Job Summary

The JCCC Electronics Technology department is seeking part-time (adjunct) instructors to teach courses in analog and digital electronics. Our program prepares students to work as electronic technicians. All our coursework combines classroom and hands-on laboratory experiences; critical thinking skills emphasized include troubleshooting and analysis.

Our digital electronics sequence covers a wide range of topics including binary and hexadecimal number systems, basic Boolean algebra, logic gates, registers, flip-flops, computer architecture, microprocessors, microcontrollers, embedded programming concepts, and analog/digital interfacing. The sequence culminates in a capstone experience where students implement a unique digital system centered around a microcontroller.

Applicants wishing to teach in the digital sequence must possess a strong knowledge of digital electronics and current computer architecture, especially embedded systems, along with practical experience in programming languages (assembly to C++) and development environments. Analog and mixed signal skills are essential.

Our analog sequence includes an introduction to the field, AC/DC circuit theory (with emphasis on analysis and troubleshooting), semiconductor devices, and electronic communication systems. The applicant needs a strong knowledge of passive devices, diodes, transistors, FETs and the ability to teach students how to analyze and troubleshoot circuits and systems using contemporary test equipment including meters, oscilloscopes, spectrum analyzers, and other related equipment.


Required Qualifications

Associate in Applied Science degree
5 or more years' experience in a related field
Ability to convey complex technical material to a diverse audience using a minimal mathematical approach (algebra/trigonometry)
Ability to use electronic test equipment in troubleshooting of analog and digital circuitry to the component level
Familiarity with breadboarding using discrete and integrated circuitry
Ability to use soldering for both through-hole and surface mount (SMT) technologies
Ability to use appropriate safety measures for electronic maintenance and fabrication


Preferred Qualifications

ISCET CETa certification
IPC 610 certification
Experience in prototyping systems and/or circuit board layout using Cadence OrCAD or a similar system
Ability to use simulation software (PSPICE core) to model circuit behavior
Ability to develop application solutions for microcontrollers/microprocessor systems using an integrated development environment (IDE) and specific toolchain
Ability to work in a mixed analog/digital environment including PCs and TCP/IP networking
