Full-time permanent academic position in the wider field of Environmental Humanities

The Institute for Environmental Management and Land-use Planning (http://igeat.ulb.ac.be/) within the Department for Geosciences, Environment and Society (https://www2.ulb.ac.be/facs/sciences/dges) is seeking to appoint a new colleague to enter a full-time permanent academic position in the wider field of Environmental Humanities to reinforce its research and teaching capacities in the domain of Sustainability Sciences.
The profile is oriented to recruit a colleague with a research experience situated in the understanding of citizens/individuals/consumers as actors in societal, sustainability-oriented transition and transformation processes, be the latter wanted, imagined, governed or forced upon actors. The candidate should demonstrate research activities in the strong sustainability domain centered on the analyses at micro-levels (individuals, consumers, citizens) or meso-levels (collectives, movements, groups, initiatives, networks), while in the same time being able to link these to developments at macro-levels, for instance by questioning institutional or societal structures, or developing governance aspects. The profile excludes any mono-disciplinary approaches, and calls for candidates who anchor their work in approaches lend from the social and human sciences (in the wider sense) in order to investigate conditions or characteristics of strong sustainability by deploying pedagogical and research competences that are resolutely inter- and/or transdisciplinary.
