The appointment will be half in Sociology and half in the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment. A variety of substantive interests in sociology will be considered, including but not limited to how history, politics, economics, geography, urban life, social movements, ideologies, social networks, culture, and inequality affect or result from environmental concerns and issues. Interest in interdisciplinary approaches and a commitment to collaborations across the natural and social sciences are both important. Candidates should have an active program of research in progress that may encompass a variety of methodological approaches, and for more senior candidates, a substantial record of publications in major journals and/or books from established publishers. A strong commitment to excellent teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels is essential.
Applicants should provide a cover letter including a brief statement of research and teaching interests, a curriculum vitae including list of publications, and samples of recent scholarship.
