Tenure-track Assistant, Associate or Full Professor in Climate Change Department of Anthropology and Institute at Brown for Environment and Society Brown University
The Department of Anthropology and the Institute at Brown for Environment and Society (IBES) seek candidates of any rank for an endowed university chair in the area of climate change. This is part of a broader search by IBES that seeks to fill endowed university chairs with a tenure or tenure-track home in a participating department. The broader search invites applications from rising leaders in the public health, natural, social, and environmental justice aspects of climate change to create a multidisciplinary network of collaborative research.
Specifically, the Department of Anthropology seeks to hire an anthropologist of the environment with a focus on climate change. The successful applicant will have an outstanding record of research and teaching that complements the strengths of both the Department of Anthropology and IBES, with an interest in working across both units. Theoretical and conceptual approaches may include, but are not limited to: political ecology, science and technology studies, and other perspectives that explore climate change and its impact on society and human life. Topics may include, but are not limited to: human and environmental health; relationships between local and elite knowledge practices, biodiversity conservation, climate change advocacy, environmental governance, and climate justice. Geographic area is open.
Candidates of any rank will be considered. 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.
Applicants must have a PhD in anthropology or related discipline at the time of starting work. 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); (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. Interested candidates should feel free to contact Professor Daniel Jordan Smith (email@example.com) for further information.
Full consideration will be given to applications received by October 1st, 2018, but 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.
