POSITION SUMMARY

The Transformative Studies Doctorate (TSD) Program of the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) is accepting applications for one full-time faculty position. Transformative Studies has been an asynchronous online doctoral program since its inception 15 years ago. This transdisciplinary degree frames inquiry as a creative process and encourages innovative research on a range of topics and issues within the general scope of the faculty's expertise.



This transdisciplinary program is designed to aid students in developing skills for creative inquiry and to prepare them for qualitative or theoretical research. Courses are mainly asynchronous and seminar style.



The program begins with a retreat (virtual at this time or in person in the future) each Fall and Spring semester, followed by 15 weeks of online instruction. The course curriculum consists of 36 units followed by the dissertation phase.



Teaching, mentoring, and curriculum development in the graduate program allows faculty members the opportunity to exercise broad-ranging intellectual curiosity.



Due to the unique nature of the department and the institution, candidates are urged to consult the Transformative Inquiry Department pages at the CIIS website (www.ciis.edu/tsd), to assess their alignment with the departmental and institutional missions.



ESSENTIAL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES

Duties for a full-time position involve a combination of: teaching, serving on dissertation committees, serving on university committees, attending faculty meetings, working collaboratively with faculty and program director, conducting information sessions and admissions interviews, attending CIIS-wide Open Houses, and engaging in professional development.

Job Requirements:

  • Commitment to the mission and transdisciplinary vision explored by the TSD department
  • Inspiring and effective asynchronous online teaching skills and facilitation of experiential learning
