ShouseUofL is hiring a new faculty member to become the full-time Director of our Masters degree program in Interdisciplinary Studies: Concentration in Sustainability.

The Hiring Committee has narrowed the field of candidates down to three, all of whom have been invited to campus for your chance to meet them and give feedback to the Committee.

Our final candidate, Dr. Michael Shouse, will give a public job talk on "Interdisciplinary Teacher-Scholar Successes and Opportunities in Kentucky's Built, Natural, and Social Environments."

Dr. Shouse is currently a Professor of Geography at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, who teaches courses on Physical Geology & Geography; Natural Resources and Sustainability; Biogeography; Animal Biogeography; Conservation Biogeography; Geographic Information Systems; and Natural Resources Issues and Conflict.

His research focuses on biogeography, geomorphology, forestry, and soils, where he is interested in understanding the patterns, processes, and reciprocal interactions that exist in, and between the biosphere, pedosphere, and lithosphere. Central to his research interests are the spatiotemporal and scale dimensions of biological invasion, soil variability, ecological heterogeneity, threatened and endangered species habitat, and biophysical pattern-process dynamics.

There will be several opportunities to sit down with the candidate for individual/small group meetings in Room 216 of the Urban Studies building (426 W. Bloom). The times available are:
      9:15 - 9:45am
      9:45 - 10:15am
      10:15 - 10:45am
Drop-ins are welcome but you may RSVP to for the time slot you wish to attend.
