Continuing Faculty Positions

How to Prepare a Diversity Statement


Temporary Faculty Positions

Visiting Lecturer/s in Physics and Astronomy

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Pomona College, the founding member of the Claremont Colleges, invites applications for multiple part-time positions at the level of Lecturer for the Spring 2021 semester. Candidates must have a strong commitment to high-quality undergraduate teaching in a liberal arts environment to exceptional students from diverse backgrounds. At least some of these positions may be filled by faculty working remotely and do not require the instructor to be on campus. We are interested in hiring instructors for both laboratory and lecture courses and previous experience teaching remotely is desirable. While research is not part of the job description, the department is eager to hear from candidates who are research active and current post-docs and graduate students are encouraged to apply. Applicants should send a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, undergraduate and graduate transcripts, a statement of teaching philosophy, and names and contact information of three references along with their application. https://theclaremontcolleges.wd1.myworkdayjobs.com/en-US/POM_Careers/job/Claremont/Visiting-Lecturer-Position-in-Physics---Astronomy-_REQ-2685

Visiting Lecturer/s in Environmental Analysis and GIS

The Environmental Analysis Program is seeking lecturers to teach introductory courses in Environmental Analysis and Geographical Information Systems (GIS). The adjunct lecture can teach one or more courses during the semester, relative to their particular interests and knowledge base.

EA10 Introduction to Environmental Analysis:  Examines the history of environmental change over the past century, the environmental ramifications of economic and technological decisions, lifestyles and personal choice and the need to evaluate environmental arguments critically. Students consider the complexities and conflicts between economic development, population growth, and environmental resources through selected readings, class discussions, interactive lectures, multimedia, written papers, quizzes, and problem sets. The popular course is often the only Environmental Analysis course taken and is in high demand.

EA101 Introduction to Geographic Information Systems for Environmental Analysis. This course provides an introduction and overview of GIS – specifically, ESRI WebGIS and ArcGIS mapping software – to demonstrate the basic analysis of spatial data for those interested in answering questions about the spatial significance of environmental justice, racial inequality, hazard exposure, and health equity. This introductory course will teach students how to use ESRI ArcGIS mapping software to create and analyze digital maps in order to highlight disparities that are often hidden. By engaging with critical geography theory, this course, provides students with the capacity to evaluate the processes of map making, as a dialectic that can encourage discourse into the complexities of spatially explicit physical, cultural, and political processes that may improve or worsen environmental outcomes.

EA102 Advanced GIS. This project-based course provides students with an opportunity to deepen their understanding of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) as it applies to address environmental problems (broadly defined). Throughout the course, students will engage with applications and tools for analyzing environmental resources and hazards that differentially affect populations. Building on core concepts gained from the Introductory GIS course, this class will pay particular attention to the spatial analysis tools available in ArcGIS Desktop and how they integrate with ArcGIS Online. Further, special attention will be given toward critically engaging with these spatial analytic tools.

Pomona’s Environmental Analysis Program is one of the most highly ranked programs among liberal arts colleges. In collaboration with the other Claremont Colleges, the EA Program provides opportunities for students to study environmental issues from a range of disciplinary perspectives such as economics, sustainability planning and design, environmental biology, and geology and the critical zone. Students in the major have a wide range of interests and appreciate faculty who can move between disciplines with some facility.

Please send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and teaching evaluations to the Program Administrator, Lori Keala (lkeala@pomona.edu) and direct questions to the Program Coordinator, Marc Los Huertos (marc.loshuertos@pomona.edu).

Lecturer in Computer Science
