Posted: 2/21/2017 (Employment)
The University of Redlands Spatial Studies Program seeks applicants for a one-year, renewable up to three years, visiting assistant professor position. The visitor will teach six course equivalents/year within our undergraduate Spatial Studies Minor Program. These diverse teaching responsibilities extend over an 9-month period each year.
The successful candidate will teach introductory GIS and spatial thinking courses targeted towards undergraduate students from a wide range of disciplines, including environmental studies, humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. Additional undergraduate courses may include an undergraduate lab in which GIS is applied to topics of the candidate’s choice. Opportunities will exist to collaborate with other departments and faculty across campus. However, the primary responsibilities are teaching, advising as appropriate, and contributing to curriculum design. A strong commitment to undergraduate education, including mentoring students from diverse backgrounds and working closely with student researchers, is essential.
