Application for Assistant Professor Geography

Dear Hiring Manager,

As an Adjunct Instructor and recent Doctorate of Geography in Human Geography and Sustainability graduate, I apply with enthusiasm for this opportunity.

I currently hold the part-time position of Adjunct Instructor in the Department of Geography and Geology at the University of Sunnybank. In addition to instructional and lesson planning, I grade papers and tests, and proctor GIS labs. Prior to this, I taught Introduction to Anthropology as a graduate student, substituting as needed for the two Anthropology professors I taught under. 

Concurrently, I am also a Research Assistant in the university’s Office of Research Integrity, where my focus is on population and social geography. Furthermore, I assisted with the research and writing of "Chapter 8: Urban Regeneration, Economic Development" in Dr. Eleanor Hauska’s (2019) Human Geography and Sustainability: The 21st Century Landscape.

In addition to 4 years of research and teaching experience and my recent doctorate, I hold a Master of Urban Regeneration and a Bachelor of Geography. I am highly tech-literate and enjoy teaching students how to use the software required for statistical spreadsheets, relational databases, and presentation documents, as well as how to carry out data, modelling, and mapping requests.

I have enjoyed my time at the University of Sunnybank, and am grateful for the excellent research and teaching opportunities offered. I am now seeking an Assistant Professor role that will enable me to drive sustainable human activity through hands-on teaching and scholarly responsibilities.

Please find attached my curriculum vitae for your consideration. Thank you very much for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you. 

Yours sincerely,

John Wall
