Tenure-track Assistant, Associate or Full Professor in Climate Change

Institute at Brown for Environment and Society

Brown University

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, organizations, 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.

minorities are strongly encouraged to apply. Send materials to:
