Adjunct Faculty, EES 210-01

Location: Moraga, CA
Open Date: Jun 06, 2023

Description: Founded in 1863, Saint Mary's is a residential campus nestled 20 miles east of San Francisco in the picturesque Moraga Valley. Based in the Catholic, Lasallian and Liberal Arts traditions, Saint Mary's currently enrolls more than 4,000 students from diverse backgrounds in undergraduate and graduate programs. The De La Salle Christian Brothers, the largest teaching order of the Roman Catholic Church, guide the spiritual and academic character of the College.

As a comprehensive and independent institution, Saint Mary's offers undergraduate and graduate programs integrating liberal and professional education. Saint Mary's reputation for excellence, innovation, and responsiveness in education stems from its vibrant heritage as a Catholic, Lasallian and Liberal Arts institution. An outstanding, committed faculty and staff that value shared inquiry, integrative learning, and student interaction bring these traditions to life in the 21st century. The College is committed to the educational benefits of diversity.

The natural environment contributes to and impacts society in various ways such as providing essential goods and services. Conversely, humans impact the environment, which often results in adverse effects. This course, therefore, examines natural systems with the goal of understanding physical and social causes of environmental problems, and strategies to mitigate or manage these issues. The physical, biological, geological and cultural dimensions of environmental problems are examined. Contemporary environmental issues such as population pressure, air and water pollution, climate change and desertification will be examined and discussed.

This course will be taught in person on the Moraga campus during the 2023 Fall term on Tuesday and Thursday from 8:00 - 9:15 am.

In addition to teaching, the instructor is expected to hold regular office hours (a minimum of one hour per week) in order to provide students with support outside of the classroom.

The successful candidate will hold an advanced degree in Environmental Science, Earth Science, or Earth Systems. Candidates should have a successful record of teaching experience at the undergraduate level and experience with online/hybrid instruction. Preference will be given to those who have previously taught EES 092.

This position requires all coursework to be performed in the state of California.

The salary range for this position is $7,449 - $10,008 (3 workload units) and is covered by the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the College and SEIU, Local 1021, available here.
