Science Department - Short- and Long-Term Faculty Coverage

Wallingford, CT

Choate Rosemary Hall seeks to identify qualified candidates to be on-call for short-term and long-term coverage throughout the 2021-2022 school year in the science department. Candidates must have a minimum of three years of teaching experience and at least an undergraduate degree in their teaching field. Candidates must be able to demonstrate the ways in which inclusive and equitable practices inform their approach to instruction and course design. In addition, the ability to teach classes ranging from introductory to advanced is highly desirable. Experience teaching in an online context where classes are primarily synchronous is a plus, but not required.

Both short- and long-term faculty coverage will be paid by the class. Short-term is defined as any coverage up to two consecutive weeks (6 classes). Long-term is defined as any coverage over two consecutive weeks. Applicants should indicate their preference for being considered for short-term, long-term, or both in their cover letter. If you are interested in applying to more than one discipline, you must apply separately to each posting or email a request to Kathy White to copy your file into an additional discipline’s folder.

Applicants must be dynamic individuals who are passionate about their discipline, collaborative and innovative in their approach to teaching, and who embrace and support the diversity of our student body through their curriculum and pedagogy.

Choate is committed to a diverse faculty, staff, and student body. Candidates from underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.
