Part-Time Lecturer Pool
The Department of Criminal Justice in the Division of Politics, Administration and Justice is seeking highly qualified part-time lecturers. California State University aspires to foster a dynamic, student-centered academic community in the context of a large, urban comprehensive university.
The Department of Criminal Justice has over 1300 majors and minors. Courses are 3-units per semester, and are typically offered in a lecture-discussion mode. Information about the curriculum and its faculty may be obtained by visiting http://hss.fullerton.edu/PAJ. We are seeking intelligent, highly motivated, and well organized part-time lecturers to teach in our curriculum. We are particularly interested in faculty to teach in face to face classes scheduled between 8am and 4pm.
Candidates should be enrolled in a Ph.D program in criminology, criminal justice, or related field, or have an M.A with substantial graduate work. Candidates should have prior teaching experience at the university level. Candidates should demonstrate their ability to interact and work effectively with a wide and culturally diverse range of students, including first-generation college students.
A background check (including a criminal record check) must be completed satisfactorily before any candidate can be offered a position within the CSU. Failure to satisfactorily complete the background check may affect application status of applicants or continued employment of current CSU employees who apply for the position.
The fall term begins in late August and ends in mid-December; the spring term runs from the beginning of February through the end of May.
Appointment and Salary
All part-time faculty appointments are made as Lecturers, under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the CSU system and the California Faculty Association. Initial appointments are for one semester only. Salaries vary depending upon qualifications and experience.

Regular performance evaluations of part-time lecturers are made by the department or program according to the terms of the adopted University Policy Statement (UPS 210.060). Positive reviews are based upon student ratings of instruction, course materials, and in-class observations made by a department personnel committee member or the department chairperson. The primary service responsibility of part-time faculty is to provide opportunities for student consultation outside of the regular class hours; on-line discussion periods or e-mail contacts shall not be a complete substitute for face-to-face consultation periods.
