Nominations due: March 1, 2017
A maximum of 4 Fellows may be elected this year.
A committee consisting of the current Fellows of the Society will review and vote on the nominations.
Competitive positions are available for highly motivated and promising individuals seeking a PhD or Lab Coordinator position related to the PSYCHOLOGY OF HUMAN-ANIMAL INTERACTION with Dr. Maggie O’Haire. The successful applicant will be housed within the Center for the Human-Animal Bond at Purdue University. The research program will focus on the scientific evaluation of SERVICE DOGS for military veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder and their families.
Humane Society International (HSI) and the Animals and Society Institute (ASI) are happy to announce the call for proposals for the fourth annual HSI-ASI Human-Animal Studies International Development Project (HASIDP). The purpose of this competitive program is to provide one non-American university per year the resources to build its own human-animal studies program.
Human-Animal Studies (HAS) programs have proliferated at universities in some countries. Still, a great many universities have faculty and students who are interested in developing such programs, but lack the resources to create them on their own. This program fills that gap by providing the financial and knowledge-based resources that such scholars, students, and universities need to build their own HAS programs.
Application Deadline: January 1, 2017
The International Development Project is directed by Andrew Rowan and Bernard Unti of Humane Society International/The Humane Society of the United States, and Kenneth J. Shapiro and Margo DeMello of the Animals & Society Institute. Please address all correspondence to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences seeks to appoint an outstanding lecturer in human-animal studies with expertise in research methods within the Department of Politics and Society and the Centre for Animal Welfare.
NYU’s Animal Studies Initiative, an integral part of the Department of Environmental Studies, invites applications for the position of Faculty Fellow. The appointment will be for one year beginning September 1, 2017, renewable annually for a maximum of three years, pending administrative and budgetary approval. The successful applicant will contribute to the education of undergraduates minoring in Animal Studies, teaching three courses per year, and serving as the advisor to the minors. In addition, the successful candidate will help organize and actively participate in an initiative directed towards developing Animal Studies as a rigorous field of academic inquiry.
