Visiting Assistant Professor or Instructor of Geography
Middlebury College

The Geography Department seeks to fill a 1-year term position beginning in the fall of 2014 in Human Geography at the instructor (ABD) or Assistant Professor (Ph.D) level.  We seek broadly trained candidates with strong quantitative skills who complement the department’s existing thematic and regional strengths.  In particular, preference will be given to candidates who can offer an advanced course in statistical analysis in geography and thematic courses in human-environment relations, particularly medical geography and/or hazards. Regionally, we prefer candidates whose research and teaching is based in parts of the world that are not well represented in our department, including Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Teaching responsibilities will include one 300-level course in statistical analysis in geography and 200-level electives in the candidate’s areas of expertise.  The strongest candidates will be able to contribute to the department’s existing ties with other departments and programs across campus (e.g. Environmental Studies, International and Global Studies, and Global Health).  Review of applications will begin March 24, 2014 and continue until the position is filled.  The Department will hold interviews at the AAG meeting in Tampa, Florida (April 9 – 12).
