Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. All York University positions are subject to budgetary approval.
A PhD in a relevant field is required, as is the ability to bridge different disciplines and/or knowledge systems in addressing real-world problems that link ecology and economics. We encourage candidates from Indigenous, racialized, and marginalized communities to apply.

We are seeking outstanding candidates to contribute to the Faculty’s long tradition of applied expertise in ecological economics. In addition to specialization in ecological economics, expertise in one or more of the following areas is preferred: social-ecological systems and economics; biophysical economics; environmental and/or climate justice; nature-based solutions and approaches to climate change; systems theory, modelling and practice; degrowth economics; feminist ecological economics; sustainability assessment and resource accounting; non-Western and decolonizing approaches to ecological economics; the ecological footprint; participatory methods in ecological economics; commons; care economies; community-based green economies; non-market valuation; ecologically unequal exchange; equity and innovation in ecological economics. The successful candidate will be competent in the application of quantitative and/or qualitative research methods in ecological economics.

The successful candidate will be expected to engage in outstanding, innovative, and, as appropriate, externally funded research at the highest level. Candidates must provide evidence of research excellence or promise of research excellence of a recognized international calibre as demonstrated in: the research statement; a record of publications (or forthcoming publications) with significant journals in the field; knowledge mobilization and community engagement; presentations at major conferences; awards and accolades; and strong recommendations from referees of high standing. The successful candidate will also exhibit strong capacity and potential for outstanding teaching contributions at undergraduate and graduate levels, and commitment to academic and pedagogical excellence, including attention to equity and diversity. The position will involve graduate teaching and supervision and the successful candidate must be suitable for prompt appointment to the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Evidence of excellence or promise of excellence in teaching will be provided through: the teaching statement; teaching accomplishments and pedagogical innovations including in high priority areas such as experiential education and technology enhanced learning; teaching evaluations; and strong letters of reference. Finally, the successful candidate will be required to make substantive contributions through service to the Faculty.
