NCSSM is ranked as the #1 Public High School in the U.S

The North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics (NCSSM) invites applications for a full-time Instructor of American Studies and Asian-American Studies at its campus in Durham, North Carolina. The position is a 10-month, permanent-track appointment with full benefits through the State of North Carolina.

Founded in 1980, the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics is a state-supported residential and online high school for students who have demonstrated exceptional talent or interest in science, mathematics, engineering, and technology. Since the school’s inception, the humanities and fine arts have been an integral part of an NCSSM education and have played a key role in helping the institution fulfill its mission to cultivate a new generation of informed, empathetic, engaged, and ethical citizens and leaders.

The position is a full-time, ten-month appointment in the Department of Humanities at the NCSSM-Durham campus, with full benefits through the State of North Carolina. The position reports to the Chair of Humanities, NCSSM-Durham, and is responsible for providing instruction in American Studies, senior-level Asian-American Studies courses, and humanities interdisciplinary elective courses, all with an emphasis on critical reading, critical thinking, and academic writing. 

The expected teaching assignment for each position is three course sections per semester: two sections of American Studies and one section of Asian-American Studies.

The heart of NCSSM Humanities is our American Studies Program, the core shared experience for all juniors. American Studies doubles as the base of the NCSSM Writing Program, which emphasizes writing-as-reasoning. As seniors, students choose from a variety of interdisciplinary humanities courses. Offerings in our Fine Arts program include studio and performance courses in the visual arts, music, and drama. Our program also includes student- and faculty-led seminars and independent studies. 

Humanities faculty are responsible for developing and teaching innovative and engaging humanities curricula, with a focus on interdisciplinary studies, in NCSSM’s residential and highly interactive online programs. Faculty should plan on playing an enthusiastic role with colleagues across all campuses of the school in ongoing conversations and collaborations about ideas, goals, pedagogical methods, and authentic assessments in NCSSM’s teaching and learning environment.
