This page is for ongoing Geography Searches for 2011-2012Edit

Good luck to everyone again this year! I'm hoping to put very broad geography positions here, so please feel free to include physical and human geography and everything in between. I'm including some international studies/global studies jobs here, because Human Geography is a closely related discipline.
