Washington College, a selective liberal arts college in the
Chesapeake Bay watershed on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, invites applications for
a tenure-track position in environmental science, to begin in August of 2017.
We seek a broadly trained environmental scientist with expertise in the study
of coastal systems. The ideal candidate will develop course offerings,
pedagogical approaches, and student-faculty research that engages students both
within and beyond the classroom. We are particularly interested in
candidates whose teaching and scholarship can explore the coastal environment
local to the College, but who can also engage students in a study of
international coastal issues. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in environmental
science or related discipline and the capacity to contribute to an innovative
interdisciplinary environmental curriculum.
The successful candidate will have a demonstrated
commitment to teaching excellence, a strong interest in developing a career as
a teacher-scholar in a liberal arts institution, and show significant promise
as a scholar. The candidate will develop upper-level classes in their
area of expertise, as well as contribute to the foundational introductory
environmental course and the college-wide first-year seminar program. This
hiring effort is part of the expansion of the recently created Department of
Environmental Science and Studies at Washington College and will contribute to
achieving the College’s goal of becoming a leader in the interdisciplinary
study of the environment, as articulated in its strategic plan.
Candidates should submit a cover letter, CV, statements of
teaching philosophy and research interests, and the names of four professional
references through our on-line portal Consensus at http://ift.tt/11v1Uhj. Inquiries should
be directed to Professor Leslie Sherman, co-chair of the Department of
Environmental Science and Studies (email@example.com).
Review of applications will begin on November 15th, pending final budgetary
approval, and will continue until the position is filled.
