Position Description

The Institute at Brown for Environment and Society (IBES) invites applications for two new career-track Lecturer positions. IBES faculty have training across a wide variety of disciplines, including History, Economics, Sociology, Ecology, Earth Sciences, Anthropology and others. The Lecturer positions are open to any discipline or area of specialization that applies a disciplinary perspective to understanding environmental challenges. Key examples of disciplines and areas of specialization include Agriculture, Geography, Environmental Law and Policy, Geospatial Information Technologies, Marine Science, and Environment and Inequality (Environmental Justice, Political Ecology, etc.). We are particularly interested in candidates with demonstrated excellence in teaching.

Lecturers at Brown are members of the regular faculty, have voting privileges, competitive salaries, full benefits, a career progression ladder, and an academic leave policy that is analogous to sabbatical. Lecturers within IBES are expected to teach 4 courses per year, and contribute to student advising and university service. While the principal criteria for evaluation of performance is based on teaching excellence, Lecturers are also expected to make other professional contributions, e.g., through the development of advanced pedagogical approaches, community service or research.
