Assistant Professor of Environmental Science, St. Mary's College of Maryland

Assistant Professor of Environmental Science, St. Mary's College of Maryland

The Environmental Studies Program at St. Mary’s College of Maryland invites applications for its first full-time, tenure-track faculty position in Environmental Studies at the rank of Assistant Professor beginning in August 2009, contingent upon adequate state funding support. A Ph.D. in Environmental Studies or in a related interdisciplinary field such as sustainability is required, and candidates must have a Ph.D. degree in hand or expected when the appointment begins. Proficiency in another discipline and a demonstrated ability to attract and retain students from underrepresented groups are desirable.

We seek a candidate whose first priority is high-quality teaching in a liberal arts college. The successful candidate will demonstrate ability and interest in interdisciplinary teaching and scholarship, community involvement, and collaborating with colleagues from departments across campus to build the program. Teaching expectations are three courses per semester, including the required introductory Environmental Perspectives courses and a senior-level Environmental Studies seminar with additional intermediate or upper level courses appropriate to the individual's area of specialization.

Non-sectarian since its founding, St. Mary's College of Maryland, a public Carnegie Baccalaureate, Arts and Sciences institution located in Historic St. Mary's City, 70 miles southeast of Washington, D.C., has been designated as Maryland's public honors college. With highly selective admissions policies, academically talented students, and a rigorous curriculum, we offer a small college experience similar to that found at exceptional private colleges. St. Mary’s faculty benefit from a comprehensive program of support for scholarship, research, travel, and curriculum development, including course releases for pre-tenure faculty and leaves for tenured faculty. The quality of life is enhanced by the recreational opportunities of the Chesapeake region and by our proximity to Washington, D.C. and Baltimore.

Send CV, cover letter including statement of research and teaching interests, teaching philosophy, graduate academic transcripts, and three letters of recommendation (including at least two addressing teaching ability) to Dr. Kate Chandler, Coordinator, Environmental Studies, Dept. of English, St. Mary’s College of Maryland, 18952 E. Fisher Rd., St. Mary’s City, MD 20686-3001. For further information visit http://www.smcm.edu/environmentalstudies/index.html or e-mail Dr. Chandler at krchandler@smcm.edu.

Review of applications will begin December 1, 2008 and continue until the position is filled. St. Mary’s College of Maryland is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.
