GC Teaching Postdoctoral Fellowship Program


The Georgia College Teaching Postdoctoral Fellowship is an innovative ten-month faculty program focusing on contributing to Georgia College’s mission of teaching excellence, while affording the recipients an opportunity to develop and hone their own teaching practice in a dynamic and engaging liberal arts environment. The Postdoctoral Fellows will hold a ten-month academic appointment at the rank of Lecturer, and actively participate in both the life of the department and the broader university.

GC Teaching Postdoctoral Fellows will receive full benefits, and mentorship from both their home department and the Center for Teaching & Learning. Fellows will be assigned a 3/3 teaching load, and will participate in the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SOTL) fellows program, developing a year-long project centered around their teaching. In addition to mentorship, Postdoctoral Fellows will also take part in the Center for Teaching & Learning’s Peer Feedback on Teaching in-class evaluation program. The university is seeking candidates who are interested in innovative pedagogies, scholarship of teaching and learning (SOTL), and/or high-impact practices which align with our GC Journeys initiative.
