Lecturer, Forestry

The School of Forestry at Northern Arizona University invites applications for the position of Lecturer. This is a full-time, one-year appointment, with the possibility of renewal contingent upon successful performance, department needs and continued funding. The teaching expectation is for the equivalent of four courses per semester. Although the areas of expertise are open, we are seeking an individual with a strong background in general forestry, who can teach courses with both lecture and field components and at all levels in our undergraduate forestry program. Preference will be given to candidates who can teach or co-teach, at a minimum, the following courses: Introduction to Forestry, Forest Measurements, Watershed & Recreation Management, Forest Planning, and Forest Management. Depending on qualifications, teaching one or more courses in the area of wildland fire ecology and management is also a possibility. Teaching responsibilities may also include online or hybrid (online and in-person) courses. Research and other forms of scholarly activity are not an expectation for this position, and release time will not be allocated for them. Minimum Qualifications: An earned Ph.D. in forestry, natural resources, or a related field, conferred by the start date (August 19, 2019). Preferred Qualifications: (1) a record of college- or university-level teaching, or teaching assistant experience, (2) expertise in both quantitative and ecological applications of forestry, (3) practical field experience in forestry or natural resource management, and (4) a demonstrated commitment to student success and to working successfully with students from under-represented groups.
