The Environmental Policy and Culture Program and the Alice Kaplan Humanities Institute invite applications for a two-year post-doctoral fellowship in the Environmental Humanities, to run from September 1, 2014 through August 31, 2016. Applications are welcome from scholars who study the environment from a humanities perspective (analyzing, for instance, environmental history; ecological interface and the built environment; ecological/ecocritical approaches to literature; animal studies, green studies, or cultural approaches to water and air; environmental justice and/or ethics and sustainability). The Fellow’s appointment may span the Environmental Policy and Culture Program, the Kaplan Humanities Institute and a department in Northwestern’s Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences. We are particularly interested in candidates whose work falls within one or more of the following fields: Art History, Art Theory and Practice, English, Ethnic Studies, History, Literary Studies, Philosophy, or Religious Studies. The Fellow must be prepared to teach courses that reflect expertise both in studies of the environment and in another substantive field. Candidates must complete all Ph.D. requirements before September 1, 2014.


The fellow will pursue a program of independent scholarship under the guidance of a faculty mentor and will teach two undergraduate courses each year. The fellow will also give one public lecture per year. This position is a two-year, full-time fellowship with benefits.


Applicants should submit a curriculum vita, research statement for the proposed project, writing sample of 35-50 pages, and a sample syllabus for one upper-division undergraduate course. Graduate school transcripts as well as three letters of recommendations (including one letter from the dissertation advisor) should be forwarded as part of the application. In order to ensure full consideration, all application materials must be received by December 15, 2013.
