Purdue University Visiting Scholar of Sustainability (2013-2014)

Purdue University seeks a faculty member at any rank interested in working on issues of sustainability with the faculty in its Center for the Environment (C4E) and the students in its Honors College during one or two semesters of the 2013-2014 academic year.

The appointment will provide substantial time for development of faculty research related to sustainability issues, ideally in partnership with faculty in the Center for the Environment.  The scholar will also be expected to teach one honors seminar on a sustainability topic as part of his or her time in residence, and must have an interest in teaching and mentoring undergraduate honors students.  The ideal candidate will also be able to take part in the larger first year interdisciplinary honors seminar, which will focus on sustainability and culminate in a large service-learning project in the spring 2014 semester.

The chosen candidate will be appointed as a Visiting Scholar to the Center for the Environment and Faculty-in-Residence for the Honors College. The appointment includes fully subsidized housing in Purdue’s historic Windsor Hall.  The faculty suite is a new 2-bedroom apartment suitable for a single scholar or a small family (2 BR/2 BA; W/D; LV; kitchen), immediately adjacent to state-of-the-art athletic facilities and to academic campus.

Partial salary support is also available for the honors teaching effort.
