Part-time faculty positions
We maintain a pool of people who are interested in teaching part-time in our Department. When a need arises, we review the files in the pool to find the instructor most suited to the particular course. A master's degree in physics (or engineering, for some courses) is the minimum requirement. Previous college teaching experience is highly desirable.
Laboratory instructors help teach the introductory physics laboratories. These positions are normally for 3 hours per week. If you are currently a graduate student in the CSU, have a master's degree in physics, or currently teaching physics at the advanced high school level, you are eligible to teach a lab.
