I think what would appeal to me is a kind of adjunct lecturer position. What I'd like is to offer the university a deal where in semesters they are short-handed, I would come in and teach a class for them. When they don't need me, I'd be happy to sit out. That would give them some flexibility in staffing course schedules. My willingness to work only when they need me might be a huge asset to them. In exchange, I would ask not to have to do service work, reasearch, etc. I could also work as an independent consultant or contractor if they like, since I'm not really interested in benefits.


This is what my FIL does quite a lot of. I don't think it pays all that well, but he has a lot of flexibility and even does some distance learning classes over the internet. He has a PhD, although I know that many schools don't actually require it. I think what you want is considered "adjunct faculty". Heck, in grad school we had classes taught by adjunct profs all the time, and many were quite useful since these were generally people working on Wall St. teaching MBA classes.
