The Department of Communication Studies invites applications for two Lecturer positions beginning in August of 2023. These lecturer positions focus on pedagogy at the freshman and sophomore levels. The individuals filling these positions will be required to teach 24 hours (normally 8 classes) a year, at least 18 hours (or 6 classes) of which must be drawn from the pool of our three basic communication courses. Successful candidates will be committed to institutional and departmental service. Candidates with an interest in contributing to departmental initiatives involving diversity and inclusion are especially valued. Successful candidates will also display intellectual leadership with a bearing on the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL), especially as it relates to the discipline of Communication Studies and will possess a demonstrated effectiveness at teaching in at least two of the three modalities of in- person, hybrid, and fully online instruction. Finally, successful candidates will be invited to participate in Baruch’s “Inclusive Pedagogy Workshop,” and CUNY’s “Innovative Teaching Academy.”

Lecturer positions are subject to annual review for five years. Reviews focus primarily on the quality of the instructor’s teaching and on his or her contributions to service. After the fifth consecutive successful review, the lecturer is offered a Certificate of Continuous Employment, a tenure-like status that affords him or her permanent employment at the college without the need for further review.
