The UNT Chemistry Department seeks a full-time, non-tenure track faculty member at the rank of Senior Lecturer to contribute to our General Chemistry and/or Organic Chemistry curricula. The primary need is in our high-enrollment General Chemistry and Organic Chemistry courses, which have over 1700 students (for General Chemistry) or over 700 students (for Organic Chemistry) enrolled in a typical long semester. These serve as important gateway courses for students in STEM majors and have a major impact on students’ ability to successfully attain their educational goals.
The changing needs of students and the altered educational landscape in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic have greatly increased the importance of innovative and non-traditional approaches to teaching, including active-learning courses and online course delivery. The new faculty member will play an important role in developing these and other strategies for improving student learning outcomes and student success as our student population becomes ever more diverse and adapts to a changing world. The new Senior Lecturer will be a full member of the faculty and will have opportunities to participate in departmental committees and other service activities.
