Company Description:

SUNY Maritime College located on a 55-acre scenic waterfront property on the outskirts of New York City on the Throggs Neck peninsula where the East River meets Long Island Sound. The campus blends the best of two worlds: a comfortable college-town feel with the greatest city in the world. An impressive view of the sound extends toward the North Atlantic, yet only a few miles away are Yankee Stadium and midtown Manhattan. SUNY Maritime offers an array of employment opportunities stemming from entry level to professional positions which encourage growth and development among its employees.

Job Description:

The Marine Transportation Department is currently recruiting for a one-semester Visiting Instructor teaching position. Incumbents will teach courses as described below, the needs of the Department, Department Chair, and their background allow.

Knowledge of simulator operations will be helpful and given preference, but not a requirement.

Other potential topics could include Vessel Operations, Seamanship, Rescue Craft, Management and Maritime Regulation, Basic and Advanced Navigation, Ship Handling, Rules of the Road, Stability, Ships Construction, License Preparation, and Simulator Operations as an example, but can include others, as needs of the Department dictate, and their background allows.
  • The experiential education component of some ship and license-related classes will involve teaching outdoors on the pier, onboard the Training Ship, and at the Firefighting field. Candidates should be comfortable teaching in these environments
  • The selected individual will participate in campus and departmental meetings, departmental projects, counseling and advising cadets and holding office hours to provide academic and professional assistance to their students consistent with departmental policies
