Professor of Practice

published Mar 15, 2021 10:43am

The Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences at Tulane University seeks to fill a Professor of Practice position to begin as early as July 1, 2021. We seek an Earth and environmental scientist with interests broadly falling in the field of geospatial analysis, including but not limited to environmental remote sensing. The department currently offers an undergraduate degree with a concentration in either earth science or environmental science. Opportunities exist for advising undergraduate research and development of service-learning courses. We would like to broaden participation in the study of the Earth and environment and therefore encourage applications from groups that are historically underrepresented in the sciences.

The position is a non-tenured, full-time academic year (9-month) teaching position with renewable 3-year appointments. Key responsibilities of this position include:

  • Serve as instructor for courses comprising the undergraduate curriculum, including those related to the department's GIS Certificate Program.
  • Serve as instructor for courses in the applicant's area of specialization
  • Provide service to the educational mission of the department and university, and collaborate on equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) initiatives.

Review of applications will begin March 31, 2021, and review will continue until the position is filled. Applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, statement of teaching philosophy, any previous teaching evaluations or other evidence of teaching excellence, and contact information for three references familiar with the applicant's teaching abilities. In addition, candidates may submit a one-page summary of Covid-19 impacts, if any, on their work and/or professional development. Applications must be submitted electronically via the following link: Any inquiries may be directed to Dr. George C. Flowers, Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, Tulane University, 6823 St. Charles Ave., New Orleans, LA 70118-5698.
