Full professor in Sustainable Agriculture to lead new program in Food
Studies at Middlebury College

Middlebury College seeks a scientist working in Sustainable Agriculture to
spearhead the development of a Food Studies program that incorporates both
curricular and co-curricular components.  This is a full-time, 11-month
position.  Hiring will be at the full professor rank.  We seek a leader in
sustainable agriculture and food studies who will contribute to the
establishment of a Food Studies curriculum that addresses food systems at
local, regional, and global scales, to create a program that integrates the
study of food systems—in and out of the classroom, on the Middlebury campus
and beyond—with the further development of a sustainable, local system of
food production and procurement at the College. The successful candidate
will teach courses on the science of sustainable agriculture, and must be
eager to engage the unique learning opportunities available at a liberal
arts college. Areas of focus of teaching and/or research may include (but
are not limited to): agroecology, soil science, biotechnology and food,
food production and nutrition, landscape-level processes in agricultural
ecosystems, sustainable food systems, sustainable agricultural practices
(organic agriculture, integrated pest management), and agricultural
adaptations to global change.

Middlebury College is a top-tier liberal arts college with a demonstrated
commitment to excellence in faculty teaching and research. An Equal
Opportunity Employer, the College is committed to hiring a diverse faculty
as we work to foster innovation in our curriculum and to provide a rich and
varied educational experience to our increasingly diverse student body.

Review of applications will begin November 1, 2013, and continue until the
position is filled. Middlebury College uses Interfolio to collect all job
applications electronically. Email and paper applications will not be
accepted. Through Interfolio, please submit a letter of application
addressed to Andi Lloyd, Chair of the Food Studies Search Committee, along
with a C.V., a statement of teaching and research interests that addresses
opportunities for undergraduate involvement in research, and three letters
of recommendation. 
 Questions about the position can be directed to Andi Lloyd, Chair of the
Search Committee, at lloyd@middlebury.edu
