Paul Bartlett teaches Earth Justice, Environmental Science, Climate Science, and Statistics at John Jay College and Fordham University.  Prof. Bartlett is engaged in international collaborative research on environmental persistent toxics and sustainability across the curriculum in higher education.

Paul Bartlett began his environmental justice career serving contaminated (local, indigenous, regional, and global) communities as an environmental scientist and ecological economist  working for noted pioneering ecologist and scientist-activist Barry Commoner founder and director of the Center for the Biology of Natural Systems at Queens College (presently named the Commoner Center for Health and the Environment).

For New York, Paul Bartlett conducted research on NYC intensive recycling and economic development, dioxin pollution prevention and contamination of the Great LakesPCB air emission and fallout from the Hudson River, atrazine pesticide emission and fallout in the NYC water supply watershed, and technical support for first responders, workers and residents exposted to the 911 WTC toxics

Prior to arriving at John Jay College, Paul Bartlett was a guest lecturer at the Arctic University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS) Norway,  a consultant to the Instituto Nacional de Ecología y Cambio Climático (INECC) Mexico and North American Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC/CCA/CCE) and a member of the POPs expert working group of the United Nations (UNECE-EMEP) Task Force of Modeling and Measurements (TFMM) and Task Force on Hemispheric Air Pollutants (HTAP).

Paul Bartlett is a lead chapter author in the recent Chemicals of Emerging Arctic Concern Assessment for the intergovernmental Arctic Monitoring Asessment Programme (AMAP) a working group of the Arctic Council consisting of the eight Arctic states and six indigenous organizations. (Updated in Emerging Contaminants Vol. 5 2019, Elsevier, Open Access.Presently Prof. Bartlett is a participant of the AMAP's POPs/EC expert working group assessing Arctic Persistent Toxics (POPs/CEACs) and Climate Change. Paul Bartlett was appointed in February 2019 to the scientific committee of the new Polar Academy of Harbin Institute of Technology China to train students in polar research and foster international research collaborations. 

In the field of environmental education Paul Bartlett is a lead author for a chapter in the forthcoming book The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Institutions of Higher Education: Concepts, cases and good practices, ed. by Godwell Nhamo and Vuyo Mjimba published by Springer Nature 2020 (print and ebook) which is based on presentations at the International Sustainable Development Conference (IC-SD) of the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network (UNSDSN) in fall of 2018 at Columbia University. Paul Bartlett is part of a Saint Peter's University research working group using a meta-cognition approach to the public engagement with environmental science and educational socio-scientific inquiry, reasoning, and pedagogy, publications forthcoming.
