The University of Washington Tacoma invites applications for a full time
tenure-track Assistant Professor in Geology in the Interdisciplinary Arts &
Sciences (IAS) Program. We are searching for an intellectually expansive
scholar whose research and teaching interests address riverine, estuarine,
and/or coastal marine geologic systems and processes, broadly speaking,
including sedimentology and geomorphology. The successful candidate is
expected to develop and lead a strong field-based research program that
engages students and takes advantage of the diverse Pacific Northwest
environment. Expertise in hydrogeology, soil science, paleontology,
stratigraphy or other geology related specialties is a plus. The successful
candidate will be expected to work with diverse student populations,
prepared to involve students in faculty research, and eager to integrate
new pedagogical techniques and technologies into teaching/learning.

The position primarily contributes to the Geoscience track in the
Environmental Science major and supports other interdisciplinary majors and
concentrations at UW Tacoma. All the natural sciences at the University are
housed in our Environmental Science group within IAS, with significant
research facilities on campus and at our Center for Urban Waters (
www.tacoma.uw.edu/cuw).  Collaborations among the many outstanding UW
environmental programs on our three campuses, including our new UW
Freshwater Initiative, are encouraged. The position begins September 16,
2014, requires an earned doctorate or foreign equivalent in Geology or
closely related field at the time of appointment, and is contingent on
funding. A candidate in the final stage of his/her dissertation would be
appointed on an acting basis.

Resources home page: (

The University of Washington is an affirmative action, equal opportunity
employer. The University is building a culturally diverse faculty and staff
and strongly encourages applications from women, racial/ethnic minority
group members, individuals with disabilities, and veterans.  UW Tacoma
faculty engage in teaching, research, and service and generally participate
in lower-division, upper-division, and graduate instruction.
