The College of Agriculture is seeking to expand its lecturer pool in each of its five departments.

The college invites applications from qualified professionals to join our part-time lecturer pool. It is especially interested in individuals who are qualified to teach animal science and plant science.

Minimum qualifications:

  • Appropriate master's degree
  • Relevant professional experience

Preferred qualifications:

  • ABD or Ph.D. 
  • College-level teaching experience
  • For AHS applicants, a BS and RVT

Incumbents may be reappointed to subsequent quarters contingent upon funding and favorable performance evaluations.
