Repost from Crit Geog Forum via Brent Z. Kaup
Please see the announcement below for a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Environmental History/Geography at the College of William and Mary. While the call is for a position in environmental history, environmental geographers with a historical bend are more than welcome to apply. If you have any questions about the position, feel free to contact me.
Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Environmental History/Geography
The Environmental Science and Policy (ENSP) program at the College of William & Mary seeks applications for a two-year postdoctoral scholar position in Environmental History (any region, any period). The historical subfields are open, but the ideal candidate will be able to collaborate with faculty in the sciences and social sciences engaged in interdisciplinary research related to landscape change and disease. The postdoctoral scholar will also teach one upper-level seminar course per academic year, arrange an environmental speaker series in the second year, and participate in the College’s Environmental Humanities Working Group. A PhD in History, Environmental Geography, or a closely related discipline is required by the time of appointment, August 10, 2016.
The position offers a competitive salary, research and travel funds, and administrative support. The postdoctoral fellow will be mentored by two William & Mary faculties with teaching and research interests that intersect with Environmental History.
