Assistant Professor (tenure-track) of Environmental Studies and Public Policy (David and Jane Flowerree Professorship)

New Orleans, LA
Open Date:
Jul 18, 2021
Close Date:
Sep 30, 2021

The Department of Political Science and the Environmental Studies Program at Tulane University invite applications for a full-time, tenure-track appointment at the rank of assistant professor to serve as the inaugural David and Jane Flowerree Professor in Environmental Studies and Public Policy. The successful candidate will do research on environmental politics, public policy related to the environment, and science-based public policy; we are open to candidates from diverse methodological traditions. This position will be jointly appointed in the Department of Political Science and the Program in Environmental Studies, with a tenure home in Political Science and teaching and service evenly divided between the two units: two courses per year in the Environmental Studies core curriculum and two courses in Political Science, with the possibility of cross-listing courses across the two units. Environmental Studies is one of the fastest growing majors at Tulane and a program in which the School of Liberal Arts is investing substantially via joint hires and programs. More broadly, the university has strengths in environmental studies across several schools including Architecture, Law, Public Health, and Science and Engineering, as well as the interdisciplinary ByWater Institute. The holders of the two Flowerree Professorships (the other based in the Department of River-Coastal Science and Engineering) will have dedicated funds to invite speakers and organize symposia.

The start date for this position is July 1, 2022.  For further questions about the position, contact search chair Prof. Brian Brox, [email protected]


Qualifications: PhD in Political Science, Public Policy, or Environmental Studies preferred. Ph.D required by time of appointment.

Application Instructions:

Please submit a letter of application, CV, statement of research, teaching portfolio or other evidence of teaching effectiveness, writing sample, and 3 letters of recommendation by October 1, 2021 to Interfolio:
