The exact day(s)/time(s), are determined in consultation with the adjunct faculty member.

This position is part-time and is not benefits eligible. This is not a salaried position; adjunct faculty are paid on a per-course basis in the quarter(s) when they teach. Applicants must currently be authorized to work in the U.S.
