The successful candidate is expected to maintain an impactful program of research relevant to broad societal, economic, and business issues and to communicate results to policymakers and practitioners. Excellent teaching skills are a must. The successful candidate will also be expected to be actively involved in Cornell University’s Atkinson Center for Sustainability, the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business’s interdisciplinary theme, The Business of Sustainability, and in the College’s centers related to sustainability issues, such as the Center for Sustainable Global Enterprise.
