The Geography Department at Colgate University invites applications for two (2) one-year visiting faculty positions at the rank of Assistant Professor in Human Geography and Physical Geography beginning fall semester 2022. Both candidates should be able to teach upper and lower division courses in their respective fields, and be able to contribute to the department’s methods electives and senior seminars. For the Human Geography position the areas of specialization are open, but candidates whose work engages Black, Latinx, feminist, queer, Indigenous, postcolonial or health geographies, or who use critical GIS approaches to engage human dimensions of socio-environmental processes in these contexts are especially encouraged to apply. For the Physical Geography position, specialization is also open, but we especially encourage applications from candidates who use geospatial data science approaches to address global change issues such as climate impacts, urban environments, environmental justice, disease ecology, or food security. Completion of Ph.D. is required prior to or shortly after the time of hire. Successful candidates may be expected to participate in all-university programs, including the Liberal Arts Core Curriculum.
