Lecturer position in Natural Resources/Wildlife Ecology (Iowa, USA)

The Department of Natural Resource Ecology and Management (NREM) at Iowa State University seeks to fill a Lecturer or Senior Lecturer position in natural resources with a focus on wildlife ecology. This is a 12-month non-tenure eligible appointment.

Primary teaching responsibilities will be linked with a summer field education program primarily for undergraduate students being developed at an ISU-owned field station in Montana. The incumbent will prepare for, coordinate and direct the summer camp and provide leadership for a set of courses at the camp. He or she will work closely with NREM faculty and staff to facilitate camp operations, teaching needs, and logistics.

In addition, the incumbent will have teaching responsibilities during the fall and spring semester. Although focused on wildlife and their surrounding habitat, there are other important land use, water quality, and climate change topics that could be taught. The incumbent will be required to provide on-site management and supervision of the camp facilities. The successful candidate will be a dedicated educator with strong field skills relevant to the field camp curriculum and with management skills.

Evidence of excellent written and oral communication skills and a demonstrated ability to work independently is required. The successful candidate will help to promote and oversee expanded use of the facility, such as by other departments at Iowa State, other universities, and other educational-oriented groups as needed.
