Gwinnett Technical College is looking for help in the classroom with the addition of new adjunct faculty for its campuses in Lawrenceville and Alpharetta next semester. These faculty teach part-time in a wide variety of subject areas and are often top professionals in their fields, as well as offering solid academic credentials and a dedication to teaching. The addition of the new Alpharetta-North Fulton Campus, which will offer classes beginning in January 2016, has created new opportunities for faculty.
To help meet this need, two Adjunct Hiring Fairs have been scheduled for October. On Oct. 20, candidates may attend between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. on the Gwinnett Technical College Lawrenceville Campus in Building 100. A second Adjunct Hiring Fair is scheduled to take place Oct. 27, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., at Alpharetta City Hall. Applicants should bring a resume or curriculum vitae, as well as copies of unofficial transcripts. Qualified applicants may be asked to participate in a 10-minute interview. Online applications must be submitted prior to the hiring fair for consideration.
Currently Gwinnett Technical College has openings for adjunct instructors in the areas of business, computer science, healthcare, life sciences and general education classes. Applicants for these positions will be considered for classes at both locations. Placement of adjunct instructors is at the discretion of Gwinnett Technical College and based on the scheduling needs of the college.
Requirements for education and experience vary by field. Occupational and general education courses require a master’s degree in the discipline or a master’s degree with 18 graduate hours in the discipline. Technical and Adult Education courses require a credential at the same level at which the faculty member is teaching – typically a bachelor’s or associate degree with appropriate work experience. Developmental instructor candidates should have a bachelor’s degree in the discipline being taught and experience or graduate training.
Interested persons should review the opportunities and descriptions here. Candidates may also register for one of the two upcoming hiring fairs after applying for a position.
Gwinnett Technical College offers more than 150 degree, diploma and certificate program options that can be completed in two years or less. For more information, visit www.GwinnettTech.edu or call 770-962-7580.
