Position description

The Bren School of Environmental Science & Management (www.bren.ucsb.edu) invites applications for an open-rank faculty position in corporate sustainability. The position is open rank and may be in the University of California’s Professor series or Teaching Professor in the UC’s Lecturer with Security of Employment (LSOE) series. Professors and Teaching Professors are full Academic Senate positions, with teaching Professors carrying heavier teaching and less research responsibilities. Candidate qualifications should be commensurate with the series and rank. Evaluation of candidates for appointment in the Teaching Professor series will weigh potential contributions to teaching and leadership more heavily.

The Bren School is a leader in developing cross-disciplinary solutions to environmental problems. The School's Corporate Environmental Management specialization prepares Master’s students for careers helping companies achieve their business and environmental goals. The Bren School is a graduate school within UCSB that provides rigorous, multi-disciplinary training in environmental science and management to Master’s and PhD students. The faculty are drawn from the natural sciences, social sciences, engineering, and management.

The Bren School is open to candidates from business schools and from across the social sciences, including economics, political science, sociology, and psychology.

The Bren School is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through research, teaching and service. At Bren, we recognize the intrinsic relationship between diversity and excellence in all our endeavors; we embrace open, inclusive, and equitable access to opportunities for learning and development as our obligation and goal. Our excellence can only be fully realized by faculty, students and staff who share our commitment to these principles. Successful candidates for faculty positions will demonstrate evidence of a commitment to equity and inclusion in their application materials, including the Statement describing contributions to diversity. This evidence can include:

-Efforts to advance equitable access to education;
-Public service that addresses the needs of California’s diverse population;
-Research that highlights inequalities;
-Mentoring and advising students, particularly from underrepresented and underserved populations;
-Creating effective strategies for the educational advancement of students in under-represented groups.
