Faculty Position in Sustainable Energy Policy

The University of Notre Dame’s Keough School of Global Affairs in collaboration with the Center for Sustainable Energy at Notre Dame (ND Energy) is seeking a faculty member for a tenure track position in Sustainable Energy Policy whose research and teaching interests focus on sustainable energy policy or energy transitions in a global context.

Applicants at the assistant, associate or full professor level will be considered, with a preference for candidates with at least two years of post-doctoral experience.  A PhD is a requirement for the position; relevant fields might include engineering, public policy, political science, law, economics, business, environmental studies, and geology.

While demonstrating excellence in research and teaching is important for this position, scholars with direct experience working in energy policy and program analysis with international organizations, governments or non-governmental organizations are encouraged to apply.  Applicants should have a strong interest in interdisciplinary collaboration.

The successful candidate will be based in the Keough School where they will contribute to policy-oriented research and teaching; concurrent appointments with other units may be possible.  They will also serve as a bridge to the scholars affiliated with ND Energy, which fosters energy-related research, education, and outreach. The Keough School advances integral human development through research, policy and practice; transformative educational programs; and partnerships for global engagement. It promotes interdisciplinary research on critical issues in global affairs, offers a master’s degree as well as undergraduate and doctoral programs, and maintains an office in Washington DC.

All applicants are required to submit a cover letter and a CV. Evidence of teaching effectiveness is also welcomed. Junior candidates (including PhD students, postdocs, assistant or non-tenured associate professors) should also arrange for the submission of three confidential letters of reference. All application materials must be submitted through the Interfolio online application system.

Nominations and inquiries may be sent via email to:

Ted Beatty
Professor and Associate Dean for Academic Affairs
Keough School of Global Affairs
University of Notre Dame

The position will close on October 15, 2021, and review of applications will begin at that time.

All application materials must be submitted through the Interfolio/Notre Dame online application system.
