The University of San Diego (USD) Department of Environmental and Ocean Sciences (EOSC) invites applications for an environmental scientist who studies the impacts of climate change or other environmental factors on natural resources such as food, access to clean water for agriculture, drinking, or recreation, land use, or renewable energy, with connections to environmental justice, equity, and sustainable development. The scientists should have a program of scholarship that is connected to one of the following three cluster hire themes: 1) Climate Change and Environmental Justice, 2) Borders and Social Justice, or 3) Technology & the Human Experiences. This position is part of a cross-disciplinary cluster hire to build a cohort of diverse scholars. For more information about the cluster themes click here.
This faculty member will be expected to teach at least three of the following courses (EOSC 105/110, 123, 170, 175, 220, 222, 300, 301) http://www.sandiego.edu/cas/environmental-ocean-sciences/program/?area=courses, and one specialty upper-division (i.e., junior/senior-level course that might be cross-listed for some graduate students) course with the potential for interdisciplinary connections outside the sciences. The position carries a 3-3 teaching load (with lectures and labs counting each separately for one class) with the possibility to reduce the load by one course with internal or external grant funding. Candidates will be expected to develop a program of scholarship that incorporates undergraduates and MS students in their research. Candidates will also participate in service that fits their interests. Candidates must be able to demonstrate a strong commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
