Job Offers & Opportunities

Assistant Professor in Environmental Globalisation

Deadline: October 31, 2019

Wageningen University & Research is looking for an emerging scholar in the field of environmental globalization. You are interested in exploring how globalisation can be shaped to contribute to environmentally positive outcomes. You have a PhD in environmental sociology, political science, geography or a related discipline, with a demonstrated interest in how global trade, investment and international relations affect environmental policies and practices relating to natural resources, climate and/or urban environments. Your research will take a comparative empirical approach to understanding how these policies and practices contribute to different modes of ‘environmental globalisation’ in both the global North and South, preferably with a focus on China, Europe and the United States. In doing so, you will analyse the processes and practices as well as limits and constraints of environmental globalisation in achieving positive sustainability outcomes. Your work will contribute to the development of a new theoretical field of environmental globalization.

You will be given support to develop theoretically informed and policy relevant research on the governance of coastal and marine environments. Thematically your research addresses environmental concerns related to the effects of globally embedded economic activities – e.g. tourism, energy production, food production, coastal infrastructure or urban development – on the vulnerability and adaptation of coastal regions.
