction, with no obligations to perform research or service. The appointment dates will vary based on the type of lecturer appointment and the timeframe for the preparation and instruction of the course(s).
A successful candidate must have appropriate authorization to work in the U.S. before employment begins. Any employment with the University of Kansas is contingent upon satisfactory completion of a background check. Appointments are one semester, renewable and subject to review, funding, and adequate student enrollment.
This position will be a hybrid of on-site work and telework as deemed by supervisor.
