Stanford University invites applications for one or more faculty appointments at the assistant, associate, or full professor level in the broad area of environmental behavioral sciences. The search is looking for candidates involved in the study of human behavior, human ecology, or human institutions as they pertain to sustainability, climate change, adaptation, or resilience. This search is part of a broader effort to build an environmental behavior sciences department in the new Stanford Doerr School of Sustainability (SDSS). Appointments from this search will be made in SDSS. Candidates must have a PhD, JD, or terminal degree in a field relevant to the search, an excellent record of scholarly work, a dedication to teaching, and a demonstrated commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
We seek interdisciplinary scholars from the broad set of social and behavioral sciences. Purely by way of example, this includes scholars from psychology, cognitive or decision science, geography, demography and population science, political science, anthropology, sociology, socioecological systems, law, and other related fields. We are also interested in scholars working on a broad set of topics. These topics include, but are not limited to, decision making in environmental contexts, political ecology, political economy, global institutions, adaptation, management of common-pool resources and cooperation, resilience, behavior change and cultural evolution, spatial and data science, and environmental justice. We are also interested in scholars studying environmental ethics, the connections between human health and the environment, and the use of computational social science to understand environmental sustainability.
Application packages should be submitted online at this link. Packages must include: (1) a curriculum vitae; (2) a research statement and statement of teaching interests (no more than 3 pages total for both); (3) a statement that demonstrates your commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion in your scholarship, teaching, and/or service, including how this commitment would continue in a career at Stanford (1 page); (4) name and contact information for three references; and (5) a cover letter.

Located between San Francisco and San Jose in the heart of Silicon Valley, Stanford University is recognized as one of the world's leading research and teaching institutions. Leland and Jane Stanford founded the University to "promote the public welfare by exercising an influence on behalf of humanity and civilization." Stanford opened its doors in 1891, and more than a century later, it remains dedicated to finding solutions to the great challenges of the day and to preparing students for leadership in a complex world. The University's thriving diverse community is comprised of nearly 7000 undergraduate students, 9000 graduate students, 2000 faculty members, 1900 postdoctoral scholars, and over 11,000 academic and administrative staff in seven schools including several interdisciplinary research centers and institutes. The campus spreads over 8000 contiguous acres and nearly all undergraduates live on campus. Stanford offers bachelor's and master's degrees in addition to doctoral degrees (PhD, MD, DMA and JD) plus a number of professional and continuing education programs and certifications.
