The Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences at Wright State University seeks to fill a tenure-track position in the area of Aquatic Biogeochemistry at the rank of Assistant Professor starting August 2014. The College of Science and Mathematics, which houses the Department, plans a series of targeted recruitments to enhance an existing inter-department research cluster in Global Change Research. We seek applicants to join this group in exploring various environmental processes in the basic fields of biology, chemistry, and earth sciences, and their linkages to global change. Current faculty with a focus on global change participate in the Environmental Sciences Ph.D. program as well as separate M.Sc. programs in the respective departments.
We seek candidates whose research is focused within earth and environmental sciences and incorporates interactions among biological, chemical, and physical processes occurring in watersheds and aquatic environments. The candidates's research should also complement existing strengths within the department and contribute to Global Change research within the College.
Successful candidates will be expected to establish an extramurally funded research program, work collaboratively within existing research strengths in the Global Change cluster, participate in the Environmental Sciences Ph.D. degree program, and teach undergraduate and graduate courses in their areas of expertise. Competitive start-up research packages will be tailored to the specific needs of the successful candidate.
Applicants should submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, statements of research and teaching interests, and names and contact information for three references. To apply, go to http://jobs.wright.edu/postings/7047 by January 6 for first consideration. Wright State is an NSF ADVANCE institution (www.wright.edu/leader) and an EO/AA employer. We invite applications from qualified candidates and dual-career couples who share our commitment to diversity.
