Job Posting: Environmental Science Adjunct Instructor

Environmental Science Adjunct Instructor, University of Montevallo

University of Montevallo is looking for instructors for our Environmental Science general education course.

This course uses scientific principles to explore the interdisciplinary study of socio-ecological systems. Students develop a knowledge base of our biological and physical environment, leading to an exploration of human interactions with the environment. Using lectures, laboratory exercises, and fieldwork, students learn to understand environmental issues and make informed choices regarding environmental dilemmas. Topics include earth and biological systems, population dynamics, land and water use, energy resources, pollution, and global change.

The course meets for lecture 2.5 hours per week for 16 weeks per semester (which can be broken into 1, 2, or 3 days per week), with an additional weekly 2-hour lab section that will ideally be taught during daylight hours, as the labs are often outside. Minimum qualifications include a Master’s Degree in Environmental Science or a related field. We are seeking instructors for Fall of 2018, and we would prefer to get a commitment in January/February of 2018, as we decide on course offerings for the Fall at that time. Interested individuals should submit their CV at and email Dr. Susan Caplow at
