STANFORD UNIVERSITY invites applications
for a tenure-track or tenured position for a sociologist with an
interest in environmental issues. The appointment will be half in
Sociology and half in the Stanford Woods Institute for the
Environment. A variety of substantive interests in sociology will
be considered, including but not limited to how history, politics,
economics, geography, urban life, social movements, ideologies,
social networks, culture, and inequality affect or result from
environmental concerns and issues. Interest in
interdisciplinary approaches and a commitment to collaborations
across the natural and social sciences are both important.
Candidates should have an active program of research in progress
that may encompass a variety of methodological approaches, and for
more senior candidates, a substantial record of publications in
major journals and/or books from established publishers. A strong
commitment to excellent teaching at the undergraduate and graduate
levels is essential.
Applicants should provide a cover letter including a brief
statement of research and teaching interests, a curriculum
vitae including list of publications, and samples of recent
scholarship. Applicants for a non-tenured position should arrange
to have three letters of reference submitted to Academic Jobs
Online by the letter writers.
For full consideration, materials should be received by
September 15, 2017.
