Associate or Full Tenure-Line Professor, Environmental Politics, Governance, and Policy

The Josef Korbel School seeks a scholar with a prominent research profile in the fields of environmental governance, political economy, or policy for an appointment at the associate or full professor rank, with tenure. The successful candidate will have a broad vision of environmental issues, will contribute to teaching in both our undergraduate and graduate programs, and will help lead our growing program in environmental sustainability. Through research and outreach the person in this position will contribute to the growth of the school’s Sustainability Initiative and to the school’s commitment to engaged scholarship. We are especially interested in scholars with research programs focused on the politics of climate policy at all levels of governance, interventions to enable societal adaptation to those impacts, and the societal impacts of climate change (e.g., on economic inequality, food insecurity, climate migration, or democracy).

Completed applications received by December 1, 2022, will be guaranteed full consideration. A complete application includes a cover letter, a CV, two writing samples, at least one course syllabus, and (three separate) statements on research, teaching, and how, as a faculty member, the applicant would contribute to values and practices embracing diversity, equity, and inclusivity. This last requirement, the diversity statement, should not exceed two single-spaced pages. (Letters of recommendation should not be submitted with the application, but please do include three potential referees whom we could contact at a later stage.) These materials are to be submitted through the University of Denver's online application system jobs.du.edu.
