POSITION:

The Environmental Studies Graduate Program at CSUF invites applicants for its part-time faculty pool on an ongoing basis. The master's program in Environmental Studies is a broadly based, interdisciplinary program that focuses on human interaction with the environment.

The program is geared for students entering the rapidly expanding environmental field, especially in environmental science, planning and regulation, and environmental education. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of environmental challenges, the program seeks to integrate paradigms and approaches from a range of related disciplines in the sciences, social sciences, and humanities. With 60-100 graduate students, the program offers an exciting and rewarding academic experience for its students and its faculty. For further information, please refer to the Environmental Studies homepage: http://hss.fullerton.edu/envstud/

Areas of Specialization

We are seeking highly motivated, well-organized individuals for possible teaching assignments in the following courses:

  • Air Quality Management
  • Environmental Activism and Organization
  • Environmental Dispute Resolution
  • Environmental Education
  • Environmental Hydrology
  • Environmental Impact Assessment
  • Environmental Law

This is a pool of part-time lecturers for the department to draw on as necessary. APPOINTMENTS FROM THE PART-TIME POOL ARE TEMPORARY AND OFTEN MADE JUST PRIOR TO THE START OF THE ACADEMIC TERM. APPLICANTS MUST BE AVAILABLE ON VERY SHORT NOTICE. 

MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS:

Candidates should have a PhD, or have a Master's degree with considerable professional experience. Disciplinary background and professional expertise should be consistent with the course content. We are especially interested in candidates with previous teaching experience, with applied environmental expertise, and with experience addressing environmental challenges in the Southern California context. Because our students are drawn from an array of undergraduate backgrounds-sciences, social sciences, and humanities- the ability to communicate effectively with a broad mix of students is essential.

Candidates should demonstrate their ability to interact and work effectively with a wide and culturally diverse range of students, including first-generation college students. 

PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS:

Preference will be given to those with experience in working with diverse populations and fostering a collaborative, supportive and inclusive environment.  Preference will also be given to those with substantial relevant work experience and those who bring professional capabilities.

  • Documentation of teaching effectiveness (if available)
  • Sample course syllabi (if available)
