Professorship in International Environmental Policy

THE FLETCHER SCHOOL, TUFTS UNIVERSITY

The Fletcher School, established in 1933 as the first exclusively graduate school of international affairs in the United States, seeks to hire a full-time tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor of International Environmental Policy, beginning in September 2020.  The ideal candidate will have prior research, teaching, and practical experience.  Interest in and prior experience with engaging policymakers about the candidate’s area of expertise is highly desirable.

The Fletcher School’s faculty is multi-disciplinary with a focus on preparing tomorrow’s leaders with a global perspective. The School undertakes research and prepares masters and doctoral students to use the latest political, business, economic, and legal thinking, among others, to generate pragmatic policies or make executive decisions that will successfully shape global events. Tufts University is a world-renowned research university dedicated to the creation and application of knowledge.

International environmental policy is a flagship field at The Fletcher School.  The rapid growth of resource use and the acceleration of land conversion to feed and house an expanding population have created a new set of transboundary and global commons problems.  The program demonstrates how environment and resource issues are integral to the ongoing economic development process and are critical to the security of societies.  The program emphasizes the need to utilize multiple disciplinary tools from science, economics, politics, law and engineering in developing sustainable solutions.
