The School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning (SGSUP) at Arizona State University (ASU) invites applications for a full-time, benefits-eligible, non-tenure eligible Assistant Teaching Professor position in geography. We especially encourage applicants who can contribute to teaching across the geography curriculum. Particular needs at this time include lecture and laboratory classes in physical geography and meteorology and global change. However, we also anticipate opportunities for the new assistant teaching professor to contribute to various courses in human geography, and elective courses serving our MA and MS degrees in geography.

The successful candidate will contribute to teaching in SGSUP’s Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts degree programs in a variety of modalities (in-person, hybrid, and online). The Assistant Teaching Professor will be responsible for eight (8) courses each academic year that will include an array of courses primarily, but not exclusively at the undergraduate level. Some of the course load may include assisting in the development of new courses or transition of existing courses into online teaching modalities. The Assistant Teaching Professor will also maintain a service load of 20% FTE which will include serving on unit and/or college committees, and supporting student organizations related to geography.

  • Doctorate in geography or related field by the time of appointment.
  • Evidence of teaching or mentoring undergraduate and/or graduate students in the geography discipline.
  • Demonstrated ability to work well independently and manage multiple tasks.
