Lecturer in Ecology
The Odum School of Ecology at the University of Georgia invites applications for two full-time Lecturers (non-tenure track) to contribute to instructional offerings in our B.S. and A.B. undergraduate degree programs in ecology and to provide support for administering these programs. One position is for a 12-month lecturer, and a second position is for a 10-month lecturer. We seek candidates who are passionate about quality undergraduate education and who can contribute to advising and mentoring of students interested in either traditional ecological science careers (through the B.S. degree), or in careers focused on translation of ecological science into policy, management, and other applications (via the A.B. degree). Applicants must show evidence of excellence in teaching, an ability to collaboratively and creatively lead and support a growing undergraduate academic program, and excellent organizational skills. To apply, candidates must have a Ph.D. or terminal degree in ecology or a related field, such as sustainability, conservation biology or environmental policy.
For a full description of both positions, and instructions on how to apply, please see our webpages at: http://www.ecology.uga.edu/generalInformation.php?Positions_Available-15/
Applications should be received by 18 Sep 2017 to ensure full consideration.

To apply for the 10-month position, candidates should electronically submit their application at http://facultyjobs.uga.edu/postings/2594
