Routine management of 15 full time and >50 adjunct faculty; scheduling and staffing nearly 150 sections of courses in chemistry, physics, geology, and general sciences. Other responsibilities include:teaching evaluation of faculty members, adjunct recruitment, mentoring/training, resolving students issues, transcript evaluation, departmental activities, planning/ordering “state of the art” research instruments, course level and program level assessment, curriculum development, research project development, driving new initiatives, staff supervision, institutional services, institutional advancement, outreach, and facility/lab management. Developed and implemented undergraduate research program in the department of Natural Sciences at MCC. Acquired strong management skills. Workplace culture is very rewarding in such academic institution. For example,
over a period of four years, I supervised and mentored 25 chemistry and biology major students to complete their research projects and trained them how to present their results at state and regional meetings. The most enjoyable part of this job is the constant interactions with students of diverse background and fellow academic instructors. The hardest part of this job is to keep up the balance between personal life and work load of this assignment.
