The Environmental Studies Program (ENVS) at Dartmouth College is looking for a postdoctoral fellow. ENVS is a diverse community of scholars who conduct innovative research within and across the natural and environmental social sciences (http://envs.dartmouth.edu). Faculty within ENVS are members of the novel interdisciplinary EEES PhD Program (https://sites.dartmouth.edu/EEES/). The fellow will have the opportunity to engage with EEES community, a highly interactive group of faculty, graduate students, and post-docs.
The fellow will continue their own independent research agenda, as well as explore new research projects in collaboration with ENVS faculty and students. The fellow will also participate in the ENVS Foreign Study Program in Southern Africa (http://envs.dartmouth.edu/foreign-study) which combines social and ecological science to study the themes of conservation and rural development. Students on this program visit a variety of rural sites across Southern Africa, working with local partners on applied research projects. Through their involvement, the fellow will spend 10 weeks in Southern Africa conducting collaborative research with faculty, graduate and undergraduate students.
The successful candidate will:
- Possess a PhD in an appropriate disciplinary or interdisciplinary field (e.g. environmental social sciences, sustainability science, conservation biology)
- Have an existing research interest complementary to the themes of the ENVS foreign study program
- Have a desire to combine teaching and research in field-based settings
- Have an interest in undergraduate and graduate level education
- Be a strong contributing member of the vibrant ENVS/EEES communities and foster productive discourse both within and beyond the programs.
