Ithaca College invites applications from interdisciplinary teachers and scholars for two renewable, non-tenure eligible Assistant Professor positions in Environmental Studies to begin Fall 2014. For the first position, we are seeking candidates whose work addresses environmental issues from a social science perspective and specializes in one of the following: the culture of sustainable agriculture and food systems, environmental justice, community organizing, or sustainable planning/design. The second position focuses on those whose work addresses humanistic perspectives on the human place in the natural world and we seek someone who will empower our students as change agents by helping them learn the ways values, aesthetics, and moral imagination shape human-environment interactions.
The successful candidates will play key roles in broadening the scope of a growing and energetic Department of Environmental Studies and Sciences by enhancing the social science and humanities curriculum within the department; have strong interests and/or experience in integrative and experiential education; and be expected to teach in the college's new integrative core curriculum, as well as introductory and upper-level required or elective courses in environmental studies/science.
Qualifications: Ph.D. preferred, advanced ABD considered. Preference will be given to candidates with interdisciplinary training and teaching experience, and whose contributions to the department would complement those of the core faculty as we help our students become designers of a sustainable future. More generally, we are looking for a colleague who will bring interdisciplinary training and experience to our growing program.
Review of applications will begin immediately. To ensure full consideration, complete applications should be received by October 15, 2013.
Ithaca College is committed to building a diverse academic community and encourages members of underrepresented groups to apply. Experience that contributes to the diversity of the college is appreciated.
