Department of Environmental Studies

New York University Faculty of Arts and Science

The Department of Environmental Studies at New York University
invites applications for two tenure-track assistant
professor positions. The appointments will begin September
1, 2022, subject to administrative and budgetary approval.

We are interested in innovative, interdisciplinary scholars whose
research is in one of the following two areas: 1. Urban
Ecology; 2. Animal Welfare Science and
Environmental Conservation. The positions will be housed
entirely within the Department of Environmental Studies, but are
part of a broader cluster of recruitment efforts
in Transforming Ecologies in Urban
Environments that spans the departments
of Environmental Studies and Biology
this year's searches and may expand to other departments. A primary
aim of the cluster is to create a network for scholars working in
these areas to collaborate across NYU. More information about this
cluster and the broader cluster initiative can be
found here and here.

The successful applicants will be interdisciplinary scholars with
an excellent record of research and publishing who are ready to
contribute to the education of undergraduate and graduate students
in Environmental Studies. Applicants, especially for the Animal
Welfare Science and Environmental Conservation position, will also
be expected to teach and advise students in the department's

Animal Studies masters program and undergraduate minor. We
are particularly interested in scholars whose research will advance
the mission of the Department's Center for Environmental and Animal
Protection. We welcome candidates from a broad range of
social science, physical science, and policy backgrounds (e.g.,
environmental studies, earth science, urban studies, ecology,
political science, sociology, economics, public policy,
Candidates should possess a Ph.D. by August 31, 2022, have an
integrative research program that demonstrates the potential to be
a leader in the field of Environmental Studies, and have proven
ability to be an excellent teacher. Candidates should apply
with a cover letter, CV, three (3) confidential letters of
recommendation, two exemplary writing samples, a research
and teaching statement, and a diversity and inclusion
statement. The diversity and inclusion statement offers
applicants the opportunity to highlight their past, present, and
future contributions to creating inclusive excellence, which is a
cornerstone of the Faculty Cluster Initiative and a core commitment
of the Department of Environmental Studies and New York
University. Please send your completed application
by October 20th 2021. All materials
should be uploaded via Interfolio:
