Nurturing Roots for Life Long Learning

Master Teacher Openings

YT Outside Reading

We have two Master Teacher openings at the Priscilla Pond Flawn Child and Family Laboratory at UT Austin. One position is full-time (Toddlers AM/Preschoolers PM). The other position is part-time (Preschoolers AM), but there is opportunity for it to be full-time too for applicants with a PhD and a record for successful teaching in higher education. 

These are Assistant Professor of Practice positions (non-tenure track; benefits eligible) in Human Development and Family Sciences. Here’s a link to the job posting: https://apply.interfolio.com/34045.
 
We’d like to fill both positions ASAP. The basic requirements are a Master’s Degree in Child Development, ECE, or a closely related field and experience educating both young children and adult learners. Early childhood teaching certification is preferred.
