• Postdoctoral Fellowship in Environmental Security

Colgate University.
Postdoctoral Fellowship in Environmental Security.

Colgate University’s Department of Geography seeks to appoint a one-year postdoctoral scholar in the field of Environmental Security to begin Fall semester 2013.
We encourage applications from candidates whose own expertise lies at the intersection of Ecology and Security Studies, and whose research focuses on the effects of environmental insecurity on vulnerable populations. Preference will be given to candidates holding a Ph.D. in Geography, but applications from candidates in relevant Social Science fields who are capable of linking environmental dimensions of geopolitics to threatened populations will also be considered. The Postdoctoral Scholar will teach three courses, share their research work with the community, and actively participate in and contribute to the life of the Geography Department. Applicants should have received their Ph.D. no earlier than 2011; persons holding tenure-track appointments are not eligible to apply. Ph.D. candidates must have degree in hand by the time of appointment. This position carries a competitive salary with full benefits and some research and/or travel support. Colgate’s Geography Department currently consists of ten full-time faculty. It is housed in the recently-constructed Robert H.N. Ho Interdisciplinary Science Center whose facilities include well equipped GIS and visualization labs, both with lab technician support. For additional information see the Geography Department web page (http://www.colgate.edu/academics/departments-and-programs/geography).
With 2800 students and more than 250 faculty, Colgate combines the intimacy of a leading liberal arts college with the breadth and depth of a research university. Developing and sustaining a diverse faculty, staff, and student body further the University’s educational mission.
Colgate University is an Equal Opportunity Affirmative Action Employer; women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
Please submit an application letter and supporting materials (CV, three recommendation letters, and sample of written work not to exceed 20 pages; cover letter should indicate what research or writing the candidate will be engaged in while at Colgate) as soon as possible to https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/2584.
Review of completed applications will begin April 15, 2013.
