About the Job

The University of Minnesota Rochester (www.r.umn.edu) invites applications for a non-tenure track, 1- year with potential for annually renewable faculty position in chemistry for its undergraduate degree program, the Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences (BSHS). The position is primarily teaching-focused with the expectation of contributing to departmental and institutional service (90% teaching, 10% service). Review of applications will begin May 2, until the position is filled, with the expectation of an August 2019 start date.

We are seeking a qualified instructor who has significant interest in supporting student learning in a high-contact model inside and outside of the classroom and will work closely with other faculty to coordinate and teach the range of chemistry courses needed by students in the BSHS program. We are seeking an instructor prepared to teach undergraduate general and organic chemistry.

Duties include assisting preparation and team-taught delivery of course content in the active learning classroom, assisting in preparing and teaching laboratory sessions, grading, holding weekly hours in the Just ASK tutoring center (http://www.r.umn.edu/academics/just-ask/index.htm), supervising undergraduate teaching assistants, facilitating department-wide data collection efforts that coincide with course delivery duties, and other related duties as assigned.

The instructor will join the Center for Learning Innovation (CLI), an innovative, interdisciplinary department. The CLI leads the development and teaching of an integrated, writing-enriched curriculum for a baccalaureate degree in the health sciences. It promotes a learner-centered, undergraduate environment in which ongoing assessment informs pedagogical and curricular choices and is the basis for data-driven research on learning.
