College of Health Solutions

Arizona State University’s College of Health Solutions (CHS) seeks a full-time, non-tenure eligible faculty member at the rank of Lecturer to teach undergraduate online and on-ground courses in the Health Science bachelor’s degree program. This position is a 9-month, non-tenure track teaching position.  Faculty duties include teaching undergraduate courses within the Health Science curriculum (80%, equivalent to 12 credits/4 courses per semester) and service to the college (20%).  The faculty member will be required to teach online courses and on-ground courses at the ASU Downtown Campus and ASU Polytechnic Campus. Applicants must present evidence of teaching experience and a strong commitment to high quality teaching at the undergraduate level. This is a fixed-term appointment that is renewable annually. Subsequent one-year appointments may be offered, under the same terms and conditions, at the discretion of the college and university. 

This position will work with faculty across the college to address our Grand Challenges, complex and difficult health problems which require transformative collaboration, translational research and innovation. Through teaching, academic programs, service and research, the college is focused on these Grand Challenges: Addressing the systems of health care and the health needs of populations, and optimizing health and human performance of individuals across the lifespan. We are particularly interested in making an impact on populations with significant health disparities.

At ASU and the College of Health Solutions, we work to maximize opportunities for people of diverse backgrounds, abilities and perspectives. We value and encourage cultural and intellectual diversity, and strive to foster a welcoming and inclusive environment for all faculty, staff and students — which we believe is critical to our success as a community.
