Call for Applications

The Geography Department at Middlebury College invites applicants for its GIS Teaching Fellows Program, designed to encourage the expansion of GIS instruction across the liberal arts curriculum.  We seek recent doctoral recipients or advanced ABD candidates from any academic discipline who have applied GI technologies and methods in their doctoral research and have demonstrated excellence in undergraduate teaching. Middlebury’s GIS Teaching Fellows will be appointed to a one- or two-year term, to begin in September 2015. In the fall semester, Fellows will assist Geography Department faculty in teaching the department’s Fundamentals of GIS course. In addition, Fellows will participate in a weekly seminar focused on GIS pedagogy, during which each Fellow will develop a new GIS-based course related to his or her area of expertise. In the spring semester, the Fellows will jointly teach the Fundamentals course and their own newly developed courses. Teaching Fellows will be expected to be resident at Middlebury College between September-May during the fellowship.

Middlebury College is a top-tier liberal arts college with a demonstrated commitment to excellence. An Equal Opportunity Employer, the College is committed to hiring a diverse staff and faculty as we work to foster innovation in our curriculum and to provide a rich and varied educational experience to our increasingly diverse student body.
