As part of a multi-year plan to hire six tenure-track faculty, the newly formed Department of Environment and Sustainability at the University at Buffalo seeks to hire three Assistant or Associate Professors for the 2020-2021 academic year.
In this round of hiring, we seek scholars with expertise in the economic, social, political, cultural, historical, psychological, and ecological aspects of environmental and sustainability issues. We are especially interested in scholars who study the macro structures that affect the sustainability of societies; the forces that shape the way individuals think and act; and the processes controlling coupled natural-human systems. Western New York represents a living laboratory to study issues and processes over a gradient that includes rural, suburban and urban environments as well as two of the Great Lakes. The department already is broadly based, with faculty ranging from the ecological and environmental sciences to the humanities, and offers undergraduate and graduate degrees including Sustainability Leadership, Environmental Geosciences, Environmental Studies, and Evolution, Ecology and Behavior. Our hires in the next few years will strengthen our ability to solve critical societal and environmental problems and grow degree programs in these important areas.
Standard duties for academic-year (10-month) faculty include teaching undergraduate and graduate courses and seminars, advising and mentoring students, maintaining a strong research program, and providing service to the Department and University. More information about the department can be found at https://arts-sciences.buffalo.edu/environment-sustainability.html
University at Buffalo is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer and, in keeping with our commitment, welcomes all to apply including veterans and individuals with disabilities.
