The Environmental Humanities Graduate Program seeks to add a new faculty member, beginning fall 2014, who will assume a leadership role in the program, perhaps as the next Director. The successful candidate will be appointed to the home department within the College of Humanities most relevant to his/her research and teaching specialization. We are especially interested in accomplished scholar/teachers whose research and teaching methods utilize an interdisciplinary approach to environmental issues, field-based and community-engaged learning, and whose record includes innovative administrative service.
The Environmental Humanities Program is the first of its kind in the country, with a substantial endowment, and a renowned group of permanent faculty and visiting scholars. It has a beautiful new education center in the Centennial Valley of Montana and will participate in the curriculum offered at the University's South Korean campus, opening in 2014.
