      Position Information

Position Title 	Assistant Professor in Environmental Humanities
Position Type 	Humanities/ History/ Philosophy
Position Description 	

The School of Arts and Sciences at the University of Pennsylvania 
invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor appointment 
in environmental humanities, broadly interpreted to embrace disciplinary 
and interdisciplinary approaches from the humanities, social sciences, 
and natural sciences. We are interested in exceptional scholars who take 
innovative, pioneering approaches to such areas of inquiry as history 
and the environment; the arts, culture and the environment; 
environmental ethics and philosophy; environmental theory; environmental 
justice in a global perspective; the Anthropocene; the nonhuman in the 
humanities; and varieties of environmental knowledge. The successful 
candidate’s primary appointment will be in one of the following 
departments: Anthropology, Earth and Environmental Science, English, 
German, History, History and Sociology of Science, or Philosophy. 
Secondary appointments in other departments can be arranged, as 
appropriate. This will be the first in a cluster of appointments in 
various aspects of the environmental humanities. The successful 
candidate should therefore have a strong interest in building such a 
program and in interacting with scholars from other disciplines whose 
research lies within the overarching theme of environmental humanities. 
The successful candidate will teach courses in her or his home 
department and will participate in the development of curriculum 
pertinent to the theme of the cluster.

Applications should be submitted on-line at 
http://facultysearches.provost.upenn.edu/postings/990 and include a 
curriculum vitae, a research statement that includes the candidate’s 
perspective on how she or he fits into one of the core departments, an 
uploaded publication (either a link to a journal publication or some 
other writing sample), and the contact information for three individuals 
who will be contacted by the University with instructions on how to 
submit a letter of recommendation. Review of applications will begin 
November 3, 2016, and will continue until the position is filled. The 
School of Arts and Sciences is strongly committed to Penn’s Action Plan 
for Faculty Diversity and Excellence and to creating a more diverse 
faculty (for more information see:
