The University of Redlands (www.redlands.edu) Department of Environmental Studies invites applications for a permanent, non-tenure-track Lecturer to join our faculty in Environmental Studies.
We seek applicants broadly trained in environmental studies with experience in the teaching and praxis of environmental analysis and management.

The successful applicant will have the ability to teach some combination of courses such as introduction to environmental studies, global environmental change, environmental impact assessment, environmental planning, and studio classes in which students are coached to complete an applied project in environmental analysis and management using appropriate tools such as GIS.
The department will value applicants who have experience working with students from diverse cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. Applicants are asked to identify their strengths and experiences in assisting diverse student populations to accomplish curricular goals. The successful applicant will be expected to support the College of Arts and Science’s new general education curriculum.
The University of Redlands is a private, comprehensive liberal arts institution located 60 miles east of Los Angeles in a town of 70,000. The campus is surrounded by orange groves and sits at the base of the San Bernardino Mountains, one hour from the coast, and 40 miles west of Palm Springs.
Desired/Preferred Qualifications: A Masters degree in a relevant environmental field is required, though a Ph.D. is preferred. Desirable qualifications for this position include: a broad base of knowledge in environmental studies with experience in the field of environmental management and planning, such as writing and conducting environmental impact assessments, and GIS. Teaching load is 8 courses per year. There is a possibility of student advising reducing the teaching load, one of those courses may be a travel course or field-intensive course during our month-long May term, and some courses may repeat.
