Job Posting: Honors Program Lecturer at NKU
The Honors Program at NKU seeks applicants for a full-time position in the Honors Program at the non-tenure-track Lecturer level beginning August 2013. A Master’s degree is required. Disciplinary specialty is open but excellence in teaching is the highest priority. Of particular interest are candidates who can teach interdisciplinary, discussion-based courses where students in any major can develop the methods and insights to critically examine social issues and be inspired to reflect on contemporary topics in innovative ways.
The successful candidate will be required to teach a full load of four, 3 credit hour seminars per semester. In addition, the successful candidates will assist with recruitment of students and outreach events, as well as serve on committees. These and additional duties will be determined by need and in consultation with the director.
The Honors Program provides high-achieving, curious, motivated students from all majors the opportunity to excel and become University Honors Scholars and leaders. Completion of the program includes five seminar-style courses and a capstone project. The capstone project is an independent study that can include research, application, and creative presentation of the material. Outside the classroom students study abroad, participate in service learning projects, and have the opportunity to apply what they are learning in the classroom in real life situations.
Applications should include cover letter, curriculum vitae, sample syllabi, and a list of three professional references with complete contact information. Review of applications will begin immediately. Applications will be accepted until position is filled. Application materials should be sent to:
