ADJUNCT POOL DESCRIPTION:
This request for application is to establish a pool for adjunct teaching assignments for Water Resources Technology Program- Water Utility Operations and Wastewater Treatment Operations. Adjunct teaching assignments may be temporary, part-time and/or on-call and may be immediate or as needed. This job posting is not for a specific assignment or for a full-time faculty position.
Candidates selected for the pool and offered an assignment must be located near enough to the District or plan on moving near the District to accept part-time, substitute or emergency assignments. Candidates who are recommended for the pool after committee interviews will only be added to the pool for disciplines interviewed and qualified for (not necessarily all disciplines included in this job posting where multiple disciplines are listed). Assignments could involve full or partial assignment at any of the District's sites or off-campus locations, and could involve any combination of day or evening classes, with office hours being mandatory.
Applications are accepted for adjunct faculty pools on a continuous basis. If the department has an immediate need to add candidates to their pool, they will review applications. If the department does not have an immediate need to add candidates to their pool, all applications will remain on file until the need arises or up to one year. If selected for interview, candidates will be invited to interview with a Screening Committee. The Screening Committee may include representatives from the Faculty, the Administration, the Classified Staff, the Associated Students, and the Board of Trustees. If recommended for the pool, references will be checked at any point beyond the interview. If selected for the pool, candidates remain in the pool for a period of four years.
The Engineering & Applied Technology department is home to the Engineering Transfer Program and multiple Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs including: Civil Engineering Technology, Computer Modeling & Animation, Mechatronics, Geospatial Technology, Interior Design, Solar Photovoltaics, Surveying Technology, Water Utility Operations, Wastewater Treatment Operations, Architecture, Construction Management, and Computer-Aided Drafting. The Engineering Transfer Program offers the standard spectrum of freshman and sophomore engineering classes needed to transfer as a junior to a 4-year college or university so students may complete their bachelor's degree in the engineering discipline of their choice. CTE programs typically offer various certificates for completion of specific courses to assist students seeking employment within local industries.
