The School of Environmental Sustainability at Loyola University Chicago seeks qualified candidates for a 9-month, tenure-track Assistant Professor position in environmental policy. Preference will be given to candidates who specialize in policy as it relates to the intersection of social equity and environmental sustainability, particularly in the areas of our research affinity groups: climate change, water, environmental health, food systems, and/or biodiversity. The SES seeks to diversify its faculty and encourages underrepresented minorities, women, and people with disabilities to apply. This position builds on the School’s interdisciplinary strengths in addressing society’s vexing environmental challenges through research, teaching, and service.
The successful candidate will demonstrate a strong record of, or potential for, scholarly research and teaching excellence at both the undergraduate and graduate level; a willingness to work collaboratively with faculty in other disciplines; and demonstrated ability to serve students from diverse backgrounds. Applicants must hold an earned doctorate in environmental policy, public policy, political science, environmental studies, public administration, environmental law, or an affiliated field at the time of appointment. We welcome applicants who possess relevant professional experience and can support students in building their professional networks within environmental policy. The candidate must share Loyola University Chicago’s Jesuit commitment to social justice, care for our common home, and walking with the excluded, ideally evidenced through their research, teaching and/or service. Candidates for the position should have a record of or clear potential for distinguished scholarship, external research funding, and student mentorship.
