Visiting Assistant Professor of Environmental Policy
The Department of Environmental Studies at Amherst College invites applications for a visiting position at the assistant professor level in the area of environmental policy. This is a two-year position, beginning in July 2016, with the possibility of renewal for a third year. Within the last decade, Amherst College has profoundly transformed its student body in terms of socioeconomic status, ethnicity, and nationality, among other areas. Today, nearly one-quarter of Amherst’s students are Pell Grant recipients; 43 percent of our students are domestic students of color. Our expectation is that the successful candidate will excel at teaching and mentoring students who are broadly diverse with regard to race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender nationality, sexual orientation and religion.
The successful candidate will teach two courses per semester in his or her area of specialization (environmental policy, environmental law) and occasionally participate in a team-taught introductory course in environmental studies. Teaching in domestic and international policy is especially desired. A Ph.D. is required.
Candidates should submit electronically to http://apply.interfolio.com/32266 a cover letter, curriculum vitae, separate research and teaching statements, and three confidential letters of recommendation. Review of applications will begin on December 1, 2015, and will continue until the position has been filled.
