Chair, Department of Geological Sciences
University of Delaware
Newark, Delaware

The Department of Geological Sciences in the College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment at the University of Delaware invites applications for the position of Department Chair. We are seeking an ambitious, creative, and innovative leader with a vision for the Geological Sciences within a large, dynamic interdisciplinary community of environmental science. The Chair is expected to provide academic leadership, support excellent teaching, and maintain a world-class research program that complements Department strengths in groundwater modeling, mineral formation/geochemistry, geomicrobiology, geomorphology, geophysics, and stratigraphy. 

We encourage applications from individuals in the broad fields of hydrogeology, aqueous geochemistry, and/or sedimentary processes. This may include, but is not limited to: 1) subsurface fluid and reactive solute transport processes (pore to basin scales) or 2) quantitative stratigraphic characterization (e.g., using geostatistical, physical, or numerical modeling). The successful applicant will have credentials commensurate with those of a tenured Full Professor. Previous management or leadership experience is desirable.

The University of Delaware provides a nationally recognized environmental research base through existing strengths across the University’s seven colleges and in a number of well-regarded institutes and research centers, including the Delaware Geological Survey (http://www.dgs.udel.edu/) and the Delaware Environmental Institute (http://denin.udel.edu/). The new state-of-the-art 194,000-square-foot Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Laboratory (www.udel.edu/iselab) provides a focal point for environmental research and teaching on campus. More details on our environmental programs can be found at www.environmentalportal.udel.edu/.
