We are seeking a new, full-time provisional (similar to tenure track) remote sensing/statistics/LiDAR/photogrammetry/hydrology faculty starting mid to late Fall semester.

For the remainder of Fall semester, after hire, the faculty will begin to develop two upper division GIS 4000 level courses – Hydrology and Photogrammetry/LiDAR. Fall semester will not have teaching, service, nor office hours duties. These newly developed courses will run in the Spring semester (January – May), in addition to teaching Introduction to Remote Sensing (fully developed, 12 credits total).

  • Industry experience with LiDAR, Photogrammetry, and Remote Sensing
  • Experience/Knowledge with/of Geospatial Statistics and Geomorphology
  • Desire to teach at the Community College level in a challenging four-year program working with mostly non-traditional students (adult learners) eager to learn and apply applicable skills to industry positions
  • Willingness to participate in additional workshops, outreach, and recruiting efforts in the evening and on Fridays
  • Local to the Longmont CO campus (by January 15, 2023), as on campus teaching will be required some days of the week
  • Willingness to hold weekly or bi-weekly office hours on-campus in the GIS lab (drop-in help style)
  • Willingness to teach mostly night courses, 5:00-10:00 PM, Monday through Thursday. Afternoon and Saturday times available, but are dependent on student demand for course times (Saturdays not required but available, if the faculty would like to teach)
  • Willingness to attend required workshops and professional development events on Fridays, usually on the Longmont campus but occasionally on the Westminster campus
  • Overall Required Courses: Introduction to Remote Sensing (lower division), Advanced Remote Sensing, Photogrammety/LiDAR, GIS-Based Hydrology, GIS-Based Geomorphology, Geospatial Statistics, and Cartography (lower division)

The application deadline is October 21st!
