The School for Environment and Sustainability (SEAS) at the University of Michigan is seeking applicants for a full-time, nine-month, tenure-track Assistant/Associate Professor in Sustainable Systems. We seek a scholar with demonstrated excellence in research and teaching in the sustainable systems field. Areas of interest include but are not limited to circular economy, corporate social responsibility, energy and climate economics, food/water/energy nexus, green buildings, resilient and sustainable infrastructure, risk assessment, sustainable mobility, sustainable supply chains, system dynamics and complex systems.

SEAS’ mission is to contribute to the protection of the Earth’s resources and the achievement of a sustainable and just society.  The school contributes new scientific knowledge, visionary leadership, and trained professionals toward that end.  The faculty of the school are diverse, with natural scientists, social scientists, engineers, and designers working collaboratively in an integrative setting.  A professional school set within a major research university, SEAS provides a model of interdisciplinary and applied research and a focal point of research, teaching and societal engagement on sustainability. Recently renamed with an expanded mission, the school hired six new faculty during 2018. The school focuses on key crosscutting sustainability themes, including climate and energy; water; food systems; conservation and restoration; and cities, mobility, and built environment.  There are many opportunities for research collaborations through other university institutes such as the Center for Sustainable Systems, Erb Institute for Global Sustainable Enterprise, Michigan Energy Institute, MCity, and the Graham Sustainability Institute.

The position will be filled at the assistant or associate professor (tenure-track) level.

Review of applications will begin on December 1, 2019 and continue until the position is filled.  SEAS hopes to appoint a faculty member to this position to begin September 1, 2020.
