Currently I’m in a situation where I was originally working with an university to develop a course while being in industry, but I left the industry job. I’m not sure how to approach the conversation with the university. On one hand I would like to develop the course and teach it, but the university is a teaching oriented one (while I’m interested in research). Would it be better to work out a deal with them that I’ll be an adjunct on the class and see how I get compensated for also developing a course? Or should I go in as an assistant professor and see how it goes (even though I think I wouldn’t stay there for more than 2-3 years, and I would also pursue research with outside academia)?
