Deep Springs faculty members work closely with students to form a mutually rewarding and unique academic environment. The College hires some of its faculty for multi-year “long-term” appointments, and others for 14-week semester “short-term” visiting appointments (September-December and January-April). Additional short-term professors are hired for the two 7-week summer terms: the Interim Term (May-June), when faculty have the opportunity to teach shorter classes with unconventional focus, and the Summer Seminar (July-August), an interdisciplinary course oriented broadly around questions of political theory. At any given time, there are generally 5-7 professors on campus.
Descriptions of our open faculty positions and an online application are now available. Further inquiries about faculty employment and hiring should be addressed to the Chair of the Curriculum Committee, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deep Springs is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnic origin, disability, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religion or political affiliation. However, see note below.
Note on non-U.S. applications: Due to time-consuming federal procedures and our limited administrative resources, Deep Springs regrets that it cannot support visa applications for faculty applicants who are not already or otherwise eligible for employment in the United States.
