2024-25 AY Lecturer Pool - Communication Studies

Job No: 537675
Work Type: Instructional Faculty - Temporary/Lecturer
Location: Sacramento
Categories: Unit 3 - CFA - California Faculty Association, Temporary, Part Time, Faculty - Communications/Journalism



DEPARTMENT: Communication Studies

POSITION TITLE: Lecturer Pool - Communication Studies

POSITION DETAILS:

Communication Studies is a broad-based discipline concerned with the exchange of messages in interpersonal and mediated situations and with the impact of such exchanges on society. Courses focus on understanding the communication process and developing skills to communicate effectively. The Department offers a wide range of courses in interpersonal, group, and organizational communication, rhetorical theory and criticism, public relations, mass communication, journalism, and film.

Duties of a part-time lecturer include instruction, class preparation, grading, and office hours. Other duties may be assigned based on departmental needs. Course assignments, including dates, time, and modality, are made by the Department Chair under the direction of the College Dean.

Part-time lecturers are instructional faculty with conditional appointments based on enrollment and budget. Hires from the pool of applicants are made when there are instructional needs to fill coursework offered by an academic department based on changing enrollment patterns, changes to tenure-track faculty assignments, and other factors that cannot be addressed with our existing faculty. Initial appointments are typically for one semester, but occasionally academic year initial appointments are made. Appointments may be renewed based on department needs, funding, and performance. Often appointments are made just prior to the start of the semester.

Rank and Salary

Initial rank and salary for lecturer faculty are based on professional and/or teaching experience and educational background and are determined by the hiring department. Most new lecturers are hired at the Lecturer A or B rank. As of July 2023, the classification salary ranges for the respective ranks are:

Lecturer A: $5,007 - $6,359

Lecturer B: $5,925 - $12,594

Lecturer C: $6,500 - $13,831

Lecturer D: $8,184 - $14,487

The salary ranges indicated are based on a "full-time rate" (15 weighted teaching units [WTUs]). A semester's worth of compensation is made up of six (6) payments of the given amount. To calculate your salary for a semester, the base rate would be pro-rated based on the units worked out of 15 WTUs.

If you were a Lecturer A assigned 3 units at the minimum salary, your pay would be structured as follows:

$5,007 x 3/15 (3 units out of a possible 15 units total) = $1001.40 x 6 checks = $6,008.40 total for 3 units/semester.

REQUIRED QUALIFICATIONS: Master's degree in communication or a related discipline.


PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS: Doctorate in communication or a related discipline and/or teaching experience.

APPLICANT INSTRUCTIONS:

New applicants are required to submit:

1. Cover letter

2. Current Curriculum Vita (CV)/Resume

3. Unofficial transcripts of highest degree

4. Three letters of recommendation. Applicants will need to combine their letters of recommendation into one file and upload under "List of References.”

5. Use the template to create the Lecturer Course Qualifications document which lists the course(s) you believe you are qualified to teach. Course listings can be found here: (https://catalog.csus.edu/courses-a-z/)

6. Complete the Preference Form with days and times you are available to teach. Please click the link to download the form.

Incomplete files will not be considered. After establishment of the required qualifications, lecturers in the hiring pool will be asked each semester to submit teaching preferences, subject to further review of qualifications for the particular courses requested.
