Stanford University invites applications for one or more tenured faculty appointments at the associate professor or full professor level in the broad area of Sustainable Development and Environmental Justice. The focus of the search is on risks from global environmental change to people and the planet, including adapting to, planning for, and reducing such risks, and in understanding how risks and impacts differ across populations. We are searching for creative and innovative scholars with an established record of high-impact research and a commitment to building a strong research, education, and impact community around the topics of sustainable development and environmental justice. We invite candidates from a broad range of social science disciplines to apply.

This cluster hire is part of a broader effort by Stanford University to build a new School focused on climate & sustainability (https://sustainabilityinitiative.stanford.edu/), which is expected to receive an official name early in 2022. Appointments from this search will be made in the School, and the School will begin operating in the 2022-2023 academic year.

Candidates must have a PhD in a field relevant to sustainable development and/or environmental justice, an excellent record of scholarly work, a dedication to teaching, and a demonstrated commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Application packages should be submitted online at http://Facultypositions.stanford.edu/cw/en-us/job/493389?lApplicationSubSou… and include the following documents: 1) a curriculum vitae; 2) a research statement (up to 3 pages); 3) a diversity statement that demonstrates the applicant’s commitment and potential to contribute to Stanford’s goals of diversity, equity, and inclusion through personal experience or perspective, scholarship, teaching, or service (1 page); 4) a statement of teaching interests (1 page); and 5) a cover letter that includes the names of three referees who can be contacted for letters. Review of applications will begin upon receipt and continue until the position is filled. All are welcome to apply.

Stanford’s new School focused on climate & sustainability deeply appreciates the value of a diverse, equitable, and inclusive community, and defines diversity broadly to include (among other things) diversity of genders, races and ethnicities, cultures, physical and learning differences, sexual orientations and identities, veteran status, and work and life experiences. Stanford is an equal employment opportunity and affirmative action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. Stanford welcomes applications from all who would bring additional dimensions to the University’s research, teaching and clinical missions.
