Pellissippi State hosting adjunct faculty recruiting fairs

Pellissippi State Community College has scheduled adjunct faculty recruiting fairs at two of its site campuses: the Blount County Campus on March 27 and the Strawberry Plains Campus on April 22.

“Pellissippi State relies heavily on a professional, experienced, well-trained body of part-time instructors,” said Ted Lewis, vice president of Academic Affairs.

Interested individuals are invited to each recruiting fair, where they can expect information sessions, meetings with department representatives and an overview of the application process. Both events are 6:30-8 p.m.

Pellissippi State adjunct faculty in most subject areas are required to have a master’s degree and at least 18 hours of graduate hours in the subject they wish to teach. Positions are open in Accounting, Chemistry, Computer Science and Information Technology, Economics, English, History, Mathematics, Microbiology, Spanish and Theatre, among others.

Candidates for adjunct faculty positions in three areas—Video Production Technology, Photography and Communication Graphics Technology—require a bachelor’s degree and three years’ work experience. To be considered for an adjunct position in Clinical Nursing requires an RN with MSN and three years’ clinical experience.
