    Mellon Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Environmental Studies

The Program in Environmental Studies at Williams College invites 
applications for a post-doctoral fellowship in Environmental Studies, 
beginning July 1, 2016. We welcome applications from candidates who have 
completed their PhD. within the last five years and also those who have 
not yet completed their Ph.D. but will have the PhD. in hand by the

to the curriculum and vitality of our interdisciplinary program. The 
successful candidate will have training in one or more of the following 
fields: history, anthropology, sociology, environmental studies, 
cultural geography, public policy, economics, philosophy or a related 
field. Candidates with expertise in agricultural sustainability and food 
studies are preferred.

The position requires vision and initiative and a desire to join our 
vibrant community of environmental scholars, practitioners and 
activists.  Williams is an institution that places a high value on 
undergraduate teaching; consequently, we strongly prefer applicants who 
can demonstrate a capacity for excellent teaching and who have a 
commitment to working effectively with a student population that is 
broadly diverse with regard to gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, 
sexual orientation, and religion.

The successful candidate will be appointed for a term of two years and 
will have a teaching load of one course each semester. The baseline 
stipend for these positions is $44,000 per year plus an allowance of
