The Lewis Honors College at the University of Kentucky is currently seeking a Lecturer or Senior Lecturer for a nine-month appointment, non-tenure track position. This position will be responsible for teaching six courses per academic year (typically three per semester) of Honors-level courses at the undergraduate level. One course (two sections per semester) will be the Foundations Seminar and one course per semester will be an Honors course in the Lecturer’s discipline.

The Foundations Seminar will be taken by all Lewis Honors College students and will be an intensive, interdisciplinary seminar that will emphasize the development of analytical reading, writing, and speaking skills through the lens of examining the relationship of the individual to society. Students will examine human thought and imagination from various perspectives, including philosophy, history, literature, science, religion, and art. The course will pay particular attention to how the main branches of academic inquiry-humanities, natural sciences, social sciences, and arts and creativity-address the relationship between individuals and the social worlds in which they find themselves.

The Lecturer position may include responsibilities for special programs on an as-needed basis. Typically, the distribution of effort will be 75% teaching, 18% program administration, 5% research/scholarship, and 2% professional development.

Please include a CV and cover letter along with application. In addition, please include the names and contact information for three references when prompted in the application. This information may be used to solicit reference letters within the employment system.

Applications will be reviewed beginning January 4th, 2019, and continue until the position is filled.
