The Environmental Resilience Institute (ERI) at Indiana University (IU) invites applications for a Fellow position in Midwestern and Indiana community history to begin in Fall 2018 (non-tenure track faculty-level); the appointment is renewable for up to four years. Applicants with interests in environmental, urban, social, and landscape history are especially encouraged to apply. Fellows will enjoy a generous research allowance, a rich collaborative environment, and eligibility to serve as PI on external grants.
The position is part of IU’s Prepared for Environmental Change Grand Challenge initiative (http://grandchallenges.iu.edu/p4ec). With a primary appointment in the ERI, the successful candidate will join a cohort of twelve Fellows of the ERI and a growing community of colleagues across the sciences, social sciences, and humanities who are engaged in this collaborative program of research and communication about environmental change. Formal affiliation with relevant department(s) and school(s) will be arranged on a case-by-case basis. Excellent fellow candidates will have experience with and openness toward multi-and trans-disciplinary collaborative research.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. prior to employment along with demonstrated research experience in Midwestern social and/or environmental history; applicants with prior post-doctoral training will be favored in the review process.

Appointment will be for two years initially, with opportunity for renewal for an additional two years. The successful candidate will also hold Adjunct Research Scientist status in the IU Department of History and will be welcomed to join in that department’s intellectual and social activities.
