Description:

The University of Pikeville is seeking applicants for a full-time, nine-month faculty appointment in the field of criminal justice starting August 2018. Rank and salary will be based on qualifications. Applicants must have a strong commitment to teaching in a small university setting and the ability to work effectively with others in a collegial environment dedicated to student learning.

The successful applicant will be a generalist who is prepared to teach a broad range of criminal justice courses including policing and corrections at the undergraduate level. While most classes are offered face-to-face, the University does offer classes through other modalities including hybrid and fully online. Faculty may have part of their teaching load assigned to these other modalities. The position also requires advising undergraduate students, providing service to the college and community, assisting with departmental activities, program recruiting, and continuing professional growth and development. A minimum of a master's degree in criminal justice and at least ten years of law enforcement experience is required. The J.D. degree alone is not sufficient for this position. Undergraduate teaching experience is desired.

The University of Pikeville offers a competitive salary commensurate with qualifications and experience. UPIKE offers a competitive benefits package including medical, dental, vision, and life insurance, telemedicine, long-term disability, tuition waivers, a 403(b) retirement plan, and HSA, FSA, & dependent care accounts. UPIKE also offers a generous holiday schedule and paid leave program.
