Tufts University is a world-renowned research university dedicated to the creation and application of knowledge.

International environmental policy is a flagship field at The Fletcher School.  The rapid growth of resource use and the acceleration of land conversion to feed and house an expanding population have created a new set of transboundary and global commons problems.  The program demonstrates how environment and resource issues are integral to the ongoing economic development process and are critical to the security of societies.  The program emphasizes the need to utilize multiple disciplinary tools from science, economics, politics, law and engineering in developing sustainable solutions.

For this professorship in international environmental policy we seek an internationally recognized leader for a tenure-track faculty position at the level of Assistant or Associate Professor.
