With this commitment as well as a commitment to addressing all forms of academic misconduct, UC Irvine conducts institutional reference checks for candidates finalists to whom the department or other hiring unit would like to extend a formal offer of appointment into Ladder Rank Professor or Professor of Teaching series, at all ranks (i.e., assistant, associate, and full). The institutional reference checks involve contacting the administration of the applicant’s previous institution(s) to ask whether there have been substantiated findings of misconduct that would violate the University’s Faculty Code of Conduct. To implement this process, UC Irvine requires all candidates of Ladder Rank Professor or Professor of Teaching series, at all ranks (i.e., assistant, associate, and full) to complete, sign, and upload the form entitled “Authorization to Release Information” into AP RECRUIT as part of their application. If the candidate does not include the signed authorization to release information with the application materials, the application will be considered incomplete.

Description:
Mount Holyoke College invites applications for a tenure-track position in environmental and social equity and justice to begin Fall 2022. The search is open to candidates working in any discipline or area of environmental and social equity and justice. We are particularly interested in candidates with an emphasis on humanistic perspectives. Areas of specialty are open but could include: environmental art, history, or literature; ecocriticism; ethics; religion and ecology; queer ecologies and ecofeminism; post-colonial environmentalism and indigenous studies; climate or health justice; just sustainabilities or futures; or other areas. The successful candidate will have: a strong interest in cross-disciplinary teaching and research; a demonstrated commitment to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion and experience mentoring students who are broadly diverse with regard to race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, and religion; and a commitment to undergraduate, liberal-arts education. The hired applicant will be expected to employ interdisciplinary perspectives and approaches in teaching and in an active research program that ideally involves undergraduates. Teaching responsibilities will include participation in teaching introductory and capstone courses as well as development and teaching of intermediate and advanced courses in the field. A Ph.D. is required (we will consider A.B.D. candidates also), and post-doctoral research, teaching, or mentoring experience is helpful. Teaching load is 2/2; salary is competitive.

Although the position will initially be housed in the Department of Environmental Studies, it will soon be in a new Department of Earth, Environment, and Sustainability (EES), and is supported in part by generous funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The EES curriculum will offer students a foundation for understanding Earth’s natural systems and their interactions with political, economic, social, cultural, and historical factors from global to local scales. The new EES Department will result from a planned merger of the Department of Environmental Studies with the Department of Geology and Geography. The successful candidate will participate in building this new interdisciplinary major and curriculum.

Please submit here a letter of application, a C.V., and statements covering (1) research interests, (2) teaching philosophy, (3) the mentoring of a diverse student body.

Review of applications will begin on Friday October 1, 2021 and continue until the position is filled.
