Part-Time Faculty Position at George Mason, Fall 2022

16 Mar 2022 6:05 PM | Cortney Hughes Rinker

The Global Affairs Program at George Mason University is searching for an instructor to teach GLOA 305: College-to-Career in Fall 2022. This is a one credit course that meets online on Tuesday, 7:20-9:10pm. The fall semester runs August 22 to December 14, 2022. GLOA 305 focuses on career choices and effective self-presentation for soon-to-be graduating students with an undergraduate major in Global Affairs. It explores how the skills and knowledge gained through the humanities and social sciences in particular can be leveraged for a successful transition to post-graduation employment or graduate school. The course is to balance teaching students practical skills that may include interfacing with Career Services (e.g., resume building, interviewing) with offering students opportunities to explore professional fields through networking and research (e.g., informational interviews, guest speakers, networking events in the class). We hope that the instructor will be able to take a lead in providing these opportunities for professionalization to the students enrolled. Global Affairs alumni work in a wide variety of positions in the D.C. region and outside of it (e.g., government, industry, non-profits, think tanks, consulting, academia) and several have secured external grants and fellowships. Pay is commensurate with experience. A minimum of a Master’s Degree is required. You can read more about the Global Affairs program here: https://globalaffairs.gmu.edu/. It is an interdisciplinary program housed in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at George Mason and one of the largest programs in terms of number of students in the college. Most of the core full-time faculty are trained as anthropologists. If interested, please send resume to Cortney Hughes Rinker, the Director of the Global Affairs Program, at chughe13@gmu.edu. If possible, we hope to fill the position by mid-April but will consider all inquiries until it is filled. Thank you!
