The School of Earth, Environmental and Marine Sciences at The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) occasionally has the need to hire Part-time Lecturers to teach in its Bachelor of Science program. We are searching for a dynamic individual, who is committed to excellence in the classroom and can contribute to a rapidly growing major and assist in the process of expanding course offerings. Responsibilities include delivering quality instruction in undergraduate environmental science courses. Employment is subject to change based on enrollment needs and budgetary approval.

The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) was created by the Texas Legislature in 2013 as the first major public university of the 21st century in Texas. This transformative initiative provided the opportunity to expand educational opportunities in the Rio Grande Valley, including a new School of Medicine, and made it possible for residents of the region to benefit from the Permanent University Fund – a public endowment contributing support to the University of Texas System and other institutions.

UTRGV has campuses and off-campus research and teaching sites throughout the Rio Grande Valley including in Boca Chica Beach, Brownsville (formerly The University of Texas at Brownsville campus), Edinburg (formerly The University of Texas-Pan American campus), Harlingen, McAllen, Port Isabel, Rio Grande City, and South Padre Island. UTRGV, a comprehensive academic institution, enrolled its first class in the fall of 2015, and the School of Medicine welcomed its first class in the summer of 2016.
This posting is for fall 2020, spring 2021, and/or summer 2021 semesters only, subject to change based on enrollment needs and budgetary approval.
