General Duties:

Instructor needed for PHY 103 Physics Today and/or PHY 218 General Calculus Physics II with Lab. PHY 103 is a general survey course for non-STEM majors, covering topics including classical mechanics, electricity & magnetism, thermodynamics, optics, and modern physics. PHY 218 is the second in a three-course introductory calculus-based physics sequence for STEM majors, with content covering electricity & magnetism, thermodynamics, and radioactivity.
Each class consists of both lecture and lab components, so the instructor is responsible for preparing demonstrations in class and laboratory activities for students. Class sizes are typically small, with less than 10 students each. Classes are delivered in-person in a face-to-face format on Mondays and Thursdays, so this position requires in-person presence. The fall semester, during which the classes will be taught, runs from August 24 through December 14. The successful candidate will be responsible for conducting classes in accordance with Cecil College approved syllabi and the stipulations of the department. The successful candidate will also be responsible for meeting every scheduled class, including the final examination, for the full number of scheduled minutes in the room assigned. Any changes in meeting place or time must be reported to the Office of Academic Programs prior to the class meeting.


Master’s degree in Physics or equivalent graduate credits. Successful college-level teaching experience strongly preferred.
Only completed application including resume, letter of application and unofficial transcripts will receive consideration. Only applicants who are authorized to work in the United States will be eligible for hire.
