The Department of Geography and Environmental Systems at the University of
Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) invites applications for a one-year
appointment (starting August 1, 2016) as a Visiting Assistant Professor in
the area of Geographic Information Systems. The successful candidate will
hold a PhD in Geography or related discipline at the time of appointment
and demonstrate experience working with advanced geospatial applications or
GIS instruction. We anticipate that the successful candidate will teach 3
courses for each of two terms including some combination of the following:
multiple sections of introductory GIS, advanced GIS, cartographic design
and visualization, GIS programming, applied landscape ecology, or up to two
additional courses in the candidate’s area of specialty.
The Department has experienced rapid growth in recent years, doubling
undergraduate majors to over 300 in B.S. and B.A. programs, 60 M.S.
students (including accelerated B.S./MS, M.S., Professional M.S. in GIS)
and 16 Ph.D. students. The department has 14 regular faculty and 9
adjunct/affiliate faculty, and has established a strong record of federal
grant support (e.g., NSF, NASA, NOAA, USDA). Faculty research interests
span a range of topics from human geography to environmental science and
management including: ecology and biogeography, global change science,
hydrology and geomorphology, meteorology and severe storms, GIS and remote
sensing, urban geography, public health, environmental history, political
ecology, resource conservation, and environmental policy. Urban
environmental research is particularly well represented, given faculty
affiliation with UMBC’s Center for Urban Environmental Research and
Education (CUERE) and the Baltimore Ecosystem Study Urban LTER.
All application materials should be submitted via apply.interfolio.com and
should include: cover letter with description of qualifications, teaching
experience, research program, and a description of two potential classes in
area of specialty; CV and the names of three references. Questions can be
directed to Robin Schmidbauer at GESvisitingGISSearch at umbc.edu. Formal
review of applications will begin on May 15, 2016 and will continue until
the position is filled.
UMBC is especially proud of the diversity of its student body and we seek
to attract an equally diverse applicant pool for this position. We have a
strong commitment to increasing faculty diversity. We encourage
applications from women, minority group members, veterans and individuals
with disabilities. UMBC is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
