Adjunct Faculty FY 23-24
St. Mary’s College of Maryland is accepting applications for the contingent position of Adjunct Faculty. Adjunct faculty are temporary, ad hoc, non-tenure-track teaching positions, hired to teach specific courses as needed by the College. Application materials are held on file for one academic year, after which applicants may resubmit their applications. These are contingent positions with no benefits provided.
Qualifications will vary according to position; minimum requirements include an advanced post-graduate degree, with preference for terminal post-graduate degree, in related field of study. Employment will be contingent upon successful completion of a criminal background check.
Non-sectarian since its founding, St. Mary’s College of Maryland, a public Carnegie Baccalaureate, Arts and Sciences institution located in St. Mary’s City, 70 miles southeast of Washington, D.C., has been designated as Maryland’s public honors college. With selective admissions policies, academically talented students, and a rigorous curriculum, we offer a small college experience similar to that found at exceptional private colleges. The quality of life is enhanced by the recreational opportunities of the Chesapeake region and by our proximity to Washington, D.C. and Baltimore.
St. Mary’s College (www.smcm.edu) embodies diversity and inclusion in its mission. We create an environment that recognizes the value of individual and group differences and we encourage inquiries from applicants who will contribute to our cultural and ethnic diversity.
Application materials should include a cover letter in which candidate addresses how their teaching will contribute to an inclusive classroom, curriculum vitae (including email address), and evidence of teaching effectiveness (if available). In support of inclusive hiring practices, for all SMCM faculty searches initiated after February 15, 2023, the College will also request three professional references (rather than letters of recommendation) at the time of application. Of these three references, at least one referee should speak to the candidate's disciplinary expertise and at least one should have seen the candidate deliver or design classroom instruction. References will be contacted only for candidates who advance to finalist interviews. Applications are being accepted online at apply.interfolio.com/124389. Questions may be directed to Dr. Katherine Gantz, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of Faculty at 240-895-4922.
Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the positions are filled. St. Mary’s College of Maryland is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.
