Lecturer/Assistant Professor of Instruction


The Department of Mathematics at The University of Texas at Austin has openings for a number of non-tenure-track (Lecturer/Assistant Professor of Instruction) teaching positions to begin Fall 2024. Primary duties are teaching undergraduate courses, and a full-time load consists of three courses per long semester.

These are one-year positions with the possibility of renewal subject to performance and departmental needs. The number of positions depends on enrollment, so continued employment is not guaranteed. However, successful Lecturers/Assistant Professors of Instruction are routinely renewed from year to year.
