The Department of Biology in the College of Science &
Engineering occasionally has openings for part-time temporary
adjunct instructors. Applying for a part-time teaching appointment
in Biology would add the applicant to a pool which is available to
the departmental search committee for consideration in case the
need arises for the 2022-2023 academic year.
Please note that this posting is not intended to convey that such a
need currently exists.
The TCU College of Science & Engineering (CSE) encompasses 10
departments (Biology, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Computer
Science, Engineering, Environmental Sciences, Geological Sciences,
Mathematics, Nutritional Sciences, Physics & Astronomy, and
Psychology) as well as the Ranch Management Program, which offers a
one-year certificate program. The College is also home to the
Pre-Health Professions Institute, the Karyn Purvis Institute for
Child Development, the Institute of Behavioral Research, the
Institute for Ranch Management and the Monnig Meteorite Gallery.
The College is the second largest at TCU in terms of both
undergraduate enrollment and number of majors. The College contains
a disproportional percentage of high achieving students, as
evidenced by the fact that almost one-half the students in the
Honors College have majors in the College of Science &
Engineering. Research opportunities abound for undergraduates, with
over 40 percent of majors engaging in a substantive experience
during which they work one-on-one with their faculty mentor. The
College also has five doctoral programs and 16 master’s programs as
well as two graduate certificate programs. The College faculty are
true teacher/scholars, meaning that instruction and research are
viewed as complementary and not competing activities.
University & Fort Worth Description
Founded in 1873, Texas Christian University sits on 302 acres
nestled in a primarily residential part of Fort Worth, just minutes

Currently, TCU enrolls more than 10,200 undergraduates and 1,700
graduate students. Twenty-eight percent of students self-identify
as a member of a minority group, five percent are international
students, and forty-five percent are from out-of-state. Our
students are supported by more than 2,200 faculty and staff. The
University has more than 700 full-time faculty members and is a top
100 National University as classified by US News and World Report
and has a Carnegie Classification of R2: Doctoral Universities –
High Research Activity.
At TCU, diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) are an educational
imperative directly tied to the University mission, vision, and
strategic plan. Fulfilling TCU’s mission to develop ethical leaders
and critical thinkers in a global community depends on the
University’s ability to attract and retain students, faculty, and
staff from diverse backgrounds. A diverse and inclusive campus
leads to innovation, broadened perspective, and
understanding—values that are foundational aspects of higher
education. For the fourth consecutive year, TCU has earned the
Higher Education Excellence in Diversity Award, which highlights
ongoing commitment to build a comprehensive DEI strategy that
aligns with core values and creates a campus culture where everyone
is respected and included.
ABOUT FORT WORTH
Like TCU, Fort Worth has the approachable, friendly charm of a
smaller town, but offers the amenities, cultural activities,
diversity and unique personality of a much larger city. Fort Worth,
Texas, is the 13th largest city in the United States with an
ever-growing population nearing 1 million. Fort Worth and TCU have
grown together in a nearly 150-year relationship. You’ll find that
many Horned Frogs remain here after graduation, thanks to the
region’s thriving job market. Fort Worth is part of the Dallas-Fort
Worth metropolitan area, the fourth largest metropolitan area in
the United States, and the number 1 tourist destination in Texas.
In 2018, bizjournals.com ranked Fort Worth the 7th most affordable
city to live and work in the United States and U.S. News and World
Report named Fort Worth one of the Best Places to Live. Fort Worth,
Dallas and Arlington all rank among the top 25 most diverse cities
in the country.
Fort Worth is known for its vast array of cultural, educational and
entertainment opportunities. The city boasts three world class art
museums—the Kimbell Art Museum, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth
and the Amon Carter Museum of American Art. The Bass Performance
