Human-induced climate change is transforming our physical and social world, and we are witnessing a ‘climate gap,’ in which the impacts of these changes disproportionately affect vulnerable and marginalized groups due to historically entrenched inequities and more recent shifts in the global economy. Accordingly, this faculty cluster hiring initiative focuses on three broad themes: Social Equity and Environmental Sustainability; Adaptation Infrastructure, Planning and Design for Climate Justice; and Climate Refugees and Forced Migration.We seek individuals who will excel at Berkeley in their research, teaching, and service, and who have engaged, or plan to engage in activities that promote our goals of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), and values as one of the world’s leading public institutions of higher education.For more information about the position, including required qualifications and application materials, go to https://aprecruit.berkeley.edu/JPF02634.
