Profile

The Frederick A. and Barbara M. Erb Institute for Global Sustainable Enterprise at the University of Michigan seeks a post-doctoral scholar to help develop and lead a two-year research effort on measuring the impact of corporate sustainability efforts with the goal of advancing the triple-bottom-line. Specifically, the institute\u2014in partnership with the Ford Motor Company\u2014seeks answers to the following questions: 1. What is the current state-of-the-art with respect to identifying, operationalizing, and measuring sustainability impacts (broadly defined to include social, environmental,\u00a0and\u00a0economic outcomes)? 2. How might impact metrics be better integrated with corporate decision-making (e.g., about overall corporate strategy, the development of products and services, etc.) such that tradeoffs across social, environmental, and economic objectives are better accounted for by executives, managers, and stakeholders? Based on our observations and experiences, there exist countless opportunities for improving upon the identification, operationalization, measurement,\u00a0and\u00a0integration (in corporate decision-making) of sustainability impacts. Thus, a key focus of this research will be on the development and testing of approaches and\/or tools for deployment in real-world corporate sustainability settings. Post-Doctoral Research Fellows are appointed for two years in the Erb Institute and are expected to be in residence during the academic years of the fellowship, participate in the intellectual life of the Institute, and devote time to their independent research. If desired, classroom instruction may be included in the agreement,\u00a0pending the availability of suitable teaching opportunities. Supervision, support, and mentoring for this project will be provided by a consortium of faculty members appointed in the Erb Institute, company partners, and Erb Institute staff. Additional details about the expectations and responsibilities of post-doctoral fellows in the Erb Institute may be found\u00a0. The annual stipend will be $65,000 based on an academic year, September 1 \u2013 August 31; a modest discretionary research fund will also be provided in addition to funds required for direct research expenses. Fellows are eligible for University employee benefits programs including health and life insurance options. Required Qualifications* Until February 23, 2018, The Erb Institute will be accepting applications from talented and creative early-career scholars who will conduct high-quality and interdisciplinary research that is responsive to opportunity outlined above; participate in seeking additional extramural funding related to their research; write jointly-authored and peer-reviewed articles; and contribute content for a broad array of audiences under the Erb Institute\u2019s thought leadership banner. Applicants must be at the beginning of their academic careers, having received their Ph.D. or comparable degree between September 1, 2015, and August 31, 2018. Individuals holding current academic positions at a rank above post-doctoral fellow are not eligible to apply. Fellowships are open to U.S. and non-U.S. citizens. Application Deadline Job openings are posted for a minimum of seven calendar days. This job may be removed from posting boards and filled anytime after the minimum posting period has ended.
