*Adjunct Professor (Oceanography) at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, OR*
Lewis & Clark College, a private liberal arts college with about 2,000
undergraduates, invites applications for an adjunct professorship in the
Environmental Studies Program beginning Fall 2019. The successful candidate
will deliver a sophomore-level Oceanography course that consists of three
weekly one-hour lectures and a weekly 3-hour laboratory session (see
schedule and course description below). Ph.D. or ABD in Atmospheric, Ocean,
Climate Science or a related field required at the time of appointment.
Excellent classroom teaching and laboratory instruction at an undergraduate
institution is essential. The course material is somewhat flexible, such
that the instructor can emphasize their area(s) of expertise within the
field of Oceanography. The class size is typically around 10 students.
The College is committed to preparing students for leadership in an
increasingly interdependent world, and affirms the educational benefits of
diversity. (See http://www.lclark.edu/dept/about/diversity.html) A complete
application should include (1) a letter of application which includes a
statement of teaching philosophy, past teaching experience, and research
interests; (2) a curriculum vitae or resume; and (3) contact information
for three references. All materials should be addressed to Jessica Kleiss:
jkleiss at lclark.edu. Review of applications will begin on Monday, May 13th,
and continue until the position is filled. Feel free to contact me (
jkleiss at lclark.edu) with interest.
Course title: Issues in Oceanography
Course description: Exploration of the geological, chemical, and physical
dynamics of the global oceans, including implications of ocean policy.
Topics include geology of the sea floor, coastal erosion, waves, tides,
storm surge, sea-level rise, ocean circulation, composition of seawater,
biogeochemical cycles and ocean acidification. The course will be organized
around compelling issues in oceanography that may include deep-ocean
mining, coastal development, tsunami hazards, ocean pollution, or others.
Weekly labs provide hands-on experience with course concepts. Lecture and
Course schedule: Sept. 4th – Dec 11th

processes and 2) to Oregon beaches to examine beach and sediment processes.
