Santa Rosa Junior College is currently accepting applications to establish a pool for adjunct teaching assignments. Adjunct teaching assignments may be temporary, part-time and/or on-call and may be immediate or as needed. This job posting is not for a specific assignment or for a full-time faculty position.
Candidates selected for the pool and offered an assignment must be located near enough to the District or plan on moving near the District to accept part-time, substitute or emergency assignments. Candidates who are recommended for the pool after committee interviews will only be added to the pool for disciplines interviewed and qualified for (not necessarily all disciplines included in this job posting where multiple disciplines are listed). Assignments could involve full or partial assignment at any of the District's sites or off-campus locations, and could involve any combination of day or evening classes, with office hours being mandatory.
Applications are accepted for adjunct faculty pools on a continuous basis. If the department has an immediate need to add candidates to their pool, they will review applications. If the department does not have an immediate need to add candidates to their pool, all applications will remain on file until the need arises or up to one year. If selected for interview, candidates will be invited to interview with a Screening Committee. The Screening Committee may include representatives from the Faculty, the Administration, the Classified Staff, the Associated Students, and the Board of Trustees. If recommended for the pool, references will be checked at any point beyond the interview. If selected for the pool, candidates remain in the pool for a period of four years.

The Philosophy, Humanities and Religion Department is dedicated to providing the highest quality instruction in our respective disciplines. The Department is committed to meeting the educational needs of our students by offering courses which reflect the diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds of our students, by providing general education and elective courses for transfer and for occupational students, and by serving the educational needs of the larger community. Our Department has seven (7) full-time and twenty-two (22) adjunct faculty. Offices are located in the Emeritus Building on Elliot Avenue. Day and evening classes are offered at both the Santa Rosa and Petaluma campuses. We offer a select number of online courses.
The Religious Studies Program is dedicated to the study of sacred texts, such as the Bible, and other writings and expressions of religious history and human imagination. Respecting the secular nature of the college, and recognizing the traditional separation of church and state, we approach the study of religion with the highest standards of fairness and academic discipline. For our students, we seek to open all texts with a well-integrated critique based on literary, historical, and social analysis, as we seek to expose the core genius in various religious traditions, especially as they have contributed to the shaping of the general culture.
