Associate/Full Professor of Human Geography, Dartmouth College

Review of applications will begin on 15 September 2023 and continue until the position is filled.

The Department of Geography at Dartmouth College invites applications for a full-time tenured appointment in Human Geography at the rank of Associate or Full Professor. We seek individuals committed to creative scholarship and teaching in areas such as Black geographies, critical race studies, critical ethnic studies, Black radical thought, queer studies, Indigenous studies, Latinx geographies, Asian American Studies, and other areas of critical human geography.

Our faculty regularly collaborate with numerous units across campus. Depending on specific interests, the person in this position can expect to find willing collaborators in, for example, the Departments of Latin American, Latino, and Caribbean Studies (LALACS), African and African American Studies (AAAS), Native American and Indigenous studies (NAIS), Anthropology, and History, as well as the Program in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. Our faculty also collaborate regularly with the Leslie Center for the Humanities, the Nelson A. Rockefeller Center for Public Policy the John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding, and the Irving Institute for Energy and Society. Several members of our faculty are affiliated with the interdisciplinary graduate program Ecology, Evolution, Environment & Society (EEES) and are actively advising graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. We have a regular two-year Postdoctoral Fellow in Human Geography and have been successful in sponsoring postdoctoral fellows through the Provost’s Fellowship (PROF) program, the Society of Fellows, and the Neukom Fellows program. Graduate students and postdoctoral scholars are supported by the Guarini School for Graduate and Advanced Studies, including their diversity and inclusion initiatives. In addition, we are especially interested in applicants who can contribute to undergraduate research initiatives, including those that advance diversity in the discipline such as the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship. All faculty in Geography regularly engage undergraduate research assistants in ongoing research projects through Dartmouth-sponsored initiatives such as the Women in Science Project (WISP) and the Presidential Scholar program.
