The newly established Schiller Institute for Integrated Science and Society at
Boston College is seeking Associate or Full Professor faculty members.

The Schiller Institute for Integrated Science and Society enhances multi-disciplinary, collaborative research and pedagogies that address critical societal issues in the areas of energy, health and the environment. As the start of a multi-year faculty hiring initiative, the Institute seeks four visionary scholars driven to lead synergistic scholarship efforts across academic disciplines in two broad areas: a) climate change science, mitigation and adaptation, and b) the energy transition.  Three faculty positions are grounded in the natural sciences; a fourth is grounded in the social sciences. Successful candidates will be appointed at the rank of Associate or Full Professor and will serve jointly as core Institute faculty members and as members of a home department.


The Institute stands at the crossroads of BC in a brand new integrated sciences building. Now in its nascent and dynamic growth phase, the Institute seeks faculty who will strengthen BC’s research profile; stimulate collaborative, problem-focused research; design and implement interdisciplinary curricula and co-curricular activities; partner with leading institutions and organizations; and advance the results of BC applied research into the public sphere.


Faculty experts in climate science; earth system modeling; societal determinants and
consequences of climate change; energy harvesting, conversion, and utilization, energy
storage, and improving energy efficiency; energy poverty and related areas will be
considered. Individuals and interdisciplinary research teams are invited to apply.
