Assistant Professor - Economic Geographer
UW - Whitewater - Whitewater, WI
|Deadline to apply:||10/25/2012|
Tenure Track Assistant Professor beginning August 2013. Ph.D. required; ABD considered. Prior teaching experience preferred (two years of teaching assistant level or equivalent). The department seeks an Economic Geographer with expertise in areas that complement but not duplicate strengths in GIS and environmental, urban, and political geography. Desirable specialties include but are not limited to business location analysis, environmental and natural resource economics, sustainable development, transportation, or rural development. Technical expertise in GIS and spatial analysis is required.
Teaching duties will include core courses in the general education curriculum (e.g. Global Perspectives) and courses in Economic Geography and Business GIS. The candidate is also expected to develop upper-level courses in areas of expertise. In addition, we desire someone with practical business experience, a willingness to engage with private-sector partners, and the ability to establish internships for our students. A regional specialty outside North America is a plus but not required.
This position requires a strong commitment to undergraduate education, which includes involvement in the department’s internship program and the University’s undergraduate research program. Candidates must have experience and be able to work with a diverse population. In addition, the successful candidate will have an active research agenda, seek external research funding, and publish scholarly articles.
