In addition, they will participate in departmental and university service and may serve as thesis advisor to masters level graduate students.

A Ph.D. in GIS/geography, urban/regional planning, or environmental science are preferred, but doctoral degrees in related disciplines, such as biology, civil and environmental engineering, economics, sociology, and political science, will also be considered. A strong record of teaching excellence in GIS is required. In addition, connections with professional public policy and planning practice would be highly valued.
