Work type: Faculty Full-Time
Location: Denver, CO
Application Deadline: September 23, 2022
The Josef Korbel School of International Studies of the University of Denver seeks to hire an assistant professor, tenure-track, in the fields of ecological, environmental, or natural resource policy and/or economics. The position will commence in September 2023.
The successful candidate for this position will function effectively as a scholar and teacher in an interdisciplinary school and will complement the expertise of the existing faculty who specialize in environmental issues. The subfield is open, but we will give special consideration to scholars who focus on the economic features or societal consequences of climate change, the efficacy of market-related policy instruments, and the design and execution of policy in the context of complex systems and deep uncertainty. Possible topics include but are not limited to climate tax and regulatory policy, corporate environmental and social governance, climate justice and sustainable economic development, climate and economic inequality, and stakeholder participation in policy design, enactment, and assessment.
The faculty member in this position will be prepared to introduce and teach core courses in the Korbel School’s MA in Global Environmental Sustainability, which also enrolls students from other Korbel graduate programs, and in the Korbel School’s undergraduate programs. Through research and outreach the person in this position will contribute to the growth of the School’s Sustainability Initiative and to the School’s commitment to engaged scholarship.
