The Advanced Academic Programs division provides high-quality master's degrees and post-baccalaureate education to students in the mid-Atlantic region and online.

We invite applications to fill an opening for a non-tenure-track, adjunct teaching position. The adjunct faculty will teach one or more courses per year in the following topics in either an onsite, online or combined format.
The following fields are preferred:
This course is a solutions-based conservation course focusing on key issues in the marine environment such as fisheries management, destruction of marine habitats, plastic pollution, ocean acidification and coral bleaching, and the impacts of marine engineering, ship traffic, and ocean drilling. Conservation of mangroves, reefs, and other threatened environments will be discussed as well as sustainable solutions and policies to address these issues.
The ideal candidate will have an advanced degree in a relevant field, with a master's degree being a minimum, but a Ph.D. preferred. Teaching experience, especially online and with professional students, and work experience within the relevant science fields are also desired.

College-level teaching experience is required and a proven record of effective online teaching and familiarity with Blackboard (or a similar learning management system) are strong advantages.
