Company: Brown University
Location: Providence
Posted on: July 13, 2018

Job Description:

Tenure-track Assistant, Associate or Full Professor in Climate Change The Institute at Brown for Environment and Society -- jointly with the Departments of Anthropology; Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences; Ecology and Evolutionary Biology; Epidemiology; and Sociology -- invites applications from rising leaders in the natural, social, public health, and environmental justice aspects of climate change. This open rank search will seek to fill endowed university chairs with a tenure or tenure-track home in any of the participating departments. Even though the positions are for endowed chairs, we are seeking an excellent and diverse pool of applicants at any rank. The endowed chairs are named faculty positions that include a small fund in perpetuity (in addition to start up funds) to assist chair holders in achieving their research and teaching goals. We are particularly interested in scholars who demonstrate research excellence, an interest in working to promote diversity and inclusion in environmental disciplines, and a dedication to teaching and research mentoring. The successful applicant will have an outstanding record of research and teaching that complements the strengths of both the intended home department and the institute, while demonstrating the potential to work across both units. IBES supports research to understand the interactions between natural, human and social systems. We cultivate strong research in five disciplinary areas: conservation science, land change science, climate science, environmental health, and institutions and human behavior. We are also looking to build upon globally emerging strategic research directions in migration and environmental justice, but our interests are not limited to these areas. Our teaching programs prepare future leaders to envision and build a just and sustainable world. The Institute also seeks to consolidate and bridge the departmental interest areas listed below. The Department of Anthropology seeks to hire an anthropologist of the environment with a focus on political ecology, political economy and science and technology studies. The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology is--interested in a--scholar--whose research addresses pressing issues in the science of environmental change that are particularly informed by questions in ecology or evolutionary biology. The Department of Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences (DEEPS) is particularly looking to consolidate strengths in areas of past and future climate change, sea level rise, and the geophysics of glaciology. The Department of Epidemiology seeks to build further strength in the area of climate and health, including the impacts of sea level rise, urbanization, ecosystem change, or extreme weather events. The Department of Sociology seeks to hire a scholar whose research on environment intersects with one or more areas of existing and emerging strength including demography, development, economic sociology, education, gender, health, political sociology, race/ethnicity, and urban and spatial sociology. Applicants must have a PhD at the time of starting work. The start date can be July 1 or Sept 1, 2019 or Jan 1, 2020. All candidates should submit: (1) a teaching statement; (2) a research statement; (3) a diversity and inclusion statement (4) a curriculum vitae; (5) two writing samples (which may be a journal article, book prospectus, book chapter, or other appropriate product); and (6) a cover letter describing their interest in the position. Candidates currently holding tenured faculty positions should provide the names of three referees; these referees will not be contacted without prior authorization from the candidate. Candidates that do not currently hold a tenured faculty position should have three letters of reference submitted before the application deadline. Candidates should indicate their preferred tenure home department at the time of application.--Candidates should feel free to contact the Director of IBES or the Chair of their proposed home department for further information. Full consideration will be given to applications received by October 1st, 2018; we will continue to accept applications until the position is filled. Brown is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer, and women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.
