Position Summary
The Center for Environmental Futures (CEF) at the University of Oregon seeks to hire a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Environmental Humanities and allied fields with a scholarly focus in the Pacific Northwest region, including northern California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, British Columbia, and Alaska, beginning in Fall 2022. The University of Oregon has recently created the Just Futures Institute with funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The Just Futures Institute (JFI) seeks to foster deeper understandings of the connections between environmental justice, climate change, and racial justice in the Pacific Northwest. This postdoctoral position will help advance the mission of JFI.

Scholars working on any dimension of the Environmental Humanities and allied fields with a focus on the Pacific Northwest region will be considered. We especially welcome applicants who focus on Indigenous, Black, Latinx, Asian American, or Pacific Islander communities from any disciplinary perspective related to the Environmental Humanities and allied fields. We encourage those engaged in interdisciplinary approaches to climate and racial justice, including those who draw on the natural and social sciences, planning and policy, arts and design, and/or law. In addition to developing and disseminating their own scholarship, the postdoctoral scholar will be expected to make a public presentation, attend all of CEF’s monthly gatherings (“Interdisciplinarity 101”), and make a presentation at one of those gatherings.
