Northeastern University’s College of Social Sciences and Humanities seeks to fill an open-rank tenure line position as Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Full Professor at the intersection of biodiversity and society, with the possibility of a joint appointment in the College of Science. We seek candidates whose research and teaching focuses on the intersection of social structures and systems and biological conservation (or, inversely, extinction). Successful candidates will have demonstrated expertise in the social dimensions of biological conservation, a robust research agenda with a solutions-oriented focus, a commitment to education innovation, and a commitment to interdisciplinary collaboration. Academic rank at the Associate Professor and Full Professor levels will be commensurate with experience and qualifications reflecting a record of demonstrated teaching and scholarly excellence.
We welcome applicants from sociology, science and technology studies, conservation social science, philosophy, Indigenous studies, planning, policy, sustainability science, environmental social science, environmental communication, social-ecological systems, or related fields. We invite scholars from a broad and diverse set of backgrounds, including those who employ a range of methodologies. Candidates should have demonstrated commitment to fostering diverse and inclusive environments as well as to promoting experiential learning, which are central to a Northeastern University education.
Review of applications will begin on November 15, 2023 and will continue until the position is filled.
