About Vassar College
Vassar is a highly selective, coeducational liberal arts college of about 2400 undergraduates (no graduate students) located in the beautiful and historic Hudson Valley seventy-five miles north of New York City. The city of Poughkeepsie benefits from rich cultural diversity and from convenient commuter rail access to New York City. Vassar faculty are committed teachers/scholars who bring research and creative discovery to life for students in classrooms, labs, and studios and in individually mentored projects. They teach broadly in the curricula of their departments, advise students, and serve on college-wide and departmental committees. The College maintains a generous leave policy, provides strong support for research, and encourages multidisciplinary approaches to teaching.
The Department of Earth Science and Geography at Vassar College invites applications for a visiting, one-year appointment in Geography, beginning fall semester of 2022.
Vassar College is an affirmative action and equal opportunity employer with a strong commitment to increasing the diversity of the campus community and the curriculum, and promoting an environment of equality, inclusion, and respect for difference. Candidates who can contribute to this goal through their teaching, research, advising, and other activities are encouraged to identify their strengths and experiences in this area. Individuals from groups whose underrepresentation in the American professoriate has been severe and longstanding are particularly encouraged to apply.
We seek a social scientist with geographical interests in human-environmental relations, such as political ecology, natural resources, postcolonialism, urban dynamics, race and ethnic studies, and related areas. Regional interests in Africa, South or Central Asia and the United States are desirable, but not required. A Ph.D. or advancement to candidacy in geography or related fields is expected. The teaching load is 5 courses (2 in one semester, 3 in the other). One of the five courses will be a First-Year Writing Seminar on a geographic topic of interest; three courses will be intermediate, 200-level courses on topical or regional courses; and one will be an advanced 300-level seminar.
