Job Description

To apply for this job please visit jobs.rowan.edu.

Rowan University’s newly launched Catalysts for Sustainability program seeks to hire ten new faculty to develop, advance, and communicate solutions to humanity’s most pressing existential threats posed by the climate and biodiversity crises. The university-wide cohort will lead and collaborate across colleges, disciplines, and communities, catalyzing new initiatives in sustainability research, advocacy, and education while leveraging existing strengths. This project builds upon Rowan University’s strategic pillars (access, affordability, quality, and serving as an economic engine) and furthers our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Successful candidates will demonstrate expertise related to the climate and biodiversity crises in one or more of the following areas: environmental justice; education and public engagement including storytelling; public policy and advocacy; discipline-specific sustainability scholarship; and sustainability practice.

The School of Nursing & Health Professions is seeking a qualified individual to serve as one of the ten new faculty in the Catalysts for Sustainability program.  This individual will engage in teaching, research and service which is centered on the climate and biodiversity crises as it relates to health and well-being.  This person must have a passion for teaching undergraduate and graduate students, as well as a desire to engage in research and community service around sustainability and the climate and biodiversity crises.  The development and teaching of academic courses that are built upon a sound pedagogy is essential in this position.  Ideally, the individual will engage students in their research and their research will inform and enhance their classroom instruction.  The home department of this new faculty member will be determined by their academic area of expertise, with the possibility of a joint appointment across the two departments in the School.

The successful candidate will be encouraged to develop collaborative multidisciplinary projects with other faculty hired as part of the Catalysts cohort, as well as faculty who are part of the University’s two schools of allopathic (www.rowan.edu/coopermed/) and osteopathic (www.rowan.edu/som/) medicine.  The candidate will lead education and advocacy efforts both on campus and in the community.

Successful candidates will have the ability to teach undergraduate and/or graduate courses in the area of environmental health and to contribute to courses in which nurses, dietitians, public health workers and other health professionals are prepared to address the impacts of the climate and biodiversity crisis on the populations they serve through their professional practice.

Additional qualifications:

• Demonstrated commitment to working in an environment devoted to collaboration, collegiality, professional development, diversity, scholarly inquiry, student learning, civic responsibility, and respect for all people

• A teaching philosophy that is student-centered, inclusive, equitable for all students, and recognizes and values diverse individuals and viewpoints

• Knowledge of current research-based best teaching practices and the role of technology in teaching and learning
