Adjunct Faculty Opportunities

UAF Chukchi seeks local and/or regional professors! If you have a skill, work experience and better yet, a degree and want to teach, please contact us about opportunities.

An adjunct usually has formal education, credentials and practical work experience. While some subjects like math, English, and political science require advanced degrees (generally, a Masters or higher), other subjects (like Inupiaq language and arts, medical billing, and first aid) require less education like a certification or A.A.S. while other subjects like native arts & crafts, arctic survival, and hunting need no formal education at all.
