Middlebury College's Program in Environmental Studies seeks a full-time tenure-track faculty member in the environmental social sciences, broadly defined, beginning in Fall 2014. Appointment will be at the assistant professor level. We seek a social scientist (Ph.D. or A.B.D. in an appropriate field) with research and teaching interests related to the global/international environment and/or global/international environmental inequality and issues related to diversity. Possible areas of expertise may include, but are not limited to: management or governance of water resources, solid waste, toxics, or climate change; global resource use (oceans, forests, rivers, lakes, air, fish and wildlife, fossil fuels); global/international relations of power and inequality with regard to those or other topics; or unequal distribution of environmental benefits and burdens on a global/international scale. This colleague will teach our introductory course in environmental policy, as well as our senior capstone seminar based on community-connected learning in collaboration with community partners. Other courses may include a seminar in a relevant area of expertise as well as broader offerings on global environmental challenges. College-wide teaching contributions will include first-year seminars and advising within and beyond the Environmental Studies major and minor.
