Part-time Lecturer Pool in Engineering & Computer Science
The College of Engineering and Computer Science (ECS) at California State University, Fullerton (CSUF), seeks applications from highly qualified individuals to a pool from which the department can select candidates for teaching a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses in its five administrative units. Most teaching needs occur at last minute when a regular faculty member is unavailable to teach. Also, an adjunct faculty candidate with specialization not represented in the college can propose a graduate level or senior level elective courses.
Some of the classes are offered either late afternoon or evening making it feasible for working professionals while some courses are more appropriate for those of you with flexibility with your primary work since they are offered during the day time.
Further information regarding the college, its academic units and its curriculum may be obtained from the following website: http://fullerton.edu/ecs
