The Faculty of Geosciences and the Environment (FGSE) of the University of Lausanne invites applications for a professorship in Environmental Humanities, to be based in the Institute of Geography and Sustainability (IGD).
We are looking for a candidate with solid training in social science and/or humanities, displaying a proven record in fundamental aspects of sustainability, and capable of developing a research and teaching program within the following set of issues : climate justice and ecological justice; planetary boundaries, the Anthropocene and degrowth; citizen engagement and sustainability, and the integration of sustainability concerns into democratic processes; the genealogy and future of environmental problems; the ideas of nature and critical approaches to modernity. A forward-looking and speculative dimension will be highly valued, as will a good integration of empirical and theoretical aspects.
The successful candidate will actively participate in the research activities of the Institute of Geography and Sustainability, will teach in the Bachelor of Geosciences and Environment and in relevant Masters taught by the FGSE, and will supervise masters and doctoral students.
Appointment will be at the Assistant Professor level (tenure track). However, exceptionally, we will consider outstanding candidates for direct appointment to the Associate or Ordinary Professor level, notably if this corresponds with our equal opportunity objectives.
