BECNO is currently accepting applications for adjunct positions on our faculty. We are open to developing new and interdisciplinary courses from all departments. Fields in which current students have expressed interest: language studies (French and Spanish), math/statistics, anthropology, psychology/ cognitive sciences, global studies, Asian American studies, music theory, and environmental sciences.
For a teaching scholar, post-doc, or an emerging academic at end of graduate study, teaching at Bard Early College provides an opportunity to design and teach a course in a seminar-style learning environment, with a bright and committed cohort of students. Our stipend per class is competitive, and we provide training and mentorship to assist professors in developing an engaging teaching practice custom built for our students. In the 2018-19 school year our campus will offer classes both in the morning and afternoon, offering some flexibility with class times and dates. We also ask our adjunct faculty to allot one hour of office hours per course.
