Lecturer - Environmental Science and Policy


The Department of Environmental Science and Policy at the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine, Atmospheric, and Earth Science is recruiting a lecturer.

The core responsibilities include 1) directorship of our environmental science and policy undergraduate program in marine affairs, 2) instruction in spatial analysis courses central to undergraduate and professional master’s (MPS) programs across the school, and 3) support for MPS tracks, especially coastal zone management and marine conservation.


The Department’s mission is solutions-oriented, policy-relevant research and scholarship, training the next generations of environmental managers, practitioners, and research scientists (https://environmental-science-policy.earth.miami.edu/). Our faculty are leading scholars in the applied environmental social sciences dedicated to addressing pressing ocean, coastal, and climate challenges central to long-term sustainability and resilience. We are the hub at the Rosenstiel School for connecting the natural sciences with society and policy. Our work is supported by major university-wide interdisciplinary initiatives, such as the Abess Center for Ecosystem Science and Policy and the University Laboratory for Integrative Knowledge (U-LINK). 


We particularly seek candidates with experiences, skills, and vision relevant to overseeing a thriving undergraduate program and effectively engaging with students in and out of the classroom. Successful candidates may draw from diverse backgrounds, including but not limited to environmental governance and justice, geography, data science, planning, public health, anthropology, or the behavioral, decision, and economic sciences. Applicants must have a J.D. or Ph.D. in Environmental Science and Policy or related field by the expected start date of January 2024.


We are especially interested in scholars who demonstrate evidence of promoting diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in teaching, service, and research.


The Department of Environmental Science and Policy is grounded in the intrinsic relationship between diversity and excellence and is strongly committed to fostering and sustaining open, equitable access to learning as our mission and our obligation. In turn, we seek faculty who would add to the long-standing goal of increasing diversity across our departments.


Applications will be considered at the Lecturer rank and possibly the Senior Lecturer rank for candidates with exceptional qualifications. The appointment is expected to start in January 2024.  To be eligible for each appointment, candidates must hold a Ph.D. or terminal degree in their field by the appointment start date.
