    Northern Pennsylvania Regional College (NPRC) seeks diverse, innovative instructors committed to students in one- and two-year career/technical certificate and degree programs, two-year associate degree programs intended for transfer into baccalaureate programs, and non-credit professional development training.

Preference will be given to qualified applicants who are willing to relocate and teach in-person within the College’s instructional footprint.

This teaching method, which is used in a limited way in many postsecondary institutions (often called ICR or ITV), is the dominant method of teaching/learning at NPRC. The successful applicant must be able to work effectively with supervisors, colleagues, staff, and students as part of an education team.
