Professor of Sustainability
Professor or Assistant Professor
The Hertie School is recruiting a Professor or Assistant Professor of Sustainability, with a research agenda in environmental as well as economic and/or social sustainability.
Relevant research areas in environmental sustainability may include (among others) biodiversity, cities and transport, pollution, agriculture and/or land use and water. An ideal candidate combines this with a research agenda in economic and/or social sustainability, which may include (among others) human well-being, inequality and poverty, inter-generational justice, environmental accounting, sustainable economic growth, environmental taxation, large-scale risk, long-term policy design, and/or evolution of norms.
The candidate will contribute to the development of the new Hertie Centre for Sustainability and will interact with faculty members with expertise in climate change and energy. Applicants should be interested in working in an interdisciplinary environment.
Applicants for this position must have a doctoral degree relevant for the position, or expect to have this degree by the start of employment. We are looking for a candidate with a background in economics, though this does not have to be a PhD. An early career candidate will be appointed as tenure-track Assistant Professor with a six-year clock (two three-year contracts). A more advanced candidate would initially be on a fixed contract of negotiable length prior to a tenure review. In highly exceptional circumstances, a particularly outstanding candidate may be appointed with tenure.
The expected start date is 1 September 2020.
The Hertie School seeks faculty with demonstrated capacity for research, teaching, and outreach at the highest levels in their discipline. We recruit faculty who will create a climate that embraces excellence and diversity with a commitment to teaching and innovative research of interest to the international scholarly community and policy-makers.
Candidates are expected to work well in an interdisciplinary, international environment with English as the language of instruction and operation. The successful candidate will teach courses in the School‘s Master, Executive, and PhD programmes and be able to collaborate with new centres of competence which will be set up over the next years. Those are the Jacques Delors Institute Berlin – Centre for European Affairs, the Centre for International Security Policy, the Centre on Fundamental Rights, the Centre for Sustainability, the Centre on Digital Governance, and the Hertie School Data Science Lab. The successful candidate is expected to actively contribute to the research and outreach activities of the Centre for Sustainability.
As a private university, the Hertie School offers an internationally competitive salary as well as a paid sabbatical after every five semesters. We provide excellent working conditions with outstanding financial and administrative support for research. The Hertie School is fully embedded in Germany‘s vibrant research landscape and has close ties to the top institutions of the European and international teaching and research community as well as to the policy world.
The Hertie School is a diverse, international and lively community located in the heart of Berlin. It takes a family friendly workplace seriously.
The deadline for the submission of applications is 30 November 2019. The Hertie School will review applications that include a letter of motivation, a current curriculum vitae (publication list, degrees earned, if applicable: positions held, teaching experience, research projects, awards received), two writing samples and, if applicable, teaching evaluations. Early career candidates should include three letters of recommendation from professors familiar with their work.
