Visiting Assistant Professor of Graduate Studies, College of Aviation – (180464)
This is an excellent opportunity to help shape the next generation of rising leaders in the aeronautics industry while forming part of a dynamic team of scholars. This full-time, short-term faculty appointment is with the School of Graduate Studies in the College of Aviation at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s beautiful Daytona Beach Campus. Our school has 170 culturally diverse students pursuing M.S. Aeronautics (MSA) and Ph.D. in Aviation degrees. Many of our students are currently employed in the aviation industry or have previous aviation working experience. The teaching position and contract is expected to begin in January 2019 or August 2019.
We are hiring one visiting faculty member to spend a year with us to help teach statistics; research methods; and potentially a couple of aeronautics courses, mostly with our Master’s of Science in Aeronautics (MSA) Program, but also assisting with doctoral dissertations. The MSA is taught via traditional classroom courses in face-to-face modality. The position is focused primarily on teaching and will require a set number of office hours in addition to the time spent in classroom instruction. The Visiting Assistant Professor will be expected to teach 24 graduate credit hours (six MSA courses or equivalent) over 9-months of the academic year (January through mid-May and mid-August through December), with the summer months either free or teaching courses for additional compensation, plus a service obligation of assisting with the statistics and research methods used by students in doctoral dissertations. Courses may be taught during business hours or evening hours, subject to instructor and student availability. Opportunities exist to participate in faculty research projects if so desired, to include the use of the 28 laboratories in the college. The campus has a Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence to assist new and experienced instructors in the science and art of creating learning.
