Exciting academic career opportunity

Remember that Washington Post op-ed about all those great community college jobs with excellent pay and almost no work? (Sure you do, I talked about it two posts down) Well, the school the writer used as his main example has an opening in statistics so I'm sure some of our readers would like to get a resume in.

  1. So a person who teaches 11.5 hours in the fall/winter and 10 hours in the spring (with a 3 to 1 ratio of preparation to teaching) is making $28,737.39 for a 40 to 50 hour a week job (depending on how many new classes and repeats you have).

    This job requires a graduate degree and is subject to having part of the job cancelled at the last moment.

    I see no mention of benefits. Most administrative assistants have better jobs at equivalent (but more secure) wages.
