Assistant Professor Cartography

The College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences (CEOAS) at Oregon State University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Critical Cartography. We seek a collaborative colleague who will develop and maintain a vigorous, externally-funded research program in the critical analysis of spatial data representation. Our new colleague will bring a record of scholarship and products in elements that could include critical cartography, geovisualization, interactive web mapping, data visualization, Big Data analytics, participatory mapping, critical theory, and cartographic design and theory.

The successful applicant will be a member of the Geography program in CEOAS and will teach both on-campus and online at all levels in our undergraduate and graduate curriculum, and will advise and mentor undergraduate students, graduate students, and post-doctoral scholars. We envision a colleague who can inspire and empower the next generation of scholars to think creatively and critically about the impacts of geospatial data collection, analysis, and representation on the communities and landscapes depicted on a map.

In all of their work, our colleague will show a demonstrated commitment to advancing equity and inclusion.
