New College invites applications for an open-rank clinical faculty member to teach and mentor students in several New College undergraduate programs, beginning Spring 2022. We seek a candidate with a multidisciplinary background who has the credentials to teach undergraduate courses in environmental science and ecology. Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) accreditation requires 18 graduate credit hours or more in the teaching discipline.

The successful candidate will teach environmental science courses (including BIOL 1132 - Environmental Science) within two New College programs: North Texas NOW! (a dual credit program in partnership with Frisco ISD) and B.S. Project Design and Analysis. Both programs are cohort-based with project-based learning curricula that require creativity and collaboration among faculty as well as cross-course multidisciplinary integration. Priority will be given to candidates who can also contribute toward other New College programs: B.S. Applied Project Design and Analysis, B.S. in Industrial Distribution, and B.A.A.S. in Applied Arts and Sciences.
The candidate in this position may also have the opportunity to contribute to building new degree programs.

Details for current New College programs can be found on the New College website and UNT catalog:

The successful candidate will be an innovative and collaborative educator with the capacity to foster student success, both within the classroom and in mentoring relationships, with a demonstrated capacity to engage individuals across a spectrum of backgrounds, ages, levels of experience, and career aspirations. Applicants are expected to have evidence of teaching excellence and demonstrated success with a diverse and multicultural student body.
This position will be based at UNT’s regional campus located in Frisco, Texas. This effort is the next phase in UNT’s partnership with the City of Frisco to create a new branch campus focused on career readiness for the 21st Century. UNT at Frisco supports 20 plus undergraduate and graduate degrees and more than 1,700 students. The first building for the new campus, a 100,000 square foot $115 million dollar facility, is scheduled for completion in fall of 2022. Faculty will be based at UNT’s regional campus but may also teach at the Denton campus or online. Night and weekend classes may be included in the teaching load.

Clinical faculty at UNT teach 3 courses per semester with negotiated course load reductions possible for variable recruiting, professional activities, program advising, course development, assisting with accreditation, providing career guidance to students, or other professional development and service activities. Actual course loads are assigned based on program needs and determined by the Chair of New College. Clinical faculty are also expected to engage in scholarly and professional activity as well as service to the department and college. This position is a non-tenure track, 9-month appointment. The initial appointment is 3-years and is renewable. There may be opportunities for summer teaching, depending on program needs. Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience. Review of applicants will begin immediately and is expected to move quickly.
