Environmental Studies Position in Energy Policy
St. Lawrence University seeks a qualified candidate for a one year visiting position in environmental studies at the assistant professor level. The successful candidate will be an individual broadly trained in environmental studies and whose specific academic interest is energy policy. This person will teach three courses per semester, which will include Introduction to Environmental Studies as well as a seminar in energy policy and/or a practicum in alternative energy. The environmental studies department also has an Ecological Sustainability Landscape located adjacent to campus with a house that can be used as a laboratory and that is, in part, powered by a 1.8 KW photovoltaic solar electric system tied into the local power grid. In addition to the course about energy, the candidate may also teach other upper level environmental studies seminars that compliment the broadly interdisciplinary program in place at St. Lawrence. Ph.D. is preferred; ABD will be considered. Review of applications begins 15 January 2005.
