Professor of Environmental Politics and Policy Principal Duties

Purdue University's Department of Political Science is seeking an environmental politics and policy scholar for an academic year appointment at the full professor level. Advanced associate professors with records commensurate with the rank of full professor are eligible to apply.

The successful candidate will develop and/or lead a nationally recognized research program in environmental policy. The person holding this position is expected to maintain an active research agenda that aligns well with extramural funding sources. In addition, the person holding this position will create and disseminate relevant knowledge through student instruction, and through engagement with external audiences. A high level of commitment to PhD student mentoring and a culture of diversity and inclusion is expected.

Qualifications

The candidate must have a Ph.D. in political science, public policy, or related field. This position requires strong communication skills, a proven ability to publish high-quality peer-reviewed research, and a record suitable for appointment as a full professor at Purdue (though the applicant need not already hold the rank of Full Professor at their present institution). Preference will be given to candidates who can contribute expertise to the Advanced Methods at Purdue program through research that utilizes cutting-edge social science research methods.

The College and University

This position is one of seven hires this year in the Department of Political Science. The College of Liberal Arts at Purdue University is embarking upon 40 faculty searches for positions to begin in Fall 2022. These positions will advance research within and across disciplines, and intersect with technology, data science, and engineering in relevant and important ways. These positions include teaching in our innovative, nationally-recognized Cornerstone Integrated Liberal Arts Program that educates students across the university.

Purdue is a research-intensive, PhD-granting institution and a public land- grant university. Political Science faculty members are actively involved with many interdisciplinary programs and centers on campus, including the Ecological Sciences and Engineering program, Purdue Climate Change Research Center, the Building Sustainable Communities initiative, the Center for the Environment, the Center for Research on Diversity and Inclusion, the Human Rights Program, the Purdue Systems Collaboratory, and the Purdue Policy Research Institute. In addition to the major and the PhD, the Department is home to graduate and undergraduate certificates and minors in environmental politics and policy, public policy, and human rights.
