November 23, 2016.    Category: Other

The Department of Geography at the University of Colorado Boulder invites applications for a non-tenure track full-time instructor position in Human Geography with a regional specialization in mainland Southeast Asia. A PhD in Geography or related field is required at the time of appointment. The appointment begins August 2017. In partnership with the Center for Asian Studies, this position is partially funded by a CAS grant to build capacity in Southeast Asian Studies on campus. We seek a human geographer to develop courses in SE Asian area studies, including a regional survey course and a course in the candidate’s topic of specialization. Additional teaching will help maintain the continuity of the human geography curriculum, including introductory-level courses in human, regional, or nature-society geographies. Preference will be given to candidates with strong field research and teaching experience, including language training, in mainland Southeast Asia, and a research specialization complementing the Department’s existing strengths in development studies, cultural, political, and population geographies, as well as political ecology.

Applications are accepted electronically at CU Careers, posting number 07659, and should include a CV, letter of application, evidence of teaching effectiveness, and statement of teaching experience, philosophy, and proposed contribution. Review of applications will begin on January 15, 2017 and continue until the position is filled.
