Faculty - Communication

Classification Summary:
The full-time faculty at Jefferson College generally have a work week of 35-40 hours, of which 15 hours are scheduled for instruction, and 10 hours are scheduled for office hours. Given the diversity of faculty schedules (clinicals, laboratories, rehearsals, studios, etc.) which require additional contact hours, and the variety of institutional commitments beyond the 25 scheduled hours, it is clearly understood by all parties that faculty work activities exceed the scheduled hours, and that some of these additional hours are performed both on and off campus. In addition, all parties recognize that a flexible five-day work week (5 of 7 days) expectation is reasonable. Modification to the five-day work week for faculty with unusual regular day and night class schedules will require written approval of the President.

Minimum Education and/or Training and Experience:
Master’s degree in the subject matter field for assignments in transfer programs or hold a valid vocational certificate for assignments in vocational-technical programs.

Strongly prefer a candidate with training and experience in Mass Communication and/or Digital Media. Teaching experience, particularly at a community college or with first generation college students, preferred.
