The School of Human Evolution and Social Change (SHESC) at Arizona State University (ASU) invites applications to join our world-leading and problem-focused social science faculty as a full-time, tenure-track Assistant Professor in Environmental Social Science (ESS). The ESS program lays the theoretical and methodological foundations for training next-generation scholars in trans-disciplinary processes and dynamics that underlie the key human-environmental challenges defining this century. ASU and SHESC are committed to building an intellectually, culturally, and ethnically diverse faculty that supports our diverse student body and advances the goals embodied in ASU’s Charter and Design Aspirations.
We seek applicants with a demonstrated capacity for advancing innovative, important scholarship on human-environment or human-infrastructure relationships, such as: place making or attachment, environmental psychology, political ecology, environmental justice, power relations/dynamics, social movements and collective action, institutions, multi-level or earth system governance, knowledge co-production, or decision-making under conditions of social-ecological uncertainty and complexity. Anticipated start date is August 2020.
Specific job duties include advancing collaborative, trans-disciplinary research in environmental social science, publishing research findings in peer-reviewed scholarly outlets, seeking external research funding, teaching/training/mentoring diverse undergraduate and graduate students, providing service to the university and academy, and outreach to diverse communities (such as providing expert advice and the public communication of science).
The application deadline is November 17, 2019; if not filled, then every two weeks thereafter until the search is closed.
