Faculty Position in Environment, Climate Change and Peace

 

The University of Notre Dame’s Keough School of Global Affairs invites applications for a tenured/tenure-track position in climate change, environment and peace studies, based at the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies. Rank is open though preference would be given to junior and mid-career candidates. The disciplinary and regional specialization for the position is open. While the primary appointment is at the Keough School, the successful candidate could also have an affiliation with another School or College at the University of Notre Dame.

We welcome candidates working on one or more of the following themes:

  • conflict resolution as it relates to the environment, natural resources and climate change
  • environmental justice and social transformation
  • violence induced by climate change and environmental degradation

The successful applicant is expected to play a leading role in the Kroc Institute’s plans for developing a research and teaching focus on climate change and environment as they relate to conflict and peace. They would be part of a growing community of scholars within the Keough School working on environmental policy in a global context. We encourage applications from scholars who can engage in interdisciplinary research and teaching, thereby contributing to the integrative mission of the Keough School. We particularly welcome scholars whose research has direct relevance to the peacebuilding practice and policy.

All applicants are required to submit a letter of interest and a CV. Junior candidates should also arrange for the submission of three letters of reference, a statement of research, and a teaching statement, which includes a summary of any teaching evaluations available. 

Nominations and inquiries may be sent via email to:

Prof. Asher Kaufman
Chair, Environment, Climate Change and Peace Search Committee
