Assistant Professor in Environmental Studies

They are interested in innovative, interdisciplinary scholars whose research is in one of the following areas: 1. Urban Ecology; 2. Animal Welfare Science and Environmental Conservation. The positions will be housed entirely within the Department of Environmental Studies, but are part of a broader cluster of recruitment efforts in Transforming Ecologies in Urban Environments that spans the departments of Environmental Studies and Biology in this year's searches and may expand to other departments. A primary aim of the cluster is to create a network for scholars working in these areas to collaborate across NYU. More information about this cluster and the broader cluster initiative can be found here and here.

The successful applicants will be interdisciplinary scholars with an excellent record of research and publishing who are ready to contribute to the education of undergraduates majoring in Environmental Studies and, eventually, graduate students pursuing a PhD in Environmental Studies. Applicants, especially for the Animal Welfare Science and Environmental Conservation position, will also be expected to teach and advise students in the department’s Animal Studies masters program and undergraduate minor. We are particularly interested in scholars whose research will advance the mission of the Department’s Center for Environmental and Animal Protection. We welcome candidates from a broad range of social science, physical science, and policy backgrounds (e.g., environmental studies, earth science, urban studies, ecology, political science, sociology, economics, public policy, geography).
