The Leventhal School of Accounting in the Marshall School of Business is accepting applications for part-time, non-tenure track faculty positions for the 2021-2022 academic year.
USC defines two categories of appointment for faculty working less than fulltime. Â These are âadjunctâ and âpart-time.â Â The difference in the categories is primarily based on the nature of a faculty memberâs professional work outside of teaching at USC.
Definition of Adjunct Faculty Â
USC reserves the âAdjunct Facultyâ appointment for faculty teaching less than full-time at USC, who are employed full-time in a primary profession or career elsewhere. Adjunct faculty typically teach only one course per year but, in exceptional cases, may teach one course per semester, if approved by the dean. For example, a full-time freelance artist, a lawyer employed full-time at a firm, a pharmacist employed full-time by a pharmacy, or a consultant/entrepreneur/CFO who teaches 1-2 classes a year for USC would be considered an adjunct faculty member.Â Â A retired person who considers themselves fully retired, but teaches 1-2 classes a year for USC, could be considered Adjunct Faculty or Part-time Faculty.Â
Definition of Part-time Faculty Â
USC reserves the âPart-time Facultyâ appointment for faculty teaching less than full-time who are not employed full-time in a primary position or career elsewhere. For example, a therapist with a part-time private practice, a musician who books performances on what they consider to be a part-time basis, a biologist who has a part-time job in a lab, or someone retired from a career who teaches less than full-time at USC could be considered âPart-time Faculty.âÂ Part-timeÂ Faculty under this definition may teach a maximum of 3 courses per semester, and we hope to limit that to 2 courses per semester as full-time faculty numbers increase.
Areas of anticipated teaching needs include topics in taxation including corporate taxation; provisions (income tax accounting and auditing); tax accounting methods; mergers and acquisitions (advanced corporate tax); and tax consolidations. Â Â Â Preferred qualifications for non-tenure track and part-time positions include an advanced degree (masters, Ph.D., J.D., etc.), relevant experience teaching at the college/university level, practical experience in professional accounting or taxation, and superior communication skills. Â Preference may be given to applicants who have completed the AACSB Bridge Teaching Program. (http://aacsb.edu/bridge)
Qualified candidates should submit on-line a letter of application and a resume or CV. Â Please indicate in letter any preferences or limitations for teaching evening courses, daytime courses, on-campus courses, and online courses.
