Applications received before November 1, 2024, 11:59 pm eastern time, will be given full consideration. Currie C. and Thomas A. Barron Visiting Professor in the Environment and Humanities.

Princeton University seeks to appoint a distinguished humanist whose work is related to the environment for the 2025-2026 academic year. The on-campus position will provide salary plus benefits for the academic year. The funds may be used to supplement a sabbatical leave.

The position is supported by the High Meadows Environmental Institute – the interdisciplinary center of environmental research, education, and outreach at Princeton University. Persons appointed will hold the title of the Currie C. and Thomas A. Barron Visiting Professor in the Environment and Humanities.

Applicants should be accomplished scholars on leave from their home institution, who have exceptional records of publication and teaching and whose interests lie at the intersection of environmental issues and the humanities. Of particular interest are scholars with expertise and interests related to air and water sustainability, biodiversity, energy, environmental justice, food system change, global health, global warming, and wilderness histories and futures. There is no geographic limitation. Backgrounds in American studies, settler colonial studies, Indigenous studies, environmental art and media, environmental history, literature and environment, cultural anthropology and geography, and religion and ecology are especially welcome.

In addition to accomplished scholars, environmental practitioners who may not hold a university position but who have a distinguished record as leaders in national environmental organizations or in the arts may also qualify for the Barron Visiting position.

The visitor(s) will have a shared appointment in the High Meadows Environmental Institute and a supporting department at Princeton University. The incumbent Barron Visitor(s) will be expected to contribute to the life of this vibrant academic center and to cultivate dialogue at the intersection of the humanities and the environment at Princeton. They will be expected to teach an average of one course per semester subject to sufficient enrollment and approval by the Dean of the Faculty and to mentor/advise two to three students on independent projects. Other activities may include the organization of University/public lectures and forums on related topics. Remaining duty time may be devoted to research and writing and other professional pursuits.

The incumbent’s annual salary will be determined based upon their salary at the home institution, not to exceed the level established for an equivalent rank of associate or full professor in the supporting department.

Applications should include (1) a cover letter; (2) a brief description of any previous experience in interdisciplinary and/or collaborative research; (3) a statement of research and teaching plans at the intersection of environment and humanities; (4) a current curriculum vitae and (5) for scholars on sabbatical leave, an indication of and justification for the level of support requested.
