|Institution Type:||College / University|
|Location:||New York, United States|
The Environmental Studies Program at Binghamton University, State University of New York invites applications for a tenure-track position at the level of assistant professor beginning in Fall 2022.
We seek an environmental justice scholar who conducts innovative research within a specific policy area. Our new colleague will examine the economic, legal, societal, or race-related drivers of environmental injustice within topics, such as, but not limited to, energy, air, food systems, urbanization, or water / land resource policy. Our new colleague will study the social and/or political science of their area of policy concentration, be well-versed in the physical or systems science underpinning the topic, and able to convey an interdisciplinary understanding to students. Such a melding of human and natural systems is at the crux of the Environmental Studies Program and a recruitment focus for faculty members. We seek applicants who prioritize engaged, collaborative, or community-based research with Indigenous, African-American, Latinx or other minoritized populations.
Teaching will include lower-level and upper-level environmental policy courses emphasizing local, state, and federal policy in the United States and incorporating environmental justice concepts. In addition, the faculty member will teach an upper-level specialty course that would contribute to our new sustainability systems undergraduate concentration and the Sustainable Communities master’s degree. Other courses might include one of our capstone classes or a research methods course. This person would serve as a mentor to master’s degree students working on a variety of projects.
Binghamton University emphasizes research across departments through its trans-disciplinary areas of expertise (TAEs) on campus. These TAEs bring together and support university researchers interested in conducting interdisciplinary projects in sustainable communities, smart energy, data science, health sciences, material and the visual world, and citizen, rights and belonging.
