Lecturer or Professional Practice Assistant Professor

The Department of Environment and Society (ENVS) at Utah State University (USU) invites applications for two term appointment faculty teaching positions (Lecturer or Professional Practice Assistant Professor) to support a new program in Remote Sensing and Geospatial Artificial Intelligence (GeoAI).

We seek candidates who can holistically apply innovative GeoAI methods such as machine and deep learning, multidimensional data analysis, and big data visualization to natural resource applications. Teaching areas may include remote sensing, GeoAI applications in natural resources, geospatial programming courses in Python, ethics related to geospatial data and artificial intelligence, Google Earth Engine, and geovisualization techniques specific to remote sensing. These two non-tenure-track, full-time academic-year (nine-month) faculty positions are based at the USU main campus in Logan. The emphasis for each position is 95% teaching and 5% service. Funding for these positions is secured for two years and ENVS will be seeking ongoing funding. The positions start August 1, 2024. Minimum qualifications include a master’s degree or higher with a focus on geospatial science in a human-environment context and demonstrated expertise in remote sensing and geospatial artificial intelligence.

Application review begins February 16, 2024, and continues until the position is filled.
