Hi All,

*Apologies for x-posting*

Please see the below ad for a *tenure track position in Community Geography
*at Syracuse University. Please feel free to share widely!

All the best,

Matt Huber


The Department of Geography, the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public
Affairs, Syracuse University seeks to hire *a human geographer with
interests in community geography and participatory geographies at the rank
of assistant professor*. This is a tenure-track appointment. Ph.D. required
at time of appointment. Submission deadline: *October 15th, 2018.*

We seek a human geographer whose research and teaching focus on some
combination of the following areas: community geography, participatory
(action) research, participatory mapping or participatory GIS, and/or
community-based scholarship focused on social change. We expect to hire a
scholar poised to make a significant theoretical contribution to key
subfields in critical human geography, but whose work is also empirically
rooted, preferably in the Global South. Possible areas of research
expertise include social and environmental justice, inequality, public
health, development, poverty, indigenous geographies, disaster management,
social movements, and the digital humanities. Applications from candidates
with experience with multiple methods, especially participatory and critical
 GIS, historical GIS, geovisualization techniques, community mapping, and
other innovative participatory methods, are welcome, as are applications
from scholars emphasizing socially relevant, publicly engaged, or
action-oriented scholarship on inequality and social change. Candidates
should demonstrate clear evidence of a strong research program moving
forward and of significant promise in teaching. The most competitive
candidates will see synergistic opportunities with existing strengths in
our Department, such as the Syracuse Community Geography Program, as well
as with the Maxwell School’s commitment to socially relevant scholarship
oriented toward public engagement. A Ph.D. is required at the time of
appointment. The Department seeks candidates whose research, teaching,
service, and/or lived experiences have prepared them to contribute to our
commitment to diversity and inclusion in our work with students,
colleagues, and wider communities.
