Job vacancy: Assistant Professor, Politics and Environment, McGill University

Job vacancy of potential interest to scholars focusing on migration and environment:

The McGill School of Environment (MSE) and the Department of Political Science invite applications for a joint tenure-track position in Politics and Environment. Appointment is expected to be at the rank of Assistant Professor, but appointment at a higher rank may be possible under exceptional circumstances. Candidates should have already completed the PhD or be very near completion.

The Department and School welcome applications from qualified candidates working within any subfield in Environmental Politics. The search is open in terms of methodological specialization, although candidates are expected to be able to demonstrate expertise in either quantitative or qualitative methods, or both. While all applications will be given full consideration, we are particularly interested in scholars whose work incorporates some of the following elements: is transnational in scope or has the potential to move in this direction, addresses the consequences of environmental change for public policy at various institutional levels, examines the relationships between environmental change and other phenomena such as international migration or conflict. The School of Environment is highly interdisciplinary; the successful candidate will have demonstrated an excellent capacity to work in an interdisciplinary context and to develop interdisciplinary collaborations.

Review of applications will begin on October 28, 2016 and will continue until the position is filled.
