Hello everyone,

Please circulate widely!

The Environmental Studies Program at the University of Southern California
is hiring both a full time and part time faculty position.  These are
non-tenure track positions, but hiring can happen under a number of
possible titles and at different levels (depending on qualifications and
experience, see below) and contracts are renewable.

On a personal note, I have been working in this program for three years and
it is a great group of colleagues.  We also have amazing and passionate
students, small class sizes, and a full load of classes is 5 classes in a
year.  In addition, USC offers advancement for their faculty that are not
on the tenure track.

Please don't hesitate to email me if you have any questions
