Assistant Professor – Sustainability and Equity – Energy and Resources Group and the Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management

The Energy and Resources Group (ERG) and the Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management (ESPM) at the University of California, Berkeley, seek applications for a tenure track Assistant Professor faculty position in the area of Sustainability and Equity. The expected start date is July 1, 2020. The appointment will be split 50% in ERG and 50% in ESPM.

Social equity is foundational to solving critical environmental problems facing humanity at local, national and international scales; such challenges include climate change, food security and sovereignty, natural resource access, biodiversity loss, energy resources and production, water access and quality, land use and scarcity, and human health. We seek applications from scholars who foreground issues of equity in their environmental research and whose work pays attention to issues of power, access, voice and justice in shaping local, national, and/or international policies.

Applicants should also provide three letters of recommendation that speak to their excellence in research, teaching, mentoring, service, and record of contributions to diversity and inclusion. It is preferred that all letters of recommendation be uploaded by referees by the final date to apply (December 2, 2019). All letters will be treated as confidential per University of California policy and California state law. Please refer potential referees, including when letters are provided via a third party (i.e., dossier service or career center), to the UC Berkeley statement of confidentiality (http://apo.berkeley.edu/evalltr.html ) prior to submitting their letters.

The deadline for applications is December 2, 2019. Please direct questions to Megan Amaral, ergmanager@berkeley.edu.
