NOTE: The Deep Springs Curriculum Committee is currently accepting applications for faculty positions. The online application for the 2017-18 academic year is now available.
Deep Springs College seeks Visiting Scholars and Artists who are qualified teachers, from graduate students to professors emeriti, in all disciplines. Read more about teaching at Deep Springs here.
Available: Fall and Winter Semesters: Visiting Scholars and Visiting Artists
During the two full semesters, September-December and January-April, we have two or three Visiting Scholars or Visiting Artists teaching at Deep Springs. Visiting professors teach one class, usually in their specialty or discipline. We are currently accepting applications for the fall of 2017 and spring of 2018. Visiting appointments typically last a single semester.
Available: Interim Summer Appointments (May-June)
At the close of our main academic year, the seven-week interim summer term (May-June) is staffed largely by visiting professors. In addition to standard curricular offerings in any liberal arts field, this term is an opportunity for faculty applicants to offer classes of more particular, experimental, or eclectic focus. We are currently entertaining applications for the interim summer term in 2018.
Available: Short-Term or Visiting Appointments for Scholars on Sabbatical Leave
Deep Springs makes a limited number of short-term and summer appointments one to several years in advance, in order to accommodate applications from scholars planning sabbatical leaves from other institutions. Applications are currently accepted for Fall 2017 and beyond.
