POOL - Lecturer

Applied Behavioral Science
Employee Class: 

Position Overview

The Department of Applied Behavioral Science at the University of Kansas invites qualified scholars and professionals to submit online applications to the lecturer pool to be considered for part-time and/or full-time, temporary, lecturer positions. Positions vary and are dependent upon the need for instructors, if any, for courses being offered each semester. These are non-tenure-track members of the faculty whose primary role is instructional.

The courses include: child development; marriage and family; curriculum development; parenting; behavior analysis; clinical child psychology; and infant, toddler, and early childhood practicum supervision. The department accepts applications at any time, but normally makes appointments for Fall semester in May and June, and for Spring semester in November and December. Increases in enrollment, resignations, and emergencies may create openings that are filled just before classes begin.

Application materials will be reviewed by the faculty and placed in a pool for consideration for developing and/or teaching undergraduate or graduate courses in Applied Behavioral Science consistent with departmental instructional needs.

The successful candidate must have appropriate authorization to work in the U.S. before employment begins.
