Position Details

Position Description

The Division of Science and Mathematics at University of Washington Tacoma invites applications for a faculty position at the rank of “lecturer part-time temporary”, to teach the 5 credit undergraduate courses Federal Environmental Law (in Winter quarter, January 4, – March 19, 2021) and Washington Environmental Law (in Spring quarter, March 29 – June 11, 2021).  These courses review the critical elements of major environmental statutes, and the basic procedural requirements of environmental litigation.  In addition, the courses should provide a broad discussion of the intersection between environmental law and regulations, public policy, and tribal law.  Each of these quarterly appointments are contingent upon adequate student enrollment.

The successful candidate is expected to engage with culturally diverse populations in higher education, integrate evidence-based and inclusive pedagogical techniques and technologies, and maintain high expectations for student learning.  Instructor responsibilities include delivery of course content, scheduling office hours and being accessible to students as appropriate, and grading.

The University of Washington is committed to building diversity among its faculty, librarian, staff, and student communities, and articulates that commitment in the UW Diversity Blueprint (http://www.washington.edu/diversity/diversity-blueprint/). Additionally, the University’s Faculty Code recognizes faculty efforts in research, teaching and/or service that address diversity and equal opportunity as important contributions to a faculty member’s academic profile and responsibilities (https://www.washington.edu/admin/rules/policies/FCG/FCCH24.html#2432).

The Tacoma campus of the University of Washington was founded in 1990 with an interdisciplinary approach at its foundation. It has evolved into a thriving downtown campus that serves students of a wide variety of ages and backgrounds in the South Puget Sound. Faculty have access to the resources of the University of Washington, a major research university, including an extensive library system, but work and teach within a small campus setting. Our campus provides a supportive environment for the development of creative teaching, research and community collaborations. The campus commitment to equity and inclusion is central to maintaining an atmosphere where students, staff, and faculty find abundant opportunities for intellectual, personal and professional growth within our campus and broader community.

Applicants should hold a Ph.D. or JD degree in Environmental Law or Environmental Policy and Regulation or a closely related field. Priority will be given to candidates with previous experience teaching at the undergraduate level.


Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.  Applications must include a curriculum vitae, three letters of reference, and a cover letter outlining qualifications and approach to improving student success.  In their letter, applicants should detail how their teaching has supported the success of students from racial, ethnic, and gender backgrounds that are underrepresented in their academic field; applicants who have not yet had the opportunity for such experience should note how their work will further UW Tacoma’s commitment to diversity.   Questions can be emailed to Joyce Dinglasan-Panlilio (jdingpan@uw.edu), the chair of the Division of Sciences and Mathematics.
