The Department of Forest Resources and Environmental Conservation at Virginia Tech seeks applicants for a collegiate assistant professor position in the area of Environmental Informatics. Collegiate faculty members have a primary commitment to the instructional mission of the department, including undergraduate teaching, curricular and program development, and the design and integration of innovative and inclusive pedagogy. The individual will be a core member of the faculty team responsible for teaching in our Environmental Informatics major. This teaching role includes four undergraduate courses: Digital Planet, Introduction to Environmental Informatics, Information Technologies for Natural Resources Management, and a senior-level experiential learning course in environmental informatics. More information about these courses can be found in the undergraduate catalog. Collegiate faculty members may conduct research on the scholarship of teaching and learning and/or on disciplinary topics and present their findings in professional venues, but there are no expectations for an extensive research program as is typical of tenure-track faculty appointments. The collegiate faculty rank is a non-tenure-track position that offers a clear promotion path through assistant, associate, and professor levels with long-term appointments.
