GCU offers full-time faculty positions for teaching our traditional student body at our vibrant main campus in Phoenix or at our campus extension locations around the Valley. We offer modern facilities with smaller classroom sizes, so our faculty can spend more time doing what they do best—educating students to better prepare them for a successful professional and spiritual path. Our faculty and management teams are filled with supportive, caring individuals who are all dedicated to providing the best in education within the context of our Christian worldview.

Our online instruction team has opportunities available for full-time online faculty members who teach year-round from our Phoenix administrative location. These positions provide students with the ability to learn from their own location via our online modality.



GCU hires adjunct faculty to teach courses on a class-by-class basis at both our main campus and campus extension locations as well as online/remote. Campus-based adjuncts typically provide face-to-face instruction for traditional semester-long courses. Online adjuncts teach five to eight-week long courses on a virtual basis through an easy-to-manage online platform, allowing flexibility to work during the hours most convenient for the instructor.

In addition to instructor positions, we have other part-time opportunities available throughout the country for faculty to serve in roles including doctoral dissertation chairs, doctoral methodologists, subject matter experts, faculty mentors and student supervisors.
