The Department of Geography, Planning and Environment (GPE) invites applications for a tenure-track appointment in Geography with expertise in geospatial data analysis and human geography at the rank of Assistant Professor to begin August 12, 2019. We seek an individual who applies geospatial data science to advance a vibrant, externally-funded research program.

Individuals who can advance the Department’s BS degree in Geographic Information Science and Technology (GIST) as well as contribute to the human geography curriculum, including the newly developed BS track in Global Environment and Development are encouraged to apply. Teaching responsibilities will include undergraduate and graduate courses in GIS, quantitative methods, human geography, and the candidate’s area of specialty. Advising of undergraduate and graduate students is also expected.

Applications must be submitted online at www.jobs.ecu.edu, and should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of teaching and research interests, evidence of teaching effectiveness, and the names and contact information for three current references. Applicants must also complete a candidate profile. We will ask top candidates to have three reference letters sent to the Search Committee Chair via email within 7 days of notification. An official transcript and three hard copy original letters of reference are required upon employment. Questions may be addressed to Dr. Scott Curtis, search committee chair (curtisw@ecu.edu). Review of applications will begin October 31, 2018 and continue until the position is filled.
