Job postings for higher education positions grew 16.5 percent in the third quarter of 2011, compared to 63.2 percent in 2010, according to a recent report from HigherEdJobs, a source for academic jobs and career information.

The report also reveals that colleges and universities are increasingly hiring part-time faculty during the third quarter, despite the actual number of full-time faculty postings being up.  In fact, job postings for part-time faculty were up 18.1 percent, a jump from the 12.3 percent growth in postings for full-time faculty. This means the percentage of faculty postings for part-time employees rose to 20.3 percent, an increase from 19.5 percent in 2010.
