University of Washington, Tacoma, Full-Time Lecturer

Reference: JOB36806
Application deadline: 6 days 10 hours 3 minutes

The Urban Studies program at the University of Washington Tacoma invites applications for a Full-Time Lecturer position with a 9-month service period beginning September 16, 2014. This initial appointment is for a three –year term with the possibility of renewal. This position requires college-level teaching experience and completion of all requirements for a doctoral degree or foreign equivalent with the exception of the dissertation (ABD) in an urban or planning-related field. An earned doctorate or foreign equivalent is preferred but not required. The successful candidate will teach lower- and upper-division courses contributing to the Urban Studies and the Sustainable Urban Development degrees as well as introductory social science and humanities courses in the interdisciplinary campus-wide undergraduate program. Sustainability and social justice are foundational principles for courses addressing the historical, physical, environmental, social, economic and political evolution of cities.

Established in 2001, the Urban Studies program currently offers degrees leading to a Bachelor of Arts in Urban Studies or a Bachelor of Arts in Sustainable Urban Development along with a certificate program in Geographic Information Systems. The program currently enrolls approximately 85 majors and certification students and has approximately 12 full- and part-time faculty members. Developed by faculty from disciplines including geography, cultural anthropology, social welfare, and social ecology, the Urban Studies program emphasizes multidisciplinarity as it explores urban dynamics that shape cities, locally and globally. We value collaborative relationships, community involvement and partnerships, excellent classroom and online teaching, and a commitment to the success of students in the program.
