Teaching Assistant: ENVIR 503/PBAF 597 Spring '08
Search for Req # 41663

The Program on the Environment (PoE) was established in 1997 to foster and promote interdisciplinary environmental education at the University of Washington (UW).

PoE offers a Bachelor of Arts degree in Environmental Studies, a Minor in Environmental Studies, and two graduate certificate programs. Program on the Environment also coordinates the undergraduate certificate in Restoration Ecology, in cooperation with the Restoration Ecology Network. In addition, PoE serves as a focal point for information exchange on environmental education opportunities at the UW. PoE's programs provide students knowledge in four domains of inquiry: natural sciences; social sciences; law, policy, and management; and ethics, values, and culture. PoE merges these fields through rigorous coursework and hands-on learning within the community to provide a unique opportunity for students and faculty to explore complex environmental issues from multiple perspectives. As a focal point of environmental studies at UW, PoE is well positioned to bring campus and community together and to educate future environmental leaders.

We have an opening for a part-time (50% FTE) temporary (April 8 – June 15, 2008) Teaching Assistantship will be available for ENVIR 503/PBAF 597: Role of Scientific Information in Environmental Decision Making during Spring Quarter 2008.
