Chatham University seeks candidates for multiple faculty positions in the newly formed School of Sustainability and the Environment (SSE). For the new Masters in Food Studies program, we are seeking a full time faculty member in Sustainable Agriculture and Education. The ideal candidate would be able to teach courses in organic and sustainable agricultural techniques, help develop research projects with graduate students in urban and rural sites, and assist in the development of a Certificate in Sustainable Agriculture to compliment the basic Food Studies curriculum in Sustainable Culinary Practice, Food Systems, Food Access, Markets, Politics, and Communication.
We are seeking individuals who will join with the founding Dean to establish the identity of the new school, which will include building a campus and establishing interdisciplinary sustainability curricula. Ideal candidates will have compelling academic records of publication, teaching, outreach, and funded research. Candidates are expected to have or be close to having a Ph.D. or other appropriate terminal degree; we welcome applicants with diverse disciplinary or interdisciplinary academic training. Nominations are also welcome.
Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
The School of Sustainability and the Environment was established in 2010 with the goal of providing the necessary expertise in social justice, economic development, and environmental studies and sciences to support sustainable goals and practices from the individual to the global level. The SSE is currently based at Chatham University’s historic Shadyside Campus, and eventually will be housed at a new, carbon-neutral Eden Hall Campus, which is a historic 388-acre farm in Richland Township, PA.
Chatham University offers a competitive salary, an excellent benefits package, including tuition remission for qualified personnel, and a generous retirement plan.
Interested applicants should send a cover letter describing research, teaching, and other academic goals and interests, a CV, and names and contact information for three professional references to:
