PRIORITY FILING DEADLINE
Wednesday, February 5, 2014
(initial screening date - open until filled)
Santa Rosa Junior College is seeking Mathematics Instructors with demonstrated instructional skills to join an outstanding team of faculty, staff and instructional administrators in providing high quality services to our district, our community, and most importantly, our students. There are four full-time, regular contract positions in the Mathematics Department at Santa Rosa Junior College, beginning Fall Semester, August 2014. Three (3) positions will be located at the Petaluma Campus and one (1) position will be located at the Santa Rosa Campus. The Petaluma Campus is located in Petaluma, approximately 17 miles south of the Santa Rosa Campus. Appointments are contingent upon funding and Board approval.
The Mathematics Department of Santa Rosa Junior College is a dynamic, diverse, and collegial group of individuals who have great enthusiasm for the teaching and learning of mathematics. The instructors believe in maintaining high standards and strive for student success. All of the 25 full-time and many adjunct instructors are involved in community activities that support mathematics education and are also active members of various mathematics organizations. The department incorporates the use of graphing calculators and other technology for courses at and above the level of Intermediate Algebra. Resources include administrative office assistance, a mathematics computer laboratory, and a college tutorial center.
The emphasis of these positions is the teaching of mathematics courses ranging from elementary algebra through linear algebra, differential equations and statistics to a diverse student population. Teaching responsibilities include approximately 15 hours per week of instruction, plus office hours for student counseling and contact. In addition to teaching responsibilities, these positions require involvement in departmental and campus-wide committees.
SRJC offers courses at the Santa Rosa and Petaluma Campuses, at the Southwest Center, and in online formats as well. While these assignments are primarily for the Santa Rosa Campus, please note that the District reserves the right of assignment to any location, and that assignments could involve any combination of day or evening classes with mandatory weekly Student Consultation Time. Instructors assume responsibility for maintaining currency in the field and for updating existing courses and developing new curricula; participating in the assessment of student learning outcomes; managing labs and Tutorial Centers; and participating in community outreach on behalf of the College.
The SRJC Petaluma Campus currently enrolls nearly 6,000 students in credit and non-credit courses. Each semester, approximately 350 course sections in nearly 60 disciplines are offered, including many majors and certificates as well as all of the courses necessary for transfer to UC, CSU, or to complete SRJCs general education requirements. SRJC has been offering courses in the Petaluma area for nearly 50 years. The original Petaluma Center operated primarily as an evening program until the completion in 1995 of permanent facilities on its current site, and was granted campus status by the SRJC Board of Trustees and the California Community College Chancellors Office in the spring of 1999. A second phase of new construction was completed in 2008; a third phase renovated the original campus. This project, the largest of its kind in SRJCs history, tripled the square footage of the campus. Among the new facilities are labs and classrooms, a second art studio, a 35,000 square foot library, a physical fitness center, a bookstore, student services and support areas, expanded dining space, faculty/administrative offices, and a 256-seat auditorium. The campus offers state-of-the-art technology throughout, including a wireless network, fully mediated instructional facilities, and video-conferencing capabilities. Other unique features of the campus include the Capri Creek restoration project and an accessible walking and bike trail system. A Cinema Series, Digital Media, Networking, Helpdesk, Fitness, Nutrition and Health, CISCO, and Water Resources Technology certificates are some of the program offerings unique to the campus. This beautiful campus is located 35 miles north of San Francisco.
