Recruitment/Posting Title Assistant Professor in Environmental Sociology
Department SAS - Sociology
The Department of Sociology at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, seeks
applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level in
the area of Environmental Sociology (focusing on climate change, disasters,
or survival migration). The successful candidate will be responsible for
performing research and teaching graduate/undergraduate classes in Sociology.
This individual will be expected to strengthen one or more of our core
research clusters, including environment and sustainability, global
structures, race, ethnicity & immigration, politics and social movements, or
health, population, and biomedicine, and contribute to our diverse expertise
in qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methodologies. This individual will
also have an opportunity to collaborate across a broad group of partners on
and off-campus, including the Rutgers Energy Institute, the Rutgers Climate
Institute, and the Rutgers Disaster Response Initiative, and contribute to the
recently developed major in Environmental Studies in the School of Arts and
Sciences. Qualified candidates must have a Ph.D. in Sociology or a related
discipline pertinent to environmental sociology by start of appointment (on
September 1, 2022). We will start reviewing applications on October 15, 2021.
Applications received after that date cannot be assured full consideration.
Because New Jersey is one of the most ethnically diverse U.S. states, and
because we are its largest public university, we are especially interested in
candidates who, through their research, teaching, and/or service will
contribute to the diversity and excellence of our community.
