Loyola University Chicago’s Institute of Environmental Sustainability (IES) invites applications for a full-time three-year faculty teaching position, with possibility of renewal, at the rank of Lecturer beginning in August 2018. We are seeking a candidate with expertise in plant ecology to support our programs in Conservation and Restoration Ecology and/or Food Systems and Sustainable Agriculture.

The successful candidate will be expected to teach introductory environmental science for both majors and non-majors, and to teach upper-level courses in plant ecology, restoration ecology, soil ecology, sustainable agriculture, bioremediation, and/or Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Candidates who approach these fields from diverse perspectives – for example by exploring social and policy dimensions – are encouraged to apply.


Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree in ecology, environmental science, or another relevant field. Candidates must have demonstrated success working with diverse populations of students and should have experience teaching undergraduate courses as the instructor of record.
