The Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies is looking for a part-time lecturer for its course in Life Cycle Assessment (the most recent description). The course is a core course of the Industrial Ecology and Green Chemistry track of the 2-year Master of Environmental Management program and typically enrolls between 25-30 students. It currently runs during spring semesters. The objectives of the course is to teach students the fundamentals of life cycle assessment, so that they understand the theory, are able to interpret LCA results, and learn how to conduct their own LCAs using case studies prepared by the instructor. Further, they should understand potential applications of LCA in a business context. The course prepares students for a capstone project or thesis.
Yale is looking for an individual with a proven track record of using LCA as a practitioner or researcher and who lives within easy travel distance of New Haven, Connecticut. Teaching experience is advantageous.
Lecturers are normally supported by a teaching fellow and enumeration is on the order of $10000.
For suitable individuals, the position may be combined with a part-time appointment as PostDoc Associate on the LCA of High-End Manufacturing to make for a full position.
If you are interested, please send a cover letter describing your teaching experience and LCA skills, your CV, and, if available, teaching evaluations to firstname.lastname@example.org.
