Full Text of JOE Listing:

The newly established Schiller Institute for Integrated Science and Society enhances multi-disciplinary, collaborative research and pedagogies that address critical societal issues in the areas of energy, health and the environment. More information can be found on the Institute's website:

As the start of a multi-year faculty hiring initiative, the Institute seeks four faculty at the rank of Associate or Full Professor in two broad areas: a) climate change science, mitigation and adaptation, and b) the energy transition. Successful candidates will serve jointly as core Institute faculty members and as members of a home department.

Now in its nascent and dynamic growth phase, the Institute seeks four visionary scholar-leaders for its unique and interdisciplinary inaugural cohort. Institute faculty members will strengthen the research profile of the university; stimulate collaborative, problem-focused research; develop, design, and participate in interdisciplinary curricula and co-curricular activities; build partnerships with leading institutions and organizations; and advance the results of BC applied research into the public sphere.

In the area of climate change impact, mitigation and adaptation, the Institute seeks faculty with well-developed research programs in areas such as climate science, earth system modeling, socio-environmental systems modeling, climate justice, adaptation through emerging technologies or nature-based solutions, societal determinants and consequences of climate change, and impact-based analysis and forecasting. In the area of energy transition, the Institute seeks faculty with significant research programs in science and technologies for renewable energy harvesting, conversion, and utilization, energy storage, and improving energy efficiency; energy poverty; or the societal transition to cleaner/more efficient technologies. Individual faculty are invited to apply; interdisciplinary research teams may also apply as a group.

Applications should include a letter describing the applicant’s interest in the position and relevant experience, a curriculum vitae, and a 2-3-page research statement.

Applications should be submitted through Interfolio:
