The Department of Geological Sciences invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track Assistant Professor position in geochemistry beginning Fall 2013. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, environmental geochemistry, hydrogeochemistry, geochronology, biogeochemistry, paleoclimatology, petrology, and geochemical modeling.
The successful candidate is expected to build an externally-funded, innovative research program, to be committed to effective teaching at the undergraduate and graduate level, and to contribute to the academic life of the Department and University. We seek a colleague who will complement and build on the existing strengths in geoscience within the Department and across the University.
The Department of Geological Sciences resides in the College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment (CEOE), and is part of a broad geoscience community at the University of Delaware. CEOE includes the Delaware Geological Survey, the School of Marine Science and Policy, and the Departments of Geological Sciences and of Geography. The University’s current strategic plan calls for expanding research across campus in the areas of environment and energy; opportunities therefore exist for collaboration between faculty across the University’s seven colleges and for work within the auspices of the Delaware Environmental Institute (DENIN), the UD Energy Institute, and the Delaware Biotechnology Institute. The University of Delaware is a Land-Grant, Sea-Grant, and Space-Grant institution. More information about Geological Sciences and geoscience work and resources at the University of Delaware can be found at www.geosci.udel.edu/geochemistry.
A Ph.D. degree at time of appointment is required. Candidates should submit a cover letter describing their research and teaching interests and experience with a curriculum vitae, and the names and contact information for three references as one document through the online UD application system at http://www.udel.edu/udjobs/. Questions about this position can be directed to the chair of the Geochemistry Search Committee, Dr. Sue McGeary (email@example.com). Review of applications will begin on September 1, 2012, and will continue until the position is filled.
Employment offers will be conditioned upon successful completion of a criminal background check. A conviction will not necessarily exclude you from employment.
The University of Delaware is an Equal Opportunity Employer which encourages applications from Minority Group Members and Women. The University's Notice of Non-Discrimination can be found at http://www.udel.edu/aboutus/legalnotices.html
