Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies (2023)
The Environmental Studies Program at Washington and Lee University invites applications for tenure track Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies. We seek candidates with a background in environmental ethics with a focus on environmental justice and inequality. We are particularly interested in candidates whose work addresses normative and applied ethics in areas such as health disparities, environmental racism, or the impact of technology or extractivism on inequalities and social justice. The teaching load will include core courses in Environmental Studies and elective courses in their area of expertise. Core course responsibilities include Introduction to Environmental Studies, Environmental Humanities, and the senior capstone experience. Elective courses will be cross-listed in the Philosophy Department and may contribute to the Shepherd Program in Poverty and Human Capability Studies as appropriate. The ideal candidate will be a collaborative, dynamic, creative teacher-scholar committed to high-quality undergraduate education and supporting student research.
To achieve our mission as a liberal arts college, the Environmental Studies Program strives to foster an inclusive campus and to advance diverse perspectives within the program and its curriculum. We are committed to preparing our students for engaged environmental citizenship by creating an educational community that is rich with cultural, social, and intellectual diversity. In keeping with the University Strategic Plan, we welcome applications from underrepresented minority candidates and members of other communities that are traditionally underrepresented in academia.
Washington and Lee is a top-ranked, private institution in Lexington, Virginia where we integrate the rigorous inquiry and critical thinking of a liberal arts curriculum with nationally accredited undergraduate programs in business and journalism, and a graduate School of Law. Our graduates, mentored by a faculty of teacher-scholars, are ready to make a meaningful impact wherever they go in the world. Our historic campus, situated in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley, is home to a vibrant, welcoming community.
We respectfully acknowledge that Washington and Lee University exists on the homelands of the Yesa and their descendants, among them the Monacan people.
A PhD is required by the time of appointment with relevant graduate coursework, and teaching experience is highly desirable.
