fields. The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. granted by

Georgia to around the world. We particularly welcome
applicants with field-based research experience with
undergraduate students, and interest or experience in
community engagement and/or discipline-based education
research. We also encourage applications from candidates with
a strong track record of teaching and mentoring students from
under-represented groups.

The initial
appointment will be made for a period of three years with
potential for promotion to Senior Lecturer after 6 years (in
exceptional cases candidates could be considered at this
rank). Please see: http://ift.tt/2dmtK4W details about
lecture-track appointments at Emory.

The successful
candidate will join a friendly and cohesive faculty group of
tenure-track and lecture-track faculty (http://ift.tt/2egrfXP)
and will be expected to contribute to the academic life of the
department, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the
University through service and academic committees.

the names and contact information of three references. Submit

will continue until the position is filled; applications
received up to 30 days after review begins will be given full
consideration. Questions related to the position (but not
application materials) should be addressed to: envs.search@emory.edu.
