Job Description

The Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism at the University of Southern California (USC) is seeking an adjunct instructor for a new professional skills-building program for master’s students that addresses a critical competency for 21st century professionals - the ability to create, sustain and thrive within diverse work environments. Managing Complexity in Diverse Organizations (MCDO) is an eight-week online program delivered year-round in collaboration with Minerva Project.

Instructors will facilitate eight weekly, 90-minute long active learning-based sessions and an orientation. Successful class sessions are reliant on the instructor’s ability to establish a sense of belonging and community, while skillfully facilitating important but sometimes challenging conversations between groups of master’s students from diverse backgrounds. In total, instructors will commit approximately 55 hours per semester for training and practice classes, teaching and preparation, and weekly team meetings. Trainings, classes and meetings will be conducted online. Instructors must have a webcamera-enabled personal computer for all sessions. Tablets and mobile devices are not sufficient to fully engage with the learning environment.

Requirements for consideration include a B.A., B.S., M.S., or an M.A. degree in a related field.  Previous teaching, group facilitation or professional coaching experience in related topic areas are preferable. For some courses, outstanding professional experience may be substituted for academic credentials.

The hourly range for this position is $36.37 – $45.46. When extending an offer of employment, the University of Southern California considers factors such as (but not limited to) the scope and responsibilities of the position, the candidate’s work experience, education/training, key skills, federal, state and local laws, contractual stipulations, as well as external market and organizational considerations.

USC reserves the “Adjunct” 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.

Applicants should send a letter describing their background, interests and areas of expertise, and an up-to-date resume or curriculum vitae through the Careers at USC website.

The USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism is among the nation’s leading institutions devoted to the study of communication, journalism and public relations.  With an enrollment of 2,400 undergraduate and graduate students, USC Annenberg scholars, both students and faculty, are defining these fields for the 21st century and beyond.
