Hello Greg and PPGIS comrades:

I hope this email finds you well and enjoying the last days of summer. Please see the below job advert we've just begun circulating.

I'd be happy to answer questions, or you can contact the search committee chair, Matt Huber @ mthuber@maxwell.syr.edumailto:mthuber@maxwell.syr.edu.

And, no I'm not leaving! We're expanding community geography. Please forward widely!

The Department of Geography, the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, Syracuse University seeks to hire a human geographer with interests in community geography and participatory geographies at the rank of assistant professor. This is a tenure-track appointment. Ph.D. required at time of appointment. Submission deadline: October 15th, 2018.
We seek a human geographer whose research and teaching focus on some combination of the following areas: community geography, participatory (action) research, participatory mapping or participatory GIS, and/or community-based scholarship focused on social change. We expect to hire a scholar poised to make a significant theoretical contribution to key subfields in critical human geography, but whose work is also empirically rooted, preferably in the Global South. Possible areas of research expertise include social and environmental justice, inequality, public health, development, poverty, indigenous geographies, disaster management, social movements, and the digital humanities. Applications from candidates with experience with multiple methods, especially participatory and critical GIS, historical GIS, geovisualization techniques, community mapping, and other innovative participatory methods, are welcome, as are applications from scholars emphasizing socially relevant, publicly engaged, or action-oriented scholarship on inequality and social change. Candidates should demonstrate clear evidence of a strong research program moving forward and of significant promise in teaching. The most competitive candidates will see synergistic opportunities with existing strengths in our Department, such as the Syracuse Community Geography Program, as well as with the Maxwell School's commitment to socially relevant scholarship oriented toward public engagement. A Ph.D. is required at the time of appointment. The Department seeks candidates whose research, teaching, service, and/or lived experiences have prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and inclusion in our work with students, colleagues, and wider communities.
