Cornell University invite applicants for a joint
tenure-track position for scholars working at the intersection of

professor. We seek a candidate whose research and teaching focuses
on some configuration of the following areas of inquiry: cultural
geography, social and political theory, environmental inequality,
eco-feminism and queer ecologies, biotechnology, bioethics,
environmental sustainability (broadly and creatively defined)
and/or histories of science. We are seeking interdisciplinary
scholars whose work highlights methodologies and themes associated
with environmental humanities with a focus on race, gender,
sexuality and/or inequality as categories of analysis in the
African diaspora.
The position is open to all humanities and qualitative social
science disciplines. The Department and Program will work closely
together to ensure that the 2/2 teaching load and committee,
administrative and service responsibilities will be shared between
ASRC and FGSS, with the successful candidate teaching foundational,
undergraduate and graduate courses. The tenure home will be in
ASRC. The successful candidate is expected to contribute to the
core mission and institutional developments of both ASRC &
FGSS. Candidates should submit a cover letter, a statement of
current and future research plans, a statement about teaching
experience and philosophy, a curriculum vitae, a writing sample of
no more than 30 pages, and three letters of reference. The deadline
for applications is November 1, 2017 and

Developed as part of the provost's task force on Arts and
Humanities at Cornell and co-sponsored by the Critical Inquiry into

with the potential for developing new directions in humanities
teaching and research and is interested in joining an

years across the university, as well as already existing programs
such as the Society for the Humanities, the Atkinson Center for a
Sustainable Future, and the Center for Inequality Studies. For more
