Bard College invites applications and nominations for a tenure-line, open rank position as Faculty Director of the Environmental and Urban Studies (EUS) program.
EUS stresses trans-disciplinary training and is dedicated to integrating approaches from the natural and social sciences. The director will provide strong and innovative academic leadership and a vision for EUS, infusing the college curriculum with community-based learning in the Hudson Valley, research, policy and action initiatives that integrate study of the natural and the built environments. He or she will teach two-thirds time and advise students. The successful candidate will hold a PhD in a relevant discipline (environmental or political science and urban studies/policy are particularly attractive) and have a distinguished record of research and teaching in environmental studies as well as experience with civic engagement, internship initiatives and fundraising. Affiliation with the Bard Graduate Center for Environmental Policy, the nearby Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies, the Bard Globalization and International Affairs program, the Rockefeller University laboratories, the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library, and the Bard New Orleans project extend the program’s reach and afford research and study opportunities for EUS majors.
To apply, please send cover letter, CV, writing sample (no more than 25 pp.), and names and contact information of three references in pdf format by e-mail on to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be reviewed as received. Bard College is an equal opportunity employer, and we welcome applications from those who contribute to our diversity. AA/EOE
