Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Erb Institute at the University of Michigan is a joint program between the Stephen M. Ross School of Business and the School for Environment and Sustainability. The Erb Institute is focused on addressing the world’s sustainability challenges, broadly defined, by challenging and shaping markets, the private sector, and other impact-focused organizations to become sources of positive solutions. The Institute emphasizes scholarly research and externally-focused engagement as vehicles for shaping thinking and dialogue about how the private and impact sectors may help to create a more just and sustainable world.

Researchers at the Erb Institute are global in their approach, think in terms of systems, and adopt a broad view of sustainability, which includes the social, environmental and economic impacts of business. We seek scholars whose research and academic interests sit at the nexus of sustainability and business/markets.

Through January 15, 2021, we will be accepting applications from talented early-career scholars who in addition to conducting high-quality and impactful research, will also participate in seeking external funding related to their research, write jointly-authored and peer-reviewed articles, and contribute content for a broad array of audiences.
