Application & Search Procedures

 If you are applying for more than one position, you must submit a separate, complete online application packet for each position. See How to Apply below. Please note that, with the exception of part-time ongoing positions, applications are accepted only for posted vacancies.

Full-Time Positions

Anyone interested in applying for a full-time Faculty or Administrator/Staff position must submit a complete online application packet. Please review the “Application Procedures” section of the “Intent to Employ” for a description of a complete application packet. Complete application packets must be submitted by the deadline established for that position. Failure to submit a complete application packet by the deadline will eliminate the possibility of an interview.

Search committees are appointed for each available position. The search committee reviews all application packets to determine which are complete and who meets the minimum qualifications for the position. The committee then interviews each qualified applicant and recommends up to three candidates to the President/ appropriate Administrator, who conducts the final interviews.

Part-Time Instructor Positions

The hiring of part-time instructors is coordinated through the respective divisions and is dependent upon the anticipated or actual enrollment for each semester. The qualifications for part-time instructors are the same as those for full-time faculty members. Generally, an instructor must have at least a Master’s degree with eighteen

(18) graduate semester hours in field; though, for non-transfer and activity courses, these qualifications are relaxed. When submitting an application packet, please include a resume’ and graduate transcripts (unofficial copies will be accepted, but official transcripts must be on file once an offer of employment has been made).

Adjunct Instructor Positions

Adjunct Instructor positions are only for applicants who have retired from Jefferson State Community College. If you do not fit this qualification, your application packet will not be

submitted to the respective division.

Part Time Hourly L-19 Positions

Temporary Positions

Temporary positions are one year assignments. Before the end of the one-year assignment, if the College determines that a position is warranted, the position will be posted/searched as a regular position. A search committee will not be appointed for temporary appointments and interviews may or may not be conducted. Temporary positions can be found under Part-Time Faculty and/or Part-Time Staff postings.
