Open Level Faculty Position – Environmental Ethics
The Environmental Studies Program at the University of California, Santa Barbara invites applications for a tenured or tenure-track faculty position at the level of Assistant, Associate, or
Full Professor, with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2020. The Program is looking for individuals with particular emphasis in the area of Environmental Ethics.
The Program seeks candidates with backgrounds in philosophy or a related field in the social sciences or humanities. For this position, we define “ethics” broadly to include any of the three traditional areas of inquiry in this field —meta-, normative, or applied ethics. The Program is particularly interested in scholars who have both theoretical and applied interests, and whose work crosses disciplinary, methodological, cultural, or geographic boundaries. Possible focus areas include climate change, conservation, food and agriculture, risk and vulnerability, the role of science in society, decision-making, social inequality, law, and politics.
Established in 1970, the Environmental Studies Program at UC Santa Barbara is one of the oldest and largest programs of its kind, with more than 1,000 current majors and over 7,000 alumni. The program has a longstanding commitment to interdisciplinary research and teaching, and a
balance among the biophysical sciences, social sciences, humanities, and applied professions. UC Santa Barbara is a Hispanic Serving Institution, and more than 40 percent of our undergraduates are first-generation college students.
