The Morrissey College of Arts and Sciences at Boston College invites applications for the position of Core Visiting Assistant Professor/Core Renewal Fellow in Environmental Studies. The appointment for this one-year postdoctoral visiting assistant professorship will be for the 2017–2018 academic year. Salary is competitive, and the position is potentially renewable. As a Jesuit, Catholic institution, Boston College requires all students to complete a fifteen-course liberal arts Core Curriculum as the foundation of their undergraduate education. Core Visiting Assistant Professors will teach signature courses in the Core. Developed for first-year students, these interdisciplinary Complex Problems and Enduring Questions courses are part of an ongoing revitalization of the Core Curriculum. You can learn more about BC’s Core Renewal here.
In one semester, the visiting assistant professor will teach project-based lab sections associated with a Complex Problems course, “Global Implications of Climate Change,” co-taught by faculty from Sociology and Earth and Environmental Studies. In the other semester, he/she will teach two courses: an Enduring Questions course (paired with a second course designed with another Core visiting professor from Science and Technology Studies) and an elective in his/her field.
