Tenure-track Assistant Professor in Environmental Humanities

The Saxo Institute, Faculty of Humanities, Copenhagen University (UCPH), Denmark, invites applicants for one or more tenure-track assistant professorships in Environmental Humanities to be filled by the 1st of September 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter.

Position description
The Saxo Institute seeks an outstanding researcher to fill a position in Environmental Humanities at assistant professorial level, to be based at the Institute’s soon-to-be-established Centre for Sustainable Futures. We seek a strong candidate with a dynamic international profile in the field of either history or ethnology (or related disciplines), who can document an impressive track record of humanities research on questions relating to the environment, climate or sustainability. The successful applicant will present an original and compelling research plan for the six-year tenure-track period, and will be expected to play an active role in developing the Centre for Sustainable Futures. Documented experience in cultivating international research networks, involvement in collaborative research initiatives, and developing grant applications would therefore be a distinct advantage. The assistant professorship will also be connected to the Institute’s undergraduate and graduate degree programs in either history or ethnology/applied cultural analysis. It is therefore a requirement that the successful applicant is qualified to teach in one or more of these disciplines, as well as contribute to cross-disciplinary teaching initiatives under the auspices of the Centre for Sustainable Futures.

Applications close 1 March 2021
