The Department of Education in the School of Education & Information Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles announces an open rank search for 3 faculty in the area of Environmental Justice. We aim to hire a cluster of faculty across all ranks, including assistant and associate professors, with a demonstrated record of research addressing the nexus of environmental justice and education. We are interested in a multidisciplinary, multi-methodological cluster of scholars who will engage with communities, schools, local, state, federal, and international policy makers, as well as colleagues across areas in and outside of the Department of Education.
Recognizing that Communities of Color have been disproportionately impacted by environmental racism and Indigenous communities have also been at the forefront of fighting environmental injustice, we seek faculty whose research and teaching center the experiences and perspectives of People of Color as they engage in environmental justice, broadly defined. We are particularly interested in scholars who are engaged in interdisciplinary lines of inquiry that account for socio-ecological relations, human and environment interactions, and histories of place in regard to environmental justice and who have experience creating programs that engage students, parents, and community partnerships.
