ADJUNCT FACULTY HIRING PROCESS AT CSPP SAN FRANCISCO
Thank you for your interest in adjunct teaching positions in the Clinical Psychology Psy.D. and Ph.D. Programs at the California School of Professional Psychology (CSPP) at Alliant International University, San Francisco Campus. The adjunct faculty hiring process on our campus includes the following:
1) Candidates must first submit a brief application (see the attached 2-page application), and send an electronic copy of the completed application to the Program’s Academic and Administrative Support staff person, Rolanda Rogers (firstname.lastname@example.org), along with all of the supporting materials requested in the application form (CV, student evaluations if available, 2 letters of recommendation).
2) Except during winter recess and holidays (December 15 to Jan 3), we will acknowledge receipt of your materials by email within 5 days.
3) If your application meets our initial selection criteria, you will be interviewed for an adjunct faculty position. The committee may request a brief teaching sample. The initial selection criteria include: (a) a doctoral degree in psychology or a related field from an accredited university; (b) excellence or promise of excellence in teaching the specific courses you selected on the application form; (c) licensure as a psychologist in California if your courses involve case material; and (d) prior teaching/supervision experience (preferred), with documentation such as copies of standardized teaching evaluations from students or a letter from the program director or Dean where you previously taught.
4) We process most applications and conduct most interviews only between September and May. However, we may conduct interviews from June to August, as needed.
5) After the interview, you will be notified as to whether and what specific courses in our curriculum you were approved to teach. For those courses, you will be put in the "pool" of potential instructors whom we will call when an opening for that course occurs. The more flexible you can be in terms of times of the week you can teach, the more likely you will be hired when an opening occurs.
Please note that it is impossible for us to predict more than a semester in advance when a certain course will become available. We give first preference to current core faculty members who need courses in their workloads, and secondly to adjunct faculty members who are doing excellent work. There is no guarantee that you will be hired to teach a course even if you were approved to do so. However, it is quite likely that at some point, you will be asked to teach one or more courses for which you were approved.
6) If you relocate and wish to remain in the pool of approved instructors, please be sure to notify us of your new contact information.
Thank you again for your interest, and I look forward to receiving your materials.
