The Faculty of Leadership & Integrative Studies (LIS) in the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts (CISA) at Arizona State University (ASU) invites applications for two Lecturer faculty positions to begin in the fall 2021 semester. The successful candidates will build and teach courses for the BA and MS degrees in Organizational Leadership, and they will participate in faculty service to the institution and profession. 

The LIS Faculty is a vibrant community of forty-three full-time faculty dedicated to excellent teaching, scholarship and service. We are diverse, inclusive, student-centered, collegial, innovative, dynamic and growing. Information about our faculty and course offerings can be found at https://cisa.asu.edu/people/faculty/lis and https://webapp4.asu.edu/catalog/courselist?s=OGL.

Teaching assignments are at the graduate and undergraduate levels, may occur in a variety of modalities (online, on- ground, hybrid), and on the Tempe, Downtown Phoenix or Polytechnic campuses. The course load is determined by the faculty head and typically consists of four classes per semester. Professional development and faculty service opportunities are varied and abundant in our robust governing structures and diffused leadership.
