Assistant Professor of Geography
Posted: 11/28/2016 (Employment)
The College of Humanities and Fine Arts at Coastal Carolina University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Geography, with a specialization in Human Geography. The candidate must be able to teach a range of lower and upper-level courses in service to an innovative combined B.A. in Anthropology and Geography, and the minor in Geographic Information Systems, including GIS and other introductory courses and upper-level seminars. Because it is an integrated Anthropology and Geography department, preference may be given to candidates with research or teaching in cultural geography that facilitates collaboration across both disciplines.
Candidates should hold an earned Ph.D. in geography or a related discipline, exhibit scholarly promise, and possess a sound record of teaching excellence. The teaching load is 7 classes over the course of a 12-month academic year, and includes limited opportunities for periodically teaching evening, weekend, study-abroad, summer and distance-learning courses. The salary range is within CUPA Averages.
