The Environmental Studies Program and Department of Sociology at Tulane University invite applications for a tenure-track professorship at the rank of advanced assistant or associate professor with specialization in urban environmental sociology to begin July 2024.
Tulane’s Environmental Studies program is an interdisciplinary program based in the School of Liberal Arts with strengths in the social sciences and environmental humanities. We are in the process of building a vibrant and unique program that will bring together Environmental and Urban Studies, comprised of scholars who understand the relationships among cities (and non-cities), the environment, and climate change, and build on cross-school collaborations with Tulane’s School of Science and Engineering, School of Architecture, and School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to contribute to its creation and other initiatives to promote and advance environmental research, teaching, and community engagement on campus and beyond. The successful candidate will have a tenure home and 50% appointment in the Department of Sociology, which specializes in the interdisciplinary study of social inequalities by adopting rigorous qualitative and quantitative methods. Our location in New Orleans offers considerable opportunity for place-based research and experiential learning activities of this sort. The teaching load is 2-2, and the candidate will be expected to teach courses in Sociology and Environmental studies and mentor at both the undergraduate and graduate level.
