The College of Wooster invites applications for a tenure-track position in environmental studies, beginning August 2013. The environmental studies program at Wooster is a growing, multidisciplinary program with involvement from many departments across the academic divisions.
We are looking for people whose primary training is in the humanities or social sciences, but the demonstrated ability to take a multidisciplinary perspective is essential. Ability to take advantage of the College’s location and distinctive attributes, for example by focusing on sustainable agriculture, livable cities, or environmental justice, is a plus.
A typical yearly course schedule will include one or two sections of an introductory course; a gateway course in Environmental Analysis and Action; and one or two upper level courses in the applicant’s area of specialization. Participation in the college’s First-Year Seminar program, and supervision of undergraduate research in our nationally-recognized Independent Study program, are also expected. Applicants should have a PhD by the time of their appointment; postdoctoral research and/or teaching experience preferred.
Send curriculum vitae, statements of research and teaching philosophy, transcripts, and three letters of recommendation to Dr. S. Clayton, Chair of Environmental Studies Program, The College of Wooster, Wooster, OH 44691. Electronic applications are preferred. We will begin reviewing applications on November 1, 2012.
