The Department of Earth and Environmental Science is entering a period of
growth with a newly launched Ph.D. program. To achieve this growth, the
department seeks to fill two tenure-track faculty positions to begin in
August 2015. One of the positions will be in the area of REMOTE SENSING. A
second position will be in the area of GEOMATERIALS. Exceptional candidates
holding a Ph.D. are encouraged to apply at any level (assistant, associate,
or full professor). Mentoring of undergraduate and graduate students and
securing external funding are expected. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in a
relevant science discipline.

REMOTE SENSING: We especially encourage applicants with a focus on the
analysis of Earth using airborne or satellite remote sensing platforms,
expertise in digital signal processing for geoscience applications, and the
use satellite data for understanding climate change. This appointment will
complement existing expertise in geophysics, hydrogeology, structural
geology, geomorphology, and planetary geology, and make use of the new
high-performance computing cluster. Applicants should be able to teach
undergraduate and graduate courses including Remote Sensing and Physical

GEOMATERIALS: Of particular interest are applicants with a focus on energy
as well as earth science, and with expertise in mineralogy and petrology
that crossover to material science. The candidate should investigate
crystalline, glassy, or melt geomaterials with a goal of understanding the
atomic-scale characteristics that lead to macroscopic properties in earth
sciences. The individual is expected to use a combination of field or
experimental based data collection and modeling approaches. This
appointment will complement existing expertise on the properties of
nano-minerals and geochemistry within EES as well as materials research
conducted through super-computing, engineering, chemistry, and physics
utilizing a variety of in place instrumentation and the newly formed Temple
University Energy Frontier Research Center. Applicants should be able to
teach undergraduate and graduate courses including Mineralogy and Petrology.

Applications should first email a letter of intent to the appropriate
Search Committee Chair.   REMOTE SENSING applicants should send a letter of
intention to apply and any inquiries to *Alexandra Davatzes,* *Chair,
Search Committee, *alix at temple.edu, whereas GEOMATERIALS applicants should
email *Nick Davatzes,* *Chair, Search Committee, *davatzes at temple.edu.
Applicants should upload a CV, statement of teaching goals, a research
plan, names and addresses of at least three references, and selected
reprints via the following website: http://ees.cst.temple.edu/. We request
application material be submitted by *December 1, 2014*. Temple University
is a state-related research-intensive institution with an undergraduate
enrollment of more than 27,000 and nearly 10,000 graduate and professional
students. More information about our department is available at
http://www.temple.edu/geology/. Temple University is an equal opportunity,
equal access, affirmative action employer committed to achieving a diverse
community (AA, EOE, M/F/D/V). The department specifically encourages
applications from women and minorities.
