Position Details

Position Description

The School of Nursing & Health Studies at the University of Washington Bothell (UWB) seeks to fill multiple positions for Lecturer Part-Time faculty.  A commitment to excellence in teaching at the undergraduate level is essential, as is a commitment to support and enhance learning for diverse populations.  We are seeking up to two candidates to join our faculty on a part-time basis (50% - 100%) for a 9-month service period with opportunities to teach during the summer.  Positions in this title are non-tenure track and not promotion eligible.  Appointments in these positions will be annual appointments and may range in years (1-3), depending on school needs and budget. Reappointments are contingent upon instructional needs, performance, and funding. The start date is September 16, 2023.  We encourage applicants whose interests align with our commitment to fostering diversity and inclusivity to apply.

The faculty hire in this position has an expectation of teaching at least 5 courses over the three quarters (at least one every quarter) of the regular academic year with teaching assignments focused in the nursing program (RN-BSN and MN), with possible needs in Health Studies as well. Critical topics for these courses include, but are not limited to: social justice and health, program planning, community health nursing, critical evaluation of nursing literature and application to evidence-based practice, nursing pedagogy, and epidemiology. Some courses require the candidate to be currently licensed or eligible for licensure as a registered nurse in Washington.

The base salary range for this position will have a Full Time Monthly Rate range of $7500-$8800 per month with a minimum FTE of 50%.  FTE will be determined by course assignment ranging from 5-9 courses per academic year. For example, 5 courses would equal 55% FTE and a monthly salary range of $4125 - 4840.  This position will be benefits-eligible.

The successful candidates will be dynamic scholars and educators, whose work bridges theory and practice of health care and systems, including nursing and public health. The successful candidates will use lecture modalities and active learning teaching techniques, or will have the willingness to learn alternative teaching modalities that ensure the best results.  The successful candidates will enjoy working independently yet are interested in sharing ideas collaboratively. The ideal candidate will have previous college-level teaching and relevant clinical experience, including course delivery using hybrid modalities.  Doctoral (eg, PhD, DNP, DrPH) degrees are desirable, though may be substituted by appropriate pedagogical and work experience.
