South College Online seeks candidates for a full-time faculty position in Physics. Successful candidates will have a terminal degree in a related field and preference will be given to candidates who have successfully taught Physics in the online format. The position is online remote and will report directly to the Department Chair for Health Science Online.
The Physics faculty will teach twenty (20) college-level courses per year covering general physics at the undergraduate level. Content will include:
General Physics I (lecture and laboratory)
Course content encompasses the fundamental concepts and principles of non-calculus based physics which include, but are not limited to, the following topics description and explanation of the laws of mechanics, motion, gravity, impulse and momentum, energy, the interaction of forces, work, power, friction, conservation laws, and the physics of fluids. The laboratory course has been designed to be taken concurrently with, and to supplement the subject matter covered in the lecture.
General Physics II (lecture and laboratory)
Course content encompasses the fundamental concepts and principles of a non-calculus based continuation of General Physics I that describes and explains the nature of fluids, wave motion (both sound and electromagnetic), temperature and thermodynamics, the kinetic theory of gasses, electrostatics, electrical currents, magnetism, and optics. The laboratory course has been designed to be taken concurrently with, and to supplement the subject matter covered in the lecture.
Responsibilities include facilitating discussions effectively, providing live and recorded lectures as necessary, and guiding virtual or at-home lab assignments. Note that the lectures and laboratories have separate course codes but together constitute a single course for teaching load (i.e. one Physics I Lecture and one Physics I Lab count as one of the twenty courses taught). The Physics faculty may also teach other science courses as credentialed but will be expected to predominantly teach Physics for most of their teaching load.
The Physics faculty will maintain student grade and attendance records for all courses taught, coordinate updates to the master course shell (Blueprint) in Canvas, maintain and update course syllabi, choose instructional materials, and supervise adjunct faculty teaching the Physics courses online.
All faculty are required to participate in department activities, including committee meetings, curriculum discussion, student solutions management, and other service activities. Additional duties may be assigned as needed.
Applicants must have a terminal degree in physics with successful completion of a minimum of 18 hours of graduate coursework in directly related coursework including Physics or other related courses. Preference will be given to applicants with prior successful online teaching experience.
