This position is to be held jointly at the Cogut Institute for the Humanities and the Department of Political Science, effective July 1, 2018. We are especially interested in scholarship that explores the processes and procedures of social and civic engagement that can address the issues of environmental impact on particular communities that have longstanding spiritual, residential, economic, or religious claims to land and water. Work in this area can be engaged from all the approaches common to contemporary political theory: normative, critical, genealogical, historical, feminist, activist, engaged, indigenous, and deliberative. The appointment would be open to any approach, with the department seeking to appoint the person who is best able to offer courses and inspire students to attend to this important area of research, while producing work of importance for publication. The successful candidate will teach two courses per year, one in each semester, in the Department of Political Science cross-listed in the Cogut Institute's Humanities course offerings. The fellow will also be affiliated with the Cogut Institute and is expected to participate in the weekly Tuesday seminars as well as other activities of the Institute.
Stipend of $61,500 with an increase to $63,907 the second year plus benefits and a research budget of $2,000 per year. Applications will be reviewed beginning January 15, 2018 and accepted until the position is filled.
