I would appreciate it if you would share this position with relevant networks and contacts that might be interested.

The sustainability lecturer will play a key role in expanding sustainability education at UW–Madison by teaching existing courses at the Nelson Institute, such as Life Cycle Assessment and Introduction to Sustainability, as well as new offerings, such as the capstone course for the graduate sustainability certificate.
